About the Hollyburn Lodge Renewal Project
The Hollyburn Lodge is a unique and cherished West Vancouver landmark. The lodge sits on the western shore of First Lake and is connected to a network of ski and hiking trails that wind through the hemlock, cedar and fir forests of Hollyburn Ridge.
Hollyburn Lodge is the only surviving commercial lodge built on Vancouver’s North Shore Mountains before 1960 and has significant, tangible links to the development of snow sports in BC during the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s.
Creating opportunities for future generations to celebrate the culture of this mountain tradition is the guiding principle of the renewal project.
“Hollyburn Lodge has been the backcountry community centre of the Hollyburn Ridge recreationalists for almost ninety years. Now is the time to show your love for Hollyburn, for continued enjoyment today and for future generations. Please help us rebuild Hollyburn Lodge, in its fabulous First Lake location, recognizing and maintaining its unique heritage and historic design.” – Jackie Swanson, President, Hollyburn Ridge Association.
