The autumn season is a special time for us here at Tyax Lodge & Heliskiing. As we busy ourselves for the winter around the lodge, animals return from the high alpine into the valleys and the mountain peaks become adorned in forests of orange, red, and yellow as the leaves change colour. Although not as busy as the summer season, the fall is the perfect time to find some solace and escape for a weekend in the wild surroundings of the Chilcotin Mountains.
The crisp days of fall are perfect for hiking in. Animal sightings are plentiful, and walking through the spectacular displays of leaves changing colours is an experience not to be missed. For a fuller day, hike into the alpine for panoramic views of autumn-turned valleys – you may even see some fresh snow coating the mountain peaks. Start hiking in the cool mornings, and as the day unfolds the sun will warm the air to a pleasant temperature perfect for hiking in.
Biking is also a popular for us here at Tyax and even more enjoyable in the fall! Take a float plane to remote singletrack and ride back to the lodge, or ride into the alpine for spectacular views of the immense mountains that surrounded us here in the South Chilcotins. Let our experienced and knowledgeable guides show you their favourite trails and areas to ride in the autumn.
Wrap up your day in our lodge with a hearty meal, a relaxing visit to our spa, and a fireside nightcap.
Dining and Relaxation
Our Executive Chef Dave Hassell and the Spa at Tyax are all passionate about incorporating wild, local sustainably harvested products to our guests, and our wild and untamed surroundings provide a bounty of ingredients right at our doorstep. Beginning in the fall, our restaurant begins unveiling new creations from the seasonal ingredients available to us. From locally sourced root vegetables directly from our backyard in Lillooet, to berries harvested right from the surroundings around the lodge, the dishes conjured up are sure to capture your imagination and tastebuds with distinctly fall flavours.
