The Bugaboos got their name from a turn-of-the-20th-century gold hoax. The name alone is in part responsible for their iconic stature in the mountain world, though the credibility of this reputation cannot be doubted when one considers the stream of legendary climbers who, during the 1950s – 70s, sought first-ascents on many of these peaks.

Newly renovated Bugaboo Lodge sits about 1,600 metres (nearly a mile) high, with 35 rooms with private baths, a wood and stone bar-lounge, an expanded spa area with sauna, steam room, a games room, a handy shop, and a new rooftop hot tub with an extraordinary view. Unique to the Bugaboos, area manager Dave Cochrane has compiled a small interpretive museum of maps, pictures, natural history exhibits, and assorted fascinating Bugaboos memorabilia.
