Mount Assiniboine’s south and east impressive sides can be seen from Talus Lodge and surrounding area. Talus Lodge is 21 km SE of Mount Assiniboine, as the crow flies.
Come to Talus Lodge to watch Mount Assiniboine create its own weather. On clear days, lenticular clouds hit its summit as they pass over it fueled by west/south west winds. On windy and stormy days the nature show can be observed as clouds boil from the Cross River valley below Talus and storms pass through White Man Pass. Lightning of course is also very impressive to watch from the safety of our comfortable lodge.
