When you think of the world’s great eco-lodges, the tropics—and not a Canadian ski area—usually come to mind. Built in a nook between the Rocky and Purcell mountains and only minutes from the Kicking Horse Ski Resort, the alpine-chic-but-homey Kicking Horse River Lodge has 15 private rooms, two 16-person dorm rooms, and an impressive green resume. Most notably, its geothermal heating and cooling system and the hydroelectric energy that powers the building shrink its carbon footprint to tiny levels. Dorm rooms start at $36 per night.
