As a result of the massive 2017 fire, remaining snag forests surrounding Siwash Lake are open, burned clear of debris and thick brush, which has created expansive windows to the horizon.
Free of Light Pollution
One can appreciate our natural light on a much grander scale than prior to the fire. Whether you are watching billowy clouds sail across an azure sky or admiring a vibrant sunrise or sunset on the skyline, Siwash Lake provides the perfect viewing platform.
As well, the resort is off-the-grid. Light pollution is minimal here. Far, far away from any form of urban sprawl, there is no ambient light from adjacent cities to compromise the pristine vistas. Our night skies are magnificent amid the natural darkness at Siwash Lake.
Until several generations ago, before the spread of cities and technology could overpower a landscape with lighting, the stars at night were part of the universal human experience; now an estimated 80% of the developed world is unable to see the Milky Way.
