Lac La Hache / Timothy Lake & Area

The community of Lac La Hache stretches out along an impressive lake of the same name. There are many stories of how “lake of the axe” got its name. One version gives credit to an early settler who dropped his axe into the lake while chopping a hole in the ice. Since then, many others have used axes to chop holes in the ice and then took advantage of the perfect ice fishing conditions. In the summer fishers, loons and eagles are easily spotted waiting to capture a tasty meal.

Lac La Hache is also home to the Mt. Timothy Ski Hill. At 1654 m in elevation, a drop of 284 m, Mt. Timothy is an undiscovered gem, boasting a well-equipped day lodge, modern triple chairlift, over 34 runs in every skill level and best of all, deep dry powder snow.

Lakeside resorts, B&Bs, guest ranches and motels offer accommodation all year-round. Seasonal waterfront campgrounds provide sites for your RV or tent and have great access for swimming, boating, jet skiing, or just basking in the sun.
