Mike McKnight

Mike McKnight and Merle in front of Vertebrae and Solitude Lodges. Mike has participated in almost all aspects of the development of Chatter creek. After a career as Park Warden at Lake Louise, Mike thought he had retired a year or two ago. However, his days have been filled by Chatter Creek chores ranging from helping to load guests in and out of helicopters, to looking after much of the company's business in Golden, to helping with summer construction projects and with solving endless problems relating to equipment and procuring materials for the lodge site. Mike McKnight provided a lot of the basic log-building expertise for the "Bath House" and later helped with Vertebrae Lodge. Much of the equipment used to construct Chatter Creek belonged to Mike.

Mike was insturmental in the development and operation of the original Whitetooth Ski Area that has now become Kicking horse Resort. Mike and Merle recently sold a beautiful log home that Mike had build above Nicholson and they plan to retire soon to Penticton.
