Deroche’s Denny and Al Stobbart do everything they can to ensure an exceptional experience for guests to Sasquatch Crossing Eco Lodge, which is located in Agassiz and is a recent acquisition by the Sts’ailes First Nation and operates under the Sts’ailes Development Corporation.

One of eight awards, it is presented to “an Aboriginal accommodation with outstanding customer service, facilities and amenities which enhance overall guest experience.”

Chief Willie Charlie, who is also the CEO for the Sts’ailes Development Corporation, states that “Denny and Al are excellent hosts, and through their dedication have assisted Sts’ailes to create an award-winning tourism business. Denny and Al are positively impacting the Aboriginal tourism industry in British Columbia by providing a unique guest experience and intercultural understanding; most take away some knowledge of the local history, environment, and lands.”
