Storm Mountain Lodge was constructed in 1922 as one of eight Bungalow Camps built by Canadian Pacific Railway to promote tourism in the Rocky Mountains. The completion of a coast-to-coast railway in 1885 significantly contributed to the arrival of visitors and to the popularity of this area. Storm Mountain Bungalow Camp originally consisted of a log lodge with a broad verandah, six log bungalows, a public bathhouse, and bathroom. Six years later another six log bungalows were added. The original lodge and bungalows are still enjoyed by guests today.
