Forte is a modern mountain dining destination, part of the stunning Pomeroy Kananaskis Mountain Lodge. A three-meal Italian concept, Forte takes stylistic cues from the surrounding mountain range, opting for naturally warm and bright tones that run in welcome contrast to the typical heavy-log, cabin-fever, dark winter interiors so often seen in the region.
Guests have direct access to a large outdoor patio with unobstructed views of the snow capped mountains in full-view during service. The communal open-concept layout brings buffet service right into the dining room, as opposed to a separate area with sneeze guards that would be put aside and waste space during dinner service. Instead, it’s filled with custom light fixtures, furniture, and an open-fire pizza oven. The originally developed branding and curated artwork go hand-in-hand, with pieces featuring regional wolves, bears, and moose to complete the ambience.
