Northern BC is like nothing you've ever experienced - big mountains, rich culture & more bears than people!

A backcountry lodge in Canada that offers all the charm of a European mountain hut - all to yourself!

Burnie Glacier Chalet is easy to get to - leave Vancouver in the morning and ski in the afternoon!

The ultimate backcountry experience in the mountains of northwestern BC.

It's big. Much of it is alpine and glaciated. It appeals to stronger skiers.

Welcome to the Burnie Glacier Chalet. Far north and west of all other British Columbia lodges, we have been a hot tip for years. And we intend to stay so! Please have a look around. The calendar is usually quite accurate, but please contact us if the week you want is full. There are sometimes openings, and things can change.  Watch the video, send us a message, and soon we may be skiing or climbing together. The mountains are always waiting.


Christoph and Sean did an amazing job of always finding perfect lines for us. Burnie Chalet is in an amazing location with fantastic scenery and ski terrain. Wonderful touring with the best skiing of my life.
