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

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

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.

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