The ultimate backcountry experience in the mountains of northwestern BC.

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

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

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

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

My husband and I did the second half of the Donjek River route with Christoph Dietzfelbinger of Bear Mountaineering in 2010. This was our first trip with him but not our last, as we intend to do another in 2011. The trip was a complete success thanks to his expertise, organization, and personality. The equipment and food were great, his enthusiasm and experience inspire confidence, and Christoph is a charming and interesting fireside companion. We both unreservedly recommend Bear Mountaineering to anyone wanting guided wilderness travel in western Canada.
