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!

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.

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

Christoph Dietzfelbinger

Like you, I love skiing, climbing and being in the mountains. This has been my passion since I was 15, and my excitement is as keen as it always was, only now with 35 years of experience to share.

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.
