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!

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

The ultimate backcountry experience in the mountains of northwestern BC.

Awesome week – the most fun educational experience I’ve had. Unbelievable terrain – huge! Great options from alpine to perfect glades. The sauna is truly a highlight and a must at the end of the day. Thanks to Monika and Dave for feeding us like kings each and every day. Christoph gave us the goods and a tonne of knowledge. I’ll be back! Thanks Christoph.
