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

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!

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.

Mountaineering Course at Burnie

The Burnie Glacier Chalet is right across the valley from the toe of the Burnie Glacier. There are climbing crags within 20 minutes and a practice area on the glacier within 30 minutes walk.
 

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.
