Mountaineering Course at Burnie

There is no better place to learn the art of mountaineering than the wild Howsons around the Burnie Glacier Chalet. Rock climbing. Ice climbing. Glacier travel. Crevasse rescue. High mountain navigation. Trip planning. What gear to buy (you can use ours for the course, no extra cost). You step outsie the lodge and are in mountain terrain. Includes flights, food, accommodation, instruction and rental gear.

Rock climbing is simply the most fun you can have. Learning to move on steep rock, jamming cracks, bridging overhangs and feeling like a bird are unforgettable experiences.

Learn to do them safely at the granite crags of Chist Creek near Terrace, with a fully certified mountain guide.

We offer week-long mountaineering courses at the Burnie Glacier Chalet. From this ideal base, you will learn rock climbing, ice climbing, glacier travel, navigation and all the excitement of big mountain climbing. Come and enjoy the thrill of mountaineering in Northern BC’s wonderful wilderness.
