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!

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!

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

We loved our course and the entire trip. Sensational views, excellent chalet, highly trained and informative guides, Molly's superb cooking and all that powder.

We have lived in Smithers for 14 years, have travelled the world, and all this time, since 2001, this gem of an experience was right on our doorstep. We will be back a lot more often. We enjoyed the chalet and really appreciated the course, patience and tips we received from Christoph and Lucas. The last time we had someone preparing food for us that was this good was nearly 30 years ago, in a camp where Molly's mother was the cook. Thank you for an amazing experience.
