Bear Mountaineering

Welcome to the Burnie Glacier Chalet. Far north and west of all other British Columbia lodges, we have been a hot tip for years. And we intend to stay so! We are happy to announce that last summer we did a major renovation and upgrade to the lodge. We have a beautiful new and larger dining area. The kitchen is all new and bigger. There will be only two guests to a room now. And we hope to have a much better boot drying system ready. I'm tired, but happy with the results.

Please have a look around. The calendar is usually quite accurate, but please contact us if the week you want is full. The 2023 season is fully booked, with some spaces open in January (6-13) and April (31 March to 7 April) and we are taking bookings for 2024. There are sometimes openings, and things can change.  Watch the video, send us a message, and soon we may be skiing or climbing together. The mountains are always waiting.

Covid updates

No, Covid is not done with us. Here is how we are trying to keep all of us - you the guests, us the staff - safe while having a great time in the mountains.

We expect everyone who comes to the lodge to be fully vaccinated. However, we do not require testing any more.

Canada no longer requires proof of vaccination, tests, or quarantining when you cross the border. I do ask that you are vaccinated.

Winter 2022/ 2023

The upcoming season is fully booked, with a few spaces open from 6 to 13 January and 31 March to 7 April. Please write to find out where the remaining few spots are.

Winter 2024

It does feel strange to book so far into the future, but that is what we are doing now. There is still quite a bit open, but the bookings are coming in. Please write or call to secure your spot.
