The ultimate backcountry experience in the mountains of northwestern BC.

Burnie Glacier Chalet is easy to get to - leave Vancouver in the morning and ski in the afternoon!

When the powder is super deep, we take to the trees!

The view is beyond anything you've ever seen.

Backcountry Skiing

The Howson Range is big, remote, and has challenging terrain. It is a great place for stronger skiers. That said, we make sure that everybody who comes gets to ski at their level. We are two guides and can, for example, split the group when some guests want to keep charging and others want to head down to beer, snacks and sauna. Our trips tend to be relatively long. There is a lot of big alpine terrain, but also excellent tree skiing for the storm days (all that snow and ice has to come from somewhere). We are proud to have guests that have skied with us for 15 years. And we are equally happy when you come for the first time - because you'll be back.

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.
