It's big. Much of it is alpine and glaciated. It appeals to stronger skiers.

A backcountry lodge in Canada that offers all the charm of a European mountain hut - all to yourself!

Burnie Glacier Chalet

This mountain refuge was built by many friends in 2001. It is on the Kwees house territory of the Tsayu clan of the Wet'suwet'en, who graciously gave us permission to build and operate. Everything had to fly: the wood beams and timbers, the concrete, the windows, the furniture, the roofing, everything down to the last nail. The nearest road is 20 km and two mountain ridges away. The lodge sleeps ten guests, two guides, and one cook. It is heated with wood and has running water and a small hydro turbine fed by a nearby mountain spring. It is your home away from home, in the mountains.

 
 

Christoph and Sean did an amazing job of always finding perfect lines for us. Burnie Chalet is in an amazing location with fantastic scenery and ski terrain. Wonderful touring with the best skiing of my life.
