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.

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!

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

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 evrybody 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 dwon 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.

Awesome week – the most fun educational experience I’ve had. Unbelievable terrain – huge! Great options from alpine to perfect glades. The sauna is truly a highlight and a must at the end of the day. Thanks to Monika and Dave for feeding us like kings each and every day. Christoph gave us the goods and a tonne of knowledge. I’ll be back! Thanks Christoph.
