COAST MOUNTAINS

In order to respect the sanctity of secret ski shacks, we’ll focus on establishments which are public and or affiliated with an organization such as Backcountry Lodges of BC. If you are looking for some route beta in the Coast Mountains check out our Coast Mountain Routes page here.

If you’d like to tell us (and backcountryskiingcanada.com readers) about your hut/cabin/shelter, or ones of which you are aware, please check out the new routes submission area or feel free to contact us with an email.

Backcountry skiing is an inherently dangerous activity that requires experience and knowledge to travel safely. Any of the routes on this site may be dangerous depending on conditions.

Burnie Glacier Chalet BURNIE GLACIER CHALET
Phone: 250.847.3351
Location: Coast Mountains
Access: Heli or ski in winter, hike in summer
Seasons: Winter (Dec - May), Summer (July - Sept)
Accommodation: 11 (double, triple, quad)
Amenities: dyring area, electricity, equipment rental, maps, satellite, radio or cell service, sauna, wood heat

What's different about Burnie Glacier Chalet? Being the most northwest of all lodges in B.C., big stable snow packs are the norm from December to May. But we are also the easiest to reach: fly into Smithers and forget about rental cars and long drives – the heli base is just across town. The terrain appeals to stronger skiers with many demanding, glaciated lines, rugged peaks and excellent tree skiing for stormy days. Introductory courses, advanced avalanche training and professional courses are offered. Plus, there’s solar electricity, a wood fired sauna, wonderful food and IFMGA Mountain Guide Christoph Dietzfelbinger to lead the way.

Stay at Callaghan Lodge (1,370 metres, 4,500 ft), an easy-access inn boasting spectacular scenery, epic snow, comfortable lodging, delicious meals and friendly hospitality. Come for a day, a night, or stay all week! Nightly all inclusive packages available.

 

“The overnight lodge is surrounded on three sides by glaciated summits and offers everything from high alpine bowls and glacier skiing to glades, pillow drops and gently rolling terrain. The closest runs drop 750m on North facing slopes that terminate less than a half-kilometer from the lodge. Look beyond weekend packages. There is easily enough terrain here to keep a keen group of skiers busy for a week.”     ~ John Baldwin “Exploring the Coast Mountains on Skis”
