About the BLBCA

Description of the BLBCA

Due to their remoteness, lodge access is mechanized in the winter (mostly by helicopter). In the summer several lodges are accessible by hiking. Once at the lodge, all activities are non-mechanized, falling in line with our commitment to leave as small a footprint as possible.

All lodges are located in mountainous regions of British Columbia, generally situated at or above treeline in what is generally referred to as the “alpine”.

BLBCA Mission

To offer adventurers the most extensive backcountry accommodation network in Canada and to provide a forum for communication and collaboration between member lodges.

BLBCA Vision

To enable Association lodges to touch the lives of guests with awe-inspiring adventures throughout British Columbia’s inimitable backcountry.
