About the BLBCA

Vision & Mission

The Backcountry Lodges of British Columbia Association (BLBCA) is a member directed association comprised of representatives from 29 privately owned lodge operations located throughout the major mountain ranges of British Columbia, Canada.

BLBCA lodges offer access to a wide range of self-propelled, multi-season recreational activities in the remarkable wilderness areas of BC.

The BLBCA was created in 2004 to unify, represent and support member lodge owners and operators in the areas of marketing, operations, government regulations and responsible tourism (including safety and the environment).

“The Association is committed to supporting member lodges in maintaining the environment and leaving as small a footprint as possible while providing our guests the opportunity to enjoy the unparalleled British Columbia backcountry.”
