The vision and values at Ice Creek Lodge are its fundamental roots. Firstly, Ice Creek Lodge respects the unceded territory of the Indigenous Peoples and the land that is shared. The values at Ice Creek Lodge are also to build on providing a safe and ideal mountain experience as well.
We value the environment around Ice Creek Lodge. Lowering our footprint by providing responsible access to our non-mechanized lodge is a priority. Also, our hike in-and-out philosophy, composting systems, and protecting the water are just some of the ways we demonstrate care for our environment.
We value our youth, community, and the rights of the Indigenous Peoples. With a youth work program, Ice Creek Lodge is able to build and maintain trails. Ice Creek Lodge also supports a local school’s outdoor wilderness program through donations and through work experience. We strive to become better allies of the Indigenous community.

Safety and Risk
In order to help you be aware of the level of risk associated with the specific backcountry activity you are participating in, we encourage you to review the “Assumption or Risks” portion on the Winter Waiver and Summer Waiver. This will allow you to be prepared, have peace of mind and make your trip as memorable as possible.
Understanding risk is vital for recreating responsibly in BC’s Backcountry. Backcountry adventures in BC can include activities that at times may have a higher-than-normal element of risk. Once you venture into the backcountry you are entering an uncontrolled environment. BLBCA member lodges do their utmost to allow you to enjoy an exhilarating yet safe experience.
Guided trips are led by highly-trained, professionally-certified members of the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides. Safety always comes first, BLBCA member organizations strive to ensure it is a key component of any backcountry experience.
Genuine human connection transforms the clients into the family. Our clients choose to return year after year because, like us, they know: when you’re at Ice Creek Lodge, you’re exactly where you need to be.
