Backcountry Mountaineering Camp

Backcountry Mountaineering Camp (BMC)

Every year, we choose a new location somewhere in the mountains of British Columbia and establish a comfortable alpine basecamp with access to spectacular mountaineering.

Each summer, the BMC offers week-long, fully guided and catered backcountry mountaineering trips in a different, helicopter accessed, basecamp location somewhere in BC. Low guest to guide ratios, small and intimate camp size, gourmet food, comfortable camp accommodation and amazing staff are the hallmarks of the BMC. Founded and built by Brad Harrison, the BMC continues to provide adventurous people with access to some of the most remote and spectacular wilderness mountain areas in Beautiful British Columbia. No crowds, no logistics, just awesome alpine climbing and hiking, great food and mind-blowing scenery.
