Winter cabin rentals are a wilderness stewardship opportunity
Fall is here and that means our pack trip season has wrapped up for another year. Now our focus is on accommodation rentals. So if you’re looking for a mountain cabin for ski-touring or a ranch cabin for a wilderness getaway, we have plenty of opportunities for you.
For our international clients, the Canadian government recently announced that as of October 1st, anyone entering Canada will no longer be required to be vaccinated against COVID-19. All other border restrictions are also being lifted meaning travel to Canada is now much easier. We recommend booking your trip to the Chilcotin Ark before everything gets booked up.
Our Eldorado and Brett Creek Camps are the perfect base for a ski-touring adventure. Both cabins are fully stocked with firewood, propane and cooking equipment, you just need to bring your food and personal gear meaning you can travel light. Along the way, you have the opportunity to see wildlife such as mountain goats, mule deer and California Bighorn sheep. You can make your stewardship contribution to the area and track wildlife on our wildlife sightings forms
Wildlife Tracking and Conservation Ranch-Based Trips
Another great way to contribute to conservation is on one of our wildlife tracking and conservation trips, either ranch or camp based. We have just finished up two ranch-based trips where our guests learned to identify the tracks of different species, recorded wildlife sightings and explored the area by truck, foot and horse
Why the Chilcotin Ark?

3. All 3 alpine biogeoclimatic zones of BC meet in the Chilcotin Ark
4. Influenced by 3 major climate regimes
5. 11 out of 29 big game species of North America
6. Home of one of the most isolated wild horse populations in North America
7. 4 of the major river systems in BC have their source in the Chilcotin Ark
8. Home of the healthiest white bark pine population in Canada
9. Most northerly extension of montane grassland in North America
10. Largest water storage in western North America
Only the people who are aware of the virtues of the Chilcotin Ark have the opportunity to serve as stewards of this internationally ecologically important place and contribute to something larger than themselves long into the future.
