Tsetzi Lake (Pan Phillips) Airport – Chilcotin Backcountry Airstrip

Pan Phillips was a cowboy who, with Rich Hobson, founded the Home Ranch. Tsetzi Lake, I believe, was the site of the Home Ranch, and boasts an grass strip. There is a resort there operated by Phillips’ son Robbie and his wife Linda. If you’re looking for a cool backcountry airstrip to fly to, here’s one to check out.
