Just a flat spot on the Barnard Glacier - (I made an ICAO BARN for the mfc system to recognize the Glacier location): It is defined as

Barnard Glacier   
ICAO (BARN)   
Lat-N61° 06' 08" x Long-W141° 46' 25"               
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barnard_Glacier)

The FP and skyvector maps will hopefully show the waypoints. Some of these locations are very hard as they are not valid airstrips or registered airports that your sim easily recognizes but in the bush can be any misc type location, like this one which is just a glacier that gives ample room to land on.

Barnard Glacier   mapped as below - not a very detailed map view but the glacier location can be seen.

Hope this helps. If you don't see it, no worries it's just a glacier surface.

Ok.. (Also just remember that leg 10 bid not generate a visible bid, but it's there. Bid it as usual, then file a charter for the flight using your own tour flight# (which is MFC44101). Then after filing that charter, voila Leg 11 bid and on wards should work np.

Something went wrong.  I bid on flight 10 and then flew it as a charter with my MFC44101 flight number.  Pirep accepted but unable to move on to flight 11.  Won't let me select flight 11 as a bid,

BARN needs to be added to flight plan for mfc00291. It is blank.

Ok Steve see. "Barnard Glacier" name is present but the waypoint/ICAO didn't populate. Fixed. (Reupped the MFC0025 DL with the updated FP).

Thanks Steve.
