Heli Ski Safety – #1 Priority

At Northern Escape Heli Skiing our highest priority is to provide you with a safe and enjoyable Canadian heli skiing experience. Whether you are heli skiing, boarding, or cat skiing, you will be equipped with the latest, state-of-the-art heli ski safety gear and accompanied by our certified heli ski guides. They absolutely love to ski and ride and take great pride in showing you their favorite alpine powder stashes.

Small Group Heli Skiing

Seldom is less actually more, unless you’re talking about the number of skiers or snowboarders in your group. The exclusivity of small group heli skiing offers you more flexibility to ski at your own pace as you choose and move through our varied ski terrain.

Getting Here is Easy

Although the location of Northern Escape Heli Skiing in northwest BC, Canada is remote, we are easily accessible and serviced by several daily direct flights from Vancouver International Airport to Terrace Regional Airport. With our mountain ski lodges only a 20-minute drive from Terrace airport, this direct access will save you additional travel time and expense as well as allow you to ski a FULL day every day of your package – including your day of departure.

Unlimited Vertical Option

Northern Escape Heli Skiing offers the industry’s leading vertical guarantee. With the addition of the Unlimited Vertical Option to either the Classic or Elite ski package, you get unlimited helicopter skiing or boarding AND your minimum vertical guarantee is increased.

Snowcat Backup

Everyone imagines those Bluebird days with deep untouched champagne powder. However, all that snow must come from somewhere and when it’s snowing too heavily to fly a helicopter safely to the mountain peaks, we smoothly transition to our Snowcat Skiing Backup. All of our Helicopter Ski Packages include a reserved seat in one of our three Snowcats that are always ready and standing by.

Although down days occur relatively seldom, we average less than one down day per week, having our Snowcat Backup allows us to ski a full day, every day, in all but the very worst of weather.

Huge BC Ski Terrain

Northern Escape Heli Skiing operates in 5,500 square Kilometers (3418 sq. miles) of helicopter skiing and boarding terrain. When combined with the deepest and driest powder this offers the ultimate skiing and riding experience. Ski runs often begin high in the alpine bowls that feature the deepest powder imaginable, ending with tree skiing down long descents through old growth forests to the valley floor.
