Multilingual Ski Guides
Nearly 50% of our current Northern Escape guests join us from outside North America with the majority of international heli skiing guests coming from European homelands like: Norway, The United Kingdom, Germany, France, Austria, Switzerland, and Italy.
Although most of our heli skiing guides are Canadian, in addition to English, many of them speak several languages including, Norwegian, French, and German.
Our Koala Helicopter, manufactured by Agusta Helicopters, is from Italy, and our Ullr Outdoor Bar, very popular for après ski, is named for the Norwegian God of Snow – Ullr.
Northern Escape Heli Skiing Location
With our heli skiing location in the remote Northwest corner of British Columbia, Canada, we operate on Pacific Standard Time, UTC – 8 hours. December and early January offer some of our shortest days of the winter ski season but even still, we average over 8 hours per day of heli skiing time (or cat skiing, depending on weather conditions).
By mid ski season in British Columbia, the days are getting much longer and our usual day begins at 08:45 with the first group returning back to the ski lodge no later than 17:00 each day.
