First Nations Heli Ski Zone

Location – 36km NW of Yellow Cedar Lodge

In this week’s post, we want to share with you our First Nations heli skiing zone. The First Nations is a very, very cool place for alpine heli skiing here in British Columbia, Canada.

Impressive granite walls, glacier skiing, and waterfalls abound in the First Nations heli skiing zone. This is a beautifully rugged area of BC with impressive mountain peaks backing onto the world’s only Grizzly Bear Sanctuary – definitely a cool place to experience.

Each year, our heli skiing experts here at Northern Escape welcome guests from around the world. Many are repeat clients who come from the United States, the UK, and from many parts of Europe. They love our huge terrain, our easy access, our deep powder, our small group heli skiing packages, and especially the variety within our 12 heli skiing zones!

Come Experience the First Nations Heli Skiing Zone

In 2019, we celebrate a milestone – 15 years offering exceptional heli skiing packages in Canada and operating one of the world’s largest heli ski terrains (5,500 sq. km). As part of the celebration, we’ve started construction on a new Lake Front Heli Skiing Lodge near Terrace, BC (due to open in 2020).

We offer three small group heli skiing packages including our Classic, Elite, and Private heli skiing package with snow cat skiing backup in our Catland zone.

Check out our Bookings page for available dates and book a 3-day, 4-day, 5-day, or 7-day heli skiing trip in Canada at Northern Escape Heli Skiing! We encourage you to book early to ensure your preferred heli skiing dates.
