South Shore Heli Ski Zone

Location – 35km SW of Yellow Cedar Lodge

In this fourth installment highlighting our 12 unique heli skiing areas here in beautiful British Columbia, Canada, we will take a closer look at our South Shore heli skiing zone.

Northern Escape Heli Skiing currently operates a tenure of over 5,500 sq. km of heli skiing terrain. Each year we welcome guests from all over the world who travel here specifically to heli ski in Canada.

While our North Shore zone features 60% alpine skiing, our South Shore heli skiing zone offers up to 70% tree skiing. South Shore is located North West of Kitimat, British Columbia, at the head of the Douglas Channel and in the far Southern reaches of the NEH tenure. The South Shore heli skiing region offers a mixture of tree skiing and alpine terrain with Pacific Ocean views and a deep, powdery maritime snowpack.
