Wild West Heli Ski Zone

Location – 30km NW of Yellow Cedar Lodge

Let’s take a closer look at our Wild West heli skiing zone. This is the fifth installment from our series of blog posts showcasing our 12 exceptional heli skiing areas.

Located near Terrace B.C.,in beautiful British Columbia, Canada, our heli skiing terrain has over 5,500 sq. km of incomparable alpine, glacier, and tree skiing.

Our Wild West heli ski zone is a favorite for many of our international guests who come to heli ski in Canada for the lightest, deepest powder ever!


Wild West is in big alpine and glacier heli skiing country. Northern Escape Heli Skiing guides tend to save the Wild West heli ski zone for bluebird skiing at its best! Here, on bright sunny days, you’ll enjoy amazing alpine skiing with even more amazing mountain top back drops.
