With the development of our Cat Skiing Backup area and one of the world’s largest helicopter skiing locations, we have made every effort to ensure you have the best skiing and riding experience possible! Although we know that Mother Nature is always in charge, we have upped the odds that you will get to ski every day of your trip.
Northern Escape’s 5,500 sq. kilometer (3420 sq. mile) heli skiing terrain near Terrace, in the remote Northwest of British Columbia, Canada, is renowned for providing one of the deepest, most reliable, snow-packs on the planet. It is no secret that all that deep fluffy powder doesn’t fall from blue skies. It snows up here, and it is Deeper Up Here!
We get a lot of snow up here and sometimes the conditions can make it challenging to fly. When the snowfall on our remote mountain peaks is too heavy for our helicopters to fly safely, you can almost always still ski thanks to our Cat Skiing Backup program. All Northern Escape heli skiing packages include a reserved seat in snowcats that are always ready and standing by.
Over the season, our seven day packages average six and a half days of heli skiing and one half day in our Cat Skiing Backup program each week. Check out the Unlimited Vertical Heli Skiing Option as unlimited vertical is nice to have when you ski/ride nearly every day of your package.
