Overall, down days in heli skiing occur relatively seldom. More often, you may be lodge bound while the storm dumps that afternoons powder that you’ll be enjoying when you finally get out for a run or two at the end of the day. With our snowcat backup we’ll have you skiing first thing while the storm rages in our fleet of snowcats and when the weather clears you can finish the day off with those couple of heli runs.
On average we experience less than one full day per week where we are unable to heli ski. We don’t need catskiing backup, but it sure is nice to ski a full day while the storm is dumping.
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 all know that Mother Nature is always in charge and that extreme weather could still keep us lodge bound, but we have upped the odds that you will get to ski every day of your trip with our Cat Skiing Backup.
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 into our heli skiing terrain. When the snowfall on our remote mountain peaks is too heavy for our helicopters to fly to those elevations, you can still ski and ride most days 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.
