Guide to booking your heli ski vacation with Northern Escape Heli Skiing:

Skier in chest deep powder.1) Which month should you choose?
We get that question often and the answer is very simple: every month is the perfect month to go heli skiing. Mother nature is unpredictable and we take what we can get but to help you understand the average kind of weather we get here, we have come up with a brief description: January tends to be the stormiest and the deepest. We’ll spend about 70% of the time in the trees and 30% in the alpine. February tends to stabilize some, the skiing and riding is still quite deep and we spend about a 50/50 split between trees and alpine. March starts to see the weather stabilize even more. The skiing is deep, but just a little more settled. We tend to spend about 70% of the time in the alpine and 30% in the trees at this time.

2) Which package and how many days should I book?

We ran this package last year and our guests had a blast. The snow at this time of the year is usually light dry fluffy powder not to mention DEEP, as the storms blast the coast mountains.

From flute glasses to fat skis, ring in the new year slipping on our exclusive champagne powder.

We expect to see another 1 to 2 meters (3 to 6 feet) more over the next several days. Read more
