Communication Is Key

Here at Northern Escape Heli Skiing in British Columbia Canada, safety is our highest priority. Next to small group heli skiing with low “guest to guide” ratios, two-way “radio communication” is paramount. When it comes to prevention, response, and safety, we rely heavily on our heli ski radio system to provide clear, effective two-way communication. To that end, we’ve developed a highly efficient and very reliable heli ski radio communications system.

Have you ever wondered how our communication radios have such a large range?

It all has to do with a whole network of devices spread out all over our vast heli skiing terrain. It takes a lot of logistics to make a heli ski day happen and at the heart of it all is our heli ski radio communications system.
