Heli Skiing and Boarding Terrain
Big Mountains and Deep Powder
Our location midway between Central BC and Alaska offers the best of both worlds. Our far north latitude and proximity to powerful Pacific storms brings plenty of powder to our mountains, more than just about anywhere else on the planet. And unlike further north, we have terrific tree skiing that we can access in all weather, thanks to our snowcat skiing backup. Our alpine zones feature immense glaciers, deep bowls and steep couloirs. Many of our ski runs are over 2,000 vertical meters (over a vertical mile) from high mountain peaks to valley bottoms of old growth cedar forests with deep pillows. The Skeena and Kitimat Mountain Ranges offer wild, big mountain adventure skiing and boarding at their finest.
At Northern Escape, we have over 300 established skiing and boarding runs in 12 different heli ski zones. Our area is so big, we’re always finding new lines to ride. First descents (with naming rights) are common in such a vast, unexplored wilderness. Our big mountain ski terrain attracts weekend warriors and professional skiers and snowboarders alike and has been featured in top ski journals and in videos by the likes of Matchstick Productions.
