Picture this… Deep Powder, great friends and a fireworks display that will knock your socks off! Ring in the New Year in style!

New Years fireworks at Yellow Cedar Lodge.

That is what we have planned for our New Year’s Eve Ski package at the Yellow Cedar Lodge. Take your pick from a 3, 4 or 5 day Classic Heli-Ski package that all end on new year’s day. 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.
