Location – 20km SW of Yellow Cedar Lodge

Northern Escape’s heli skiing terrain covers over 5,500 sq. km near Terrace in British Columbia, Canada. Within our tenure, we operate 12 amazing heli skiing zones. In this third blog post highlighting our unique heli skiing areas, we will take a closer look at our North Shore heli skiing zone.

The North Shore heli ski zone is a favorite of many of our heli ski guides. Many of the big East-facing alpine ski runs offer consistent fall lines, glorious morning light, and exceptional variety for heli skiing or heli boarding. The North Shore heli skiing zone is home to the longest run in our Northern Escape Heli Skiing tenure.
