The Ultimate Canadian Winter Staycation

Since 2004, Northern Escape Heli Skiing has been renowned as one of the world’s premier, small-group heliski operations. Our location in BC’s Skeena Range, with its far northern latitude and proximity to Pacific storms, produces one of the planet’s deepest, driest and most reliable snowpacks. It has often been called the Hokkaido of Canada. The terrain here is big and wild: alpine bowls, steep couloirs, open glaciers and epic tree skiing. Our new base, built in 2019, is one of the most comfortable boutique ski lodges in the business.

But since covid has struck, and borders have closed, we made the decision to open this exclusive resort to private groups of Canadian guests only in 2021, with heli skiing at prices locals can afford. If heliskiing has been on your bucket list, now’s the time to go!

We invite you to come experience a once-in-a-lifetime heli skiing adventure with Northern Escape this winter! 

Small Group Heli-skiing

Your Private Heli Skiing Adventure

Bring your bubble and experience powder skiing at its best. Our 5,500 sq kms of terrain offers something for the strong intermediate resort skier, all the way to expert. Just you and 4 friends or family members will have your own helicopter for the day with a private ski guide and powder skis included. All bookings for 2021 include Unlimited Vertical at no extra cost. On days when the storms are dumping and the helicopters can’t fly, our snowcat backup will still get you out skiing. And with a La Niña in the forecast, and all-inclusive rates starting at just $1199 per day, this could be the ultimate winter adventure. 

Heli Skiing Safety

Our expert guides have the highest level of certifications in the industry from ACMG, CSGA and IFMGA. Their experience with the terrain and knowledge of the snowpack is unparalleled. All heliski guests will be supplied with the latest avalanche safety gear, including transceivers and airbag backpacks and will be instructed on how to use them. Learn more about our avalanche safety.

Our covid safety procedures meet or exceed BC’s provincial health protocols. These include no mixing of groups, daily health checks and enhanced cleaning procedures. For 2021, we will ONLY BE ACCEPTING PRIVATE GROUP BOOKINGS. Learn more about our covid safety procedures. 

BC’s Most Accessible Heli Skiing

Most heliski operations require you to fly somewhere THEN drive 4-7 hours to reach their lodge. Not Northern Escape. Getting here is easy. Terrace, BC, is our meeting point and is served by multiple daily direct flights from Vancouver. The 90-min flight is less time than it takes to drive from Vancouver to Whistler. We’ll meet you at the Terrace Airport and it’s a quick shuttle and scenic helicopter flight directly to the lodge’s doorstep.

Great Heliskiing, DEEEP Powder, Huge Terrain, Wicked tree skiing, Awesome food.”

Bernt B, Norway

“The terrain is immense and access is easy. There are other places with great terrain, but you need a 7hr bus ride to get there.”

Mike K, Colorado

The helicopters are small and fast and you can have the place to yourself. I’ve been 15 times.”
