Northern British Columbia on the Alaskan Coast is where two of the amazing private heli ski trips we have selected for you are located. The area British Columbia is the biggest and greatest heli ski destination in Canada with over 9,500km² of terrain to explore. Epic snowfall with over 25 metres a season falling and with minimal down time due to consistent weather conditions.
These are remote, amazing, incredible destinations.
Bell 2 Lodge
Perfect for groups of four to ten skiers this is the ultimate Canadian heli skiing experience. With one helicopter dedicated for your exclusive use you will have the luxury of 100% freedom and flexibility to ski or snowboard at your own pace and explore deep into the vast wilderness of the ‘Great White North’. All helicopter trips at Bell 2 Lodge include an unlimited amount of vertical, meaning you can ski as much as you like and you will never be charged extra.
The skiing at Ripley Creek is rugged, raw and amazingly spectacular. As the mountain guides here will tell you, “You pay for the skiing, not the fancy extras”. With massive glacial runs and extensive tree skiing and a snowfall record that is so frequent and so intense it will bury a car in hours, you get a real sense of remoteness and “wilderness skiing”. Regular comments from frequent visitors tell us that you don’t get this feeling of remoteness with any other heli operators in the region. The full focus really is on the quality of the skiing, the amazing snow and this rugged, beautifully wild landscape.
As one regular noted “Stewart is an old gold mining town on the boarder of Alaska, where you are more likely to see bears and men with guns on the street then you are any other skiers or boarders. It is definitely not Courchevel.”
Long glacial runs, many over 2000m vertical, allow for endless powder turns and incredible, untracked descents.
The season runs from December to April.
