Base Camp

Welcome to Base Camp

It was our goal to provide something new to heli skiing, a heli skiing package that is truly a wilderness experience.

Taking all the knowledge and experience we have gained from our ten years of operation in the Skeena Mountains and our combined knowledge of mountaineering, we have created a heli skiing expedition that is a form of more "glamorous" camping or affectionately know to us as “Glamping”.

We are super excited about this new experience on offer. It is most certainly a beautiful wilderness experience and will be a highlight to those with a sense of adventure who are seeking something different.

Location

Base Camp is located in the Kuldo Valley,  580 meters above sea level in the heart of the heli skiing tenure. Its location is fly-in and fly-out only, no other access other than with the helicopters. It is an 12 min flight from Bear Claw Lodge.

The first runs are visible from the base camp and less than a 1 minute flight time away.

One of the main reasons we chose this site is that this is one of the best all-weather locations we have.  It provides the best skiing and flying options, even in poor weather.
