Skeena Heliskiing

Skeena Heliskiing was founded in 2004 and has access to one of the largest heli skiing areas in the world with an area of 9,525 km2.

The Skeena Mountain range has a huge diversity of terrain, from the high vertical slopes with steeps to powder bowls with pillows and chutes. Heli skiing doesn’t stop during bad weather with plenty of tree skiing and an abundance of sweeping glades. Skeena’s geographical location and diversity of terrain allows us to consistently enjoy one of the lowest number of down days in the industry.

Air Canada has direct flights from Vancouver to Terrace, which is a 2hr 15min drive via our shuttle van to Bear Claw Lodge. If you prefer, it is possible to book a helicopter transfer from Terrace for a spectacular flight that only takes 40 minutes. See our Location page for more detailed info on travel logistics.

Bear Claw Lodge offers our clients very exclusive, personal and high quality accommodation, and is only 6 minutes by helicopter to your first runs. We cater to a maximum of 12 guests per week, either looked after as 3 groups of 4 or 2 groups of 4 and a private group.

We use B2 helicopters as they allow us to access the best of our terrain and better cater to our smaller groups.

Our highly experienced guides are UIAGM or ACMG/CSGA certified and and our helicopter pilots have many hours mountain flying experience.Our staff  are there to ensure your safety whilst leading your group or flying you from run to run.

We look forward to welcoming you (back!) to Skeena for some great skiing.
