Skeena Heli Skiing

Why Heli-Skiing In Canada With Us?

• Access to one of the largest heli skiing areas in North America, spanning over 2.35 million acres (or 9,525 km2)! That is 91 times the size of Les Trois Vallées, and for our American friends, it would take 443 Vails to fit into 2.3 million acres....all for just a maximum of 12 guests a week!
Unlimited Vertical on most packages, and for the Private Helicopter package, we include 11 hours of flying, one of the highest in the industry
Huge diversity in terrain, varying difficulty and includes trees, glades, couloirs, bowls and alpine with stunning views
• Only 6 minutes flying time to your first runs
Small and flexible group operation of 2-3 groups of 4 people in an A-Star B2 helicopter
Our location in northern BC ensures cooler temperatures, while being inland results in more powdery snow, yet we are not too far away from the coast, resulting in huge amounts of snow
Easy to get to from Vancouver
One of the lowest number of down-days in the heli ski industry
Exceptional quality of accommodation and meals at Bear Claw Lodge
• A max of 12 guests per week at the lodge
• We offer Private packages with, or without, exclusive use of the entire Bear Claw Lodge, on request

Guaranteed 2 Group Unlimited Vertical Package

The Guaranteed package is the same as the Classic Unlimited Vertical program with 1 major difference: there are only 2 groups of 4 people using the helicopter!

-  Small Groups - only 2 groups of 4 people per A-Star B2 helicopter! This makes for even less waiting between runs! And it gets you into the mountains sooner to start the ski day

Private Helicopter Package
