October 26, 2022

Premier Boutique Heli Skiing Operator Sets the Bar Higher with Its New Ultra Luxe Private Heli Ski Package

TERRACE, B.C., /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ Northern Escape Heli Skiing (NEH)  has created a new ‘Best of the Best’ trip to push the envelope on what a luxury heli ski adventure can be. Based out of the posh new 6500 sq ft Skeena River Ranchon a private estate, the tour uses the lightning-fast Agusta Koala helicopter (aka flying Ferrari), to whisk guests to exclusive, deep powder terrain in the Skeena Mountains near the Alaskan Panhandle. Private ACMG ski guides, Red Seal Chef, private bar, private massage therapist, exclusive snowcat backup for storm days and Unlimited Vertical skiing are all included.

“We custom designed this trip to be the best of the best. The best helicopter, the best lodging, the best terrain and all for a group of just 4-5 skiers,’” says Northern Escape President, John Forrest.

When guests arrive at the Northwest Regional Airport in Terrace, B.C. they are greeted by a concierge and whisked away to their luxurious private lodge via helicopter. After a short 10 minute flight, guests arrive to meet their private staff who will welcome them with champagne and appies. The lodge offers comfort and luxury amongst the wilderness. It’s the perfect respite after a day of backcountry skiing in the Skeena Mountains.

“The private package is a very exclusive experience,” says Forrest. “The lodge is one of the nicest in the industry. The service provided by the staff is the best in the industry by far.”

For the affluent traveler who loves adventure, this package offers a customized ski experience like no other. Whether they want steep alpine skiing or mellow terrain, NEH will ensure guests have the exact kind of ski experience they desire. The snowcat backup ensures not a day is wasted by taking guests out skiing  when it’s too stormy for helicopters to fly.

“We’ve got one of the largest heli ski areas in the world,” says Forrest.  “We have everything you could want.”

A 7-day Private Heli Ski Package costs CAD139,999 (USD106,350) and accommodates 4-5 people.
