Heli Skiing with Cat Skiing backup ensures you ski every day. If you like to ski and snowboard in deep powder, you have found the right place.
It snows in North Western British Columbia, a lot! This means a lot of powder skiing, and occasionally, some storm riding as well. Most of the time our Helicopter can fly through the snow to the goods, but sometimes it comes down too hard. For a lot of Heliski operations, this means siting in the lodge and watching the snow fall. Not at Northern Escape. We made the down day obsolete with a cat ski operation of over 7000 acres of amazing terrain for exclusive use for our heli ski guests on days we cannot fly.
The Cat Skiing operation's sole mission is to eliminate the down day. We maintain over 40 kilometers of Cat roads and our three Cats are always ready to go.
The operation is seamless. If the weather comes in during the day, we move to the Cat terrain and if it clears up, we switch back to heli. Heli Skiing with Cat Skiing back up ensures you will ski a full day every day.
At night we love our lodge, but the days are for skiing. With zero down days, why take a chance anywhere else?
