Amazing staff, food, lodge and terrain. The snow had been challenging this year and Gavin and his team worked their butts off to find us the best stuff! People make a business and these folks were amazing, see you all again soon

Best ski trip of my life!! I have skied in many different places and this was my second heli skiing trip. From the moment we arrived at the airport and the helicopter was waiting for us to take us on the 15 minute flight to our lodge(don't overlook this key feature as many places you have to drive 2-3 hours to get to your lodge), to the food, the guides (Gavin and Ben were fantastic) and of course the skiing, it was perfect. The amount of terrain, the option for cat skiing on a no fly day (only happened one day) and the sheer desire of the guides to get us flying and maximize our vertical (37,500 one day) it was a once in a lifetime experience that I cannot wait to do again....

This was my second trip to Northern Escape heli skiing. Both were spectacular. The staff really pays attention to details including safety. Food and accommodation are first class. They are always working to give you access to good snow and terrain as well as keeping you safe in a world class mountain environment. I'm already looking forward to my next trip.....might look into a seat availability before this winter is over.

One of our favorite family trips of all time. The Northern Escape team was incredible, and the early season snow was simply epic. Never in my life have I skied so many back to back lines of perfectly soft, fluffy, and untouched snow. The lodge was beautiful and simple, providing everything one might need after a full day of skiing. We enjoyed the relaxing apres evenings full of wine, snacks, hot tubbing, and great company. The chefs were incredible, and we looked forward to every meal - including our gourmet lunch on the slopes! Many thanks to Benny, John, Troy, and the rest of the staff for an unforgettable trip from start to finish. Some of the best ski lines of my life, and in the best company. An incomparable experience. We will be back!!

My son and I had an incredible experience with Northern Escape Heli Skiing. It was the best skiing of our lives, and we ski a lot. Our guides - Gavin and Troy were truly exceptional in every respect and made the week over the top enjoyable. Our pilot, Mark, was also exceptional. The terrain was incredible and our guides & pilot team did everything possible to ensure we accessed the best terrain on each day. The new lodge is gorgeous and it is very evident that the planning and management team obsess over the details. Food was amazing. Every day we returned to the lodge with huge grins and were immediately greeted with a roaring fireplace, amazing aromas from the kitchen, and a smiling bar tender. Morning stretch/yoga session and massage therapist made it even more special. Cannot recommend highly enough. Will definitely be back and will strongly recommend to everyone in our network. The small group experience is also a huge differentiator.
