About Northern Escape Heli Skiing
We’re a boutique, small-group heliski operation in Northern BC’s Skeena Range. Renowned for having one of the deepest, most reliable snowpacks on the planet, the terrain here is big and wild: alpine bowls, steep chutes and epic tree skiing. Unlimited vertical option, snowcat backup and luxe new mountain lodge. Easy access from Vancouver-Terrace. New for 2021 is cat skiing for our Canadian guests.

What an incredibly well kept secret. Super friendly staff, a wonderful lodge experience, And then we went Skiing... I would argue that it doesn't get much better than BC skiing, and further, I don't think anywhere else in the world get the volume and quality of snow that terrace does. If those are things that sound good to you, don't miss this opportunity

Northern Escape is the best heli-skiing in the world. Having experienced multiple heli operations, including Northern Escape 6 times now, the operation run by John Forrest and his talented team is unparalleled and gets better and better every year. The setting, private lodge, food (!), unparalleled terrain (glacier/trees/couloirs, vertical and expanse), coupled with a snowcat backup on days of inclement weather, makes Northern Escape the best in the business, hands down. This is a bucket list experience.

The experience that Northern Escape Heli-Skiing has curated is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure that can be revisited every year. Their tenure is unmatched in both size and quality and Terrace consistently receives the best snow in the world (it’s still a bit of a secret). The new heli-access lodge is perched on the shore of a lake which provides remarkable raw views of the Canadian north. Northern Escape has Truly considered every variable, for example in case the weather is variable they have designed and constructed a full-time Cat-skiing back up tenure that is as big as Whistler blackcomb. I’ve been privileged to ski with John, Gavin and many others at NE Heli for years and they are certainly the most experienced and safest guides in Canada, if not the world. Every safety precaution is taken and we all go through avalanche safety training and avalanche pack training prior to any skiing. Having been to many other places in the world, I can say with confidence that they take everything in to consideration which allows the guests to simply enjoy. The lodge experience is as good as the skiing with Sam at the bar making delicious caesars, and Kyle in the kitchen crafting meals that are honesty works of art. Chad always ensures that everyone is kitted out with the best hardware so you don’t need to worry about anything. The day I leave Northern Escape is always the day I look forward to next year. Thank you to everyone at Northern Escape!!!

Thanks Dave, It's so much fun to have you and your group join us each year. I'm working on your Heli Fishing package for this summer based out of our new Mountain Lodge as we speak. The adventures will continue!

9 years ago I wrote this on my facebook page and I've been going to back to this magical place every year since, and the magic is still as powerful as it was the first time! "I have been a skier skiing 100 plus days a year for over 20 years. I make a living on my skis making ski movies all over the world. I have never in my life had a ski experience as powerful and overwhelming as I did the past 10 days at NEH Heli ski. All passionate skiers have a vision of skiing heaven, and it is Heli skiing. This visions gets built up over years of seeing heli skiing in movies and photos in industry mags. I was scared that I had built up my expectations so high that reality couldn't possibly deliver. I was wrong. I got my mind blow, day after day run after run. The most incredible landscapes, amazing terrain, and 40,000 plus feet of untracked pow every day, all day the whole time we here here. The guides where complete all-stars, keeping us safe, but in a relaxed and fun way. The food was off the hook, and the people we skied with... I have made 6 life long friends. Even the Norwegian's were cool... except for Anders Larsen.... It has changes my life for the better, forever. Thank you NEH. I'll will never forget my time with you guys in the promise land. Rex."

From the Heart buddy! Thanks You! This is the first time in 10 years you haven't joined us - dam Covid... It'll just make next season an even better reunion. We'll look forward to seeing you and Kathy next season and to the next Human Weightlifting Completion which I believe I handily won hands down... :-)
