Northern Rockies Heli Skiing Excursion
Our area, located in the Hart and Muskwa Ranges of the Northern Rockies is known for its most incredible and spectacular snow quality… the Dry, Northern Powder. Wide open Alpine Ridges and vast bowls surrounded by jagged peaks are waiting for you to carve turns through the sparkling deep champagne powder. These open runs average between 2100 and 3300 vertical feet. For many Heli-Skiers there is nothing to compare to 'tree skiing'. We have discovered deep valleys with naturally well spaced, mature trees and an abundance of snow which will exceed the expectations of the most demanding skiers. A large number of these runs are only minutes from the lodge and can easily be utilized during poor weather conditions. Our most spectacular tree runs are steep-pitched with over 3700 feet of vertical… a dream come true for most discriminatory skiers. In percentages our terrain is 40% gentle, 40% steep and 20% very steep. Remember we have only skied a very small portion of the nearly 3000 square miles of tenured land and expect to develop at the very least 200 more exquisite and breathtaking runs. By this year we will have developed in excess of 400 runs! Our dry winter climate offers temperatures that range from 23 F down to -4 F. Our area receives an abundance of precipitation, on an average 45 feet annually providing us with a base of 10-12 feet!

Accommodation and Cuisine:
Our picture-perfect Lodge fits harmoniously into 300 private acres and provides magnificent views of Williston Lake and the Canadian Rocky Mountains. The newly built eight-suite facility, designed in the historic "square log - dovetail corner" style, enables us to provide our guest with single or double occupancy accommodations in an atmosphere of intimacy, yet with a feeling of openness, and relaxation. Each room is tastefully decorated with careful attention to detail, and has it's own private bath and satellite internet connection. We also have a private chalet with three suites available, right next to the main lodge for a more intimate setting for smaller groups. The common areas include the Great Room, where after a wonderful day in the mountains and a superb meal, you can join friends by the fireplace. Enjoy an evening of great music, the finest of beverages, and a stroll on the wrap-around deck for a soak in the outdoor hot tub under the Aurora Borealis. The lodge also offers a fully stocked bar, sauna, outside hot tub, stretch and fitness room and laundry facilities with a specially designed boot room with boot and glove dryers. Each evening our Chef will prepare delicious plate service dinners, three to four courses and each day from a different country. For example, Saturday night is "Germany"; a wild game dinner, the Canada's fare features a buffalo steak BBQ, baked beans and home fried potatoes.

We offer two different packages:
Powder Heaven:
Surrounded by the peaks of the Northern Rockies, three groups of 4 skiers, each group accompanied with their own certified mountain guides will share one roomy A-STAR helicopter, enabling each group to experience the endless bounty of untracked powder runs every day. This seven day package includes 30,500 vertical meters or 100,000 vertical feet, guaranteed. We caution you that Heli-skiing is not for the novice skier. You should have considerable experience skiing BLUE and BLACK RUNS at downhill resorts. We recommend good physical preparation prior to your heli-ski experience... the fitter you are, the more you will enjoy your heli-ski vacation.

Powder Deluxe (Semi-Private):
Designed for the expert skier, and powder connesouris this package includes 35,000 vertical meters or 115,000 vertical feet, guaranteed. Only two groups of 4 skiers per group, each accompanied by their own certified mountain guide will share one A-Star helicopter for maximum POWDER experience in our 6000+ square kilometers of untouched heaven. Both packages are designed for the various appetites, abilities and energy levels of our guests. Packages are all inclusive with the exception of Massages, Bar and Dinner Beverages.
