Heli Skiing Canada Road Trip to TLH & NEH

tlh-main-image

It would be a bit of an inaccuracy to say that my recent Heli Skiing Road Trip out to Northern Escape Heli and TLH Heli was a road trip. Although there were some shuttle busses involved, it was actually an airplane that shuttled me between these two awesome lodges.

The trip started out with a morning departure from Vancouver in the pouring rain. The original plan was for the TLH Coach to take us from Van to... Read more »


Our Visit to White Grizzly Cat Skiing

Holy crap is this steep! Good thing the pow is so deep you choke on it!

The legend of Cat Skiing at the Grizz is not a legend. It is true. Before my visit, I heard that White Grizzly is the place for steep, deep and tight trees. Just in case that doesn’t resonate with potential clients, their motto is “Ski good. Or eat wood.” So you get the picture.

While this obviously is not the place for every one, expert pow skiers who love the trees will love WG. And... Read more »


Bella Coola- Featured Location of the Month

Northern Escape Heli Skiing- Featured Location

But it may... Read more »

La Nina brings Deep Snow for Heli Skiing and Cat Skiing in BC, Canada

Around early Fall, weather forecasters began predicting another LaNina Season. For those unfamiliar with LaNina, in simple terms, it is a drop in the Pacific Ocean temperature that causes abnormal weather conditions. In the past, LaNina has meant HUGE snowfalls across the BC Mountains and other areas in the Canadian West. While some people were skeptical of the early predictions, the proof has come in the form of one of the snowiest November’s in history. Whistler Ski... Read more »
