The Southern Chilcotin Mountains: By the time the storms roll over the high Coastal Mountains and meet with the Fraser Plateau, the temperatures has dropped, providing Tyax with light dry powder, much drier than the Coastal Mountains. A rainy day in Whistler usually means lots of snow at our lodge!

Av. Daily Vertical:
Unlimited Vertical!! Vertical varies from 3,000 meters on a weather day to 13,000 meters on a sunny day with the right snow conditions. And you never pay extra for more!
Max Group Size:
An amazing experience with only 1 heli per group. No waiting! We can accommodate 10 Guests & 2 guides per group.
All Tyax guides are hand selected, and are fully-qualified members of the ACMG or the UIAGM (the Canadian and International Mountain Guides Associations).
About the Helicopter:
For standard groups, the Bell 212 is the main heli used and the Bell 407 is used for semi-private ‘small group’ tours.
Higher, Drier & Well Off The Beaten Track
Tyax Lodge & Heli skiing provide luxury heli skiing at its finest! We offer untracked powder, unrivalled personal attention and less waiting time. We want you to spend more time on the slopes and for this reason we stand by a one-group-per-helicopter policy – you and your friends have your own ride, so no waiting for other skiers. We have a lot to offer, but what puts Tyax above the rest is our unlimited vertical guarantee! Our unlimited vertical guarantee means that you can spend more time in deep snow without the worry of a bill on checkout. And if you can’t ski due to weather or mechanical failure, we’ll refund the remaining value of the days you didn’t ski. Enjoy your very own ride and ski to your heart’s content – more time on the slopes is our ultimate aim!
