Bordering a pristine fishing river, Tweedsmuir is surrounded by the towering peaks of the Coast Range. Stay in beautiful timber-frame chalets with the heli pad right out front.
- Eagle Lodge Are you time restricted? Then Eagle Lodge is for you. Located in the sleepy village of Hagensborg, Eagle Lodge is the home of our Heli Assisted Ski Touring program and is available for shorter durations of the standard Classic Vertical package (eg 3, 4, or 5 nights). It is ideal for solo travelers as everyone stays in the same building, and which as several social areas. One of the highlights of booking a trip to Eagle Lodge is that we run just 3 or sometimes 2 groups of 4 out of the heli!
- Pantheon Heli Ranch Pantheon is extremely unique in the Canadian heli-skiing industry in that you can regularly ski first descents! Yes, ski terrain that has NEVER been skied….amongst the largest peaks in BC & the longest vertical in Canada with runs up to 6,000ft! Stay here solo, with a few friends or have exclusive use of the whole operation with your own group of up to 9 people.
- Mystery Mountain Ranch Deep in the heart of the Coast Range exists zones with literally thousands of epic runs that have never been skied. Until now. Enjoy huge unexplored peaks, first descents as far as the eye can see, and genuine home-style ranch hospitality. With a capacity of 5 people per week, it is the perfect location for a small group of buddies or a family looking for a special experience.
- Terra Nostra Guest Ranch An exciting addition to our array of wilderness lodges, Terra Nostra accesses some extremely remote terrain where we have done very little skiing. Join us and claim some first descents! This location hosts just 8 people, making it perfect for a private group (note: groups smaller than 8 might be possible).
- MV Cascadia At 138ft, this catamaran is perfect for those who are after absolute privacy and exclusivity.
