avalanche training and education, a key to making our sport safe
If you are interested in getting yourself educated , here is a great place to start. The Canadian Avalanche Centre (CAC) is a non-government, not for profit organization dedicated to public avalanche safety. You can start with their online avalanche course (it's free!) It's a great way to gain an understanding of avalanche safety basics or to refresh your avalanche knowledge after a long summer.
The next step is an Avalanche Skills Training course. With an AST course you'll learn the vital fundamentals of travelling in avalanche terrain. For more info on the CAC or to get involved with their programs, visit them here.

skiing is good, free is better
Northern Escape Heli-Skiing, with our location in BC's remote Northwest, has long been renowned for providing the deepest, most reliable, snowpack on the planet and, between you and me, all that deep fluffy stuff doesn't fall from blue skies... It Snows up here and it's Deeper up here!
With all that snow comes some inevitability difficult flying conditions. Therefore, NEH is proud to offer snowcat back-up to all of our heliskiing packages. Now, when the snow is falling hard and it's lying deep in the trees, you'll be enjoying some of the finest, deepest, powder skiing/boarding available thanks to our snowcat back up. Ski/board every day of your package – guaranteed!
Our catskiing area was created out of some of our best tree skiing terrain and encompasses over 6,000 acres, that's nearly the size of Whistler and Blackcomb ski areas combined. It offers everything from steep trees to pillows and open bowls with an average run length of over 2,000 vertical feet.
Should the weather clear enough to fly while we are catskiing, the helicopter will simply pick us up and we'll continue our day of deep powder skiing without interruption. Or, if we're heliskiing and the weather starts to turn for the worse, we will meet the snowcats and again continue our day seamlessly enjoying that deep powder. It's the best combination imaginable - Heliskiing/boarding perfected!
