Snowcat Back-up! = No down days

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!

2011 Powder Skis!

Fresh Boards for your pleasure

Here is a look at some of our favourite 2011 Powder Skis from K2, Armada, Rossignol, and  Volkl.

Armada-JJ-20112011 Armada JJ

Fairly mellow graphic, great ski that can do everything well.

k2-hellbent-20112011 K2 Hellbent

Ugly as ever, but still skis awesome!  Amazingly maneuverable for such a large ski, and you can still rail turns if you put em up on edge.

k2-obsethed-20112011 K2 Obsethed

Great graphic, gotta love the bright bases.  New Powder rocker on the front ( more like the Hell Bent ) with classic rocker on the back.  Still one of my favorite skis made even better.

Volkl-Chopstick-20112011 Volkl Chopstick

I really want to get these out in the powder to really try them out.  Great graphic, the Volkl feel in a big pow pow ski.

Rossignol-s7-20112011 Rossignol S7

Nice graphic, not as friendly on the groomed as the rest. Very solid ski.
