About Northern Escape Heli-Skiing and Boarding

Small cohesive groups
You'll fly in cohesive groups of up to six skiers in our new Koala helicopters. Each helicopter services a maximum of three groups in order to allow us greater mobility and to increase the terrain selection that is available for us to enjoy. You'll be free to ski/board as little or as much as your group chooses and at your own pace.

One of the largest ski areas in the world
Our Heli-Skiing/Boarding area, one of the largest in the world, is still vastly unexplored. We offer you exclusive use of our vast and varied terrain, nearly 6000 sq km (2,300 sq miles). To date we have established over 250 runs, with endless opportunities to ski/board first descents every day, along with naming rights of course, for many years to come.

Northern Escape Heli-Skiing is owner operated and dedicated to the heli ski/snowboarding experience, customer satisfaction and your safety. It is our goal to exceed your expectations in each.
