Silvertip Heliskiing is First Class – Trip Review
I had the good fortune to visit Silvertip Heliskiing in March 2019 with a couple of ski buddies. I’m happy to report that it is First Class!
Silvertip sets the tone with the helicopter flight into the lodge from Williams Lake, BC ( a short flight from Vancouver.) The former hunting and fishing lodge was upgraded by CMH when it was one of their operations. Now Silver Tip reaps the benefits. One of the guides, Rupert is a 20 year CMH veteran. Seen here with my buddies Steve and Harry, famous for shreddin’ the gnar.
The heliskiing terrain is awesome. It includes great tree skiing, beautiful alpine runs and a memorable burnt forest with great visibility for high speed turns….. And the variety of terrain in close proximity to the lodges is especially great.
Most notably, Silvertip skis in just two groups and offers unlimited vertical. No waiting on the machine, and no shock at checkout – except for my bar tab…
The hospitality is first class! Everyone from the chef to the housekeeping staff is eager to please, and attentive but casual and friendly. We happened to be there for Saint Patrick’s Day, which included crazy outfits, decorations and glacier ice for our cocktails from an ice cave we visited.
The food is great and the wine and scotch selections are respectable.
We were joined by a fun loving group of ladies, Caroline, Julie & Len, aka Dutchies Do Ski. Here is their Instagram Story / Video
The facilities include an outdoor hot tub, sauna, steam and massage room.
