Fast & Fun at Skeena Heli-Skiing BC

The heli-skiing is fast and fun at Skeena. Owner “Jake” is a former bump racer from Europe. His clients are typically looking to ski fast and get lots of vertical. This works well, as the Bell 407 shuttles groups. There is not much waiting and plenty of helicopter skiing / heli-boarding.  And Jake is probably the best skier with whom I have helicopter skiing in the backcountry.   His skiing is fast, smooth.  Yet he is humble and generous.

Skeena Heli-Skiing in BC

Speaking of fast, Skeena Heliskiing is one of the first BC helicopter skiing operators to sell out every year. So you may want to look more than one heliski season in advance – especially to get the best weeks.
