Skeena River Ranch

Over 30 metres of snow falls on Terrace, British Columbia each year. That’s a LOT of powder. The paradox of heliskiing is that heavy snowfall can mean poor visibility and time spent waiting for a break in the weather to allow flying. With cat-skiing backup and awesome tree-skiing, Skeena River Ranch gives you options to ensure you will keep skiing even when it's dumping!

The new 604 m2 Skeena River Ranch, constructed of old growth fir, stonework and handcrafted details, is one of the most exclusive heli-ski lodges in the industry. Designed for private groups of just 4 – 5 skiers seeking a little luxury (as well as epic skiing and snowboarding), it features mountain views, a private helicopter landing pad, comfortable lounge areas, a staff to guest ratio of 2:1, a stunning deck for après ski refreshments and easy access from Terrace Airport.


The Lowdown

Huge quantities of snow

Close to the Alaskan panhandle, this part of British Columbia is positively plastered in snow every winter. If it's deep and dry snow you're seeking, you might just have found your Nirvana.

Cat-skiing backup and Unlimited Vertical

If the snow becomes too much and the helis can't drop you up the hill, having the option to go cat-skiing is an alternative that few operators can boast. The cat-skiing area is all in the trees giving you visibility and great skiing and snowboarding even when it's coming thick and fast. Combined with Unlimited Vertical, this makes Skeena River Ranch a great option if you want to ski hard.

Long season

Being a long way north, the season runs from December through to April. This which means flexibility in terms of travel dates, many weeks of great conditions and also enables prices to remain very reasonable.

10-20 minute airport transfer

In spite of being so far North, Skeena River Ranch is just minutes from Terrace Airport with regular direct flights to and from Vancouver. Helicopter transfers are included, but even if weather or daylight mean you have to go by car, it's still only 20 minutes.
