Boat-Based Heli-Skiing

Sea to Sky Adventure, British Columbia

The intricate coastlines of British Columbia and south east Alaska are dramatic on a scale hard to imaginge. For those with a sense of adventure, this pristine wilderness of fjords, islands, rivers and glaciers will leave a lasting impression. Rising almost vertically from the calm emerald waters of sheltered fiords, towering snow-capped mountains provide the perfect playground for heliskiing and untapped adventure.

Heliskiing | Exploration | Adventure

From your floating heliski lodge on board the MV Cascadia you will have access to some of the most inaccessible, best kept secrets in British Columbia’s Coast Mountains. On shore, natural hot springs will help to ease tired muscles and trips to powerful ancient village sites give an insight into the rich native history of the region. Nutrient-rich waters support a phenomenal variety of sea life, birds and marine mammals making this much more than just a ski safari.

The Boat

The 138-foot catamaran Cascadia is a spacious expedition-style vessel perfectly suited to the deep waters of the Inside Passage. She is large enough to offer real comfort but small enough to access the hidden gems that the bigger ships cannot.

We will have a maximum of 8 heliskiing guests on board at any one time but with a total of twelve double/twin cabins there is the possibility to have additional non-skiing guests. All cabins have private bathrooms with direct outside access and plenty of natural light.

Additional Activities and Toys

  • Exploring the local coast and river estuaries by kayak or tender.
  • Fishing for prawns, crab and halibut.
  • Natural hot springs
  • On board hydrophone for listening to whales.
  • On-deck jacuzzi.

The Kuril Islands & Kamchatka

By James Morland •

A more distant, end of the earth type place would be hard to imagine and for the past four years I had dreamed of skiing these gigantic volcanoes that rise so abruptly from the mythical sounding, Sea of Okhotsk.

Relaxed Booking Conditions

By Elemental Adventure •

We understand that the world is now a different place to just several weeks ago and that putting down significant amounts of money for a holiday that is many months away, represents a new level of risk.

We have been looking (and continue to look) at ways to reduce that risk in order to give you some peace of mind as well as the much-needed excitement of an epic ski trip to look forward to.

Heli-Ski Safari

By Jonas Ernevi •

This is not your regular Canadian heli-skiing. This is big wild northern British Columbia and compared to southern BC with all of its heli-ski operations sandwiched together; it’s like a different country.
