DEEP Heli-Skiing Adventure on the BC / Alaska Border

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.

Your adventure starts in Stewart, British Columbia - an old gold rush town on the border with Alaska where the bears outnumber people and 25 metres of snow falls each year. This is a raw, rugged experience where the focus is on the quality of the skiing not the fancy extras.

Heliski Safari Time

On the morning of day four something a little different happens. As normal you get changed into ski gear and fly out by helicopter but this time you are on a one way trip, skiing and flying 100 kilometres through some of the wildest ski terrain imaginable – through pristine forests and virgin slopes that may never have seen a ski track before. As the sun is going down and the legs are becoming weary you arrive at Bell 2 Lodge where warm glowing fires await...and the next part of the adventure begins.

The Kuril Islands & Kamchatka

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.
