Last Frontier Heliskiing

Last Frontier Heliskiing offers some of the most amazing powder skiing and snowboarding on this planet, and one can only assume in this universe! On the topic of outer space, space is often referred to as the very last frontier for humans to discover, but the next best thing is the exploration of the phenomenal backcountry of Last Frontier Heli Skiing.

Considering the name, you could be forgiven for thinking that this heliski outfit is in Alaska. Last Frontier Heliskiing is located in British Columbia, but it’s so far north that it’s adjacent to Alaska, and it’s just as remote. In this completely out-of-the-way spot, Last Frontier Heli has a vast tenure of 9,500 square kilometres (2.3 million acres) where there are skiing options galore. To put the size into perspective, this is 3.5 times the average size of a Canadian heli ski operator, twice the size of the average Alaska heli ski operator, and 13 times the average size of a lower 48 heli skiing outfit. It’s massive!

Also massive is the amount of snow, with 25 metres of powder falling annually on average, which is the highest of the North American heli operators. Small groups of 4 guests and mega terrain and snowfalls combine to make Last Frontier Heliskiing a powder hound’s fantasy!

Where is Last Frontier Heliskiing Canada Located?

It’s a bit of a hike to get to Last Frontier Heliskiing, but it’s definitely worth making the pilgrimage to this remote spot to truly and completely get away from the hubbub of everyday life. Last Frontier has two heliski lodges that are based in Northern BC Canada.

Bell 2 Lodge is located 220 miles (360km) northwest of Smithers along the Stewart-Cassiar Highway. You have the choice of staying in Vancouver or Smithers for the pre heliskiing night and can get either a morning or afternoon flight from Vancouver to Smithers Airport (YYD). From the airport, a morning ground transfer is provided to the lodge (about 4.5 hours).

The Ripley Creek Inn is located in Stewart BC, which is just a stone’s throw from Alaska and 200 miles (310km) northwest of Terrace BC. The night before the heli skiing trip commences, you have the option of staying in Vancouver or Terrace, with flights from Vancouver to Terrace Airport (YXT) departing either late afternoon or in the morning. From the airport, a morning ground transfer is provided to the lodge (4-5 hours).

Heliskiing Terrain

With such an enormous tenure, the terrain choices seem almost infinite which assists the guides in finding the best snow quality possible. And you’ll never get bored with the type of runs which include wide open bowls, glaciated terrain, and tree runs in old growth forests. There are some steep and aggressive lines for experts through to more mellow slopes. The longest run is 2,000 metres with an average run length of 900 metres.

Considering the amount of snow that Last Frontier receives it’s not surprising that no-fly days occur, but these only happen about one day per week on average, which is much less than Alaska heli skiing operators. Thankfully Last Frontier has plenty of protected tree skiing options for inclement days.
