Signature Heli Ski Packages
Experience world-class heli-skiing in Canada’s South Chilcotin mountains. TLH Heliskiing
offers nearly one million acres of terrain, over 375 mapped runs & abundant dry snow. Based at the Tyax Wilderness Resort & Spa
, you will experience fine-dining, a fire-side lounge, fully equipped spa & refined accommodation.
The Signature Heli Ski Packages are offered for 3, 4, 5 or 7 nights duration, for 10 guests with 2 guides in a Bell 212 helicopter (ie one group per helicopter). You can pull together 9 of your own friends or join others to meet new ski buddies.
The package includes UNLIMITED VERTICAL heli skiing, guiding, accommodation, return transfers from Vancouver or Whistler, gourmet meals, use of avalanche safety gear (including ABS backpack), and use of powder skis and poles.
TLH has the great combination of ease of access from Vancouver or Whistler, and also being located out in the wilderness where you can completely get away from it all.
There are major benefits to the offer of unlimited vertical. Unlike some other Canada heli skiing companies where you get charged for additional vertical skied, unlimited vertical at TLH improves the group cohesion because no one will be left out when they reach their vertical budget. At TLH you know how much the vacation costs and you can relax and enjoy all the powder turns, rather than worrying about how much each turn costs. And more powder turns equals more powder happiness!
Here is a short video of what you can expect on a TLH Heliskiing package....

TLH Heliskiing offers a sophisticated culinary experience that will both nourish the body and please the senses. To begin with, they make sure the pantry is well-stocked. Starting with a large buffet-style spread of breakfast favourites, they will send you into the mountains with the nutrients you need to ski hard all morning.
Every lift in the machine is another opportunity to grab a snack and some water or Gatorade so you will never find yourself struggling through a run or waiting for lunchtime or apres ski appetizers.
Lunch is served in the mountains; with a perfect backdrop for taking a break, you will enjoy wraps and sandwiches, alongside soup, hot tea, snacks, chocolate, and even hand-made espresso, freshly pressed for a shot of caffeine to start the afternoon.
After a full day of skiing, guests will be served a warm Apres-Ski in the lodge and be invited to spend some time in the lounge with a beverage before hitting the spa, resting before dinner, or hanging out with our staff right until dinner.
A 3-course dinner is hosted in the 30 foot ceiling dining room, centered around a majestic River Rock Fireplace, creating the perfect ambience for an evening of delicious cuisine, fine wine and shared stories of deep and steep days with new and old friends.
TLH menus are carefully crafted with an eye for variety and originality. Emphasis is placed, wherever possible, on using locally sourced ingredients and the chefs love creating mouth-watering and high energy meals to keep your palette happy and your legs strong. The talented and dedicated culinary team will delight you with exquisite samplings of contemporary western favourites.

Incredible culinary experience
Cozy lounge & bar for socialising
For even more relaxation after a major fix of powder skiing, the spa has three treatment rooms where you can enjoy a massage, a sauna, steam room, outdoor hot tub and a yoga studio.
Enjoy a eucalyptus steam bath, detoxifying infrared sauna, or breathe the crisp northern air while soaking in the outdoor Jacuzzi tub, all perfect antidotes to wind-whipped skin and slope-stiffened muscles. A sunny fitness and yoga studio overlooking Tyaughton Lake stretches your spa experience even further.
Is there anything better than indulging in a massage after skiing? The Spa at Tyax specializes in a diverse array of holistic bodywork treatments delivered by highly trained and gifted individuals. Whether you prefer deep tissue work, a hydrating scrub and mask, a rejuvenating facial, or gentle, relaxing energy work, the spa team will customize the perfect treatment for you.
Inspired by the stunning landscape that surrounds it, the Spa at Tyax brings the healing power of the elements indoors. Experience the benefits of ingredients such as pure glacial clay and cold-pressed pacific seaweed, both sustainably harvested in British Columbia.

TLH offers fantastic facilities and a range of outdoor and indoor activities
In addition to the Spa, the incredible dining experience and the guest rooms, TLH also boasts a full service lounge and bar with fireplace, pool table, dartboard, flat-screen TV, and plenty of seating to kick back and enjoy Apres Ski or a night cap. There’s also a comfortable den with foosball, table tennis, a library and a sitting area with flat-screen TV.
Want some more outdoor activity when you return from skiing? Just when you thought you’d experienced everything, you'll discover there's so much more! Should you want to explore the area around the resort further, we offer guests snowshoeing, cross country skiing, and ice fishing for the true Canadian winter wonderland experience. Try one or all of them!
The travel from Vancouver is the beginning of your adventure; a scenic land transfer up the famous Sea to Sky Corridor through Whistler to Pemberton, and either a land or air transfer into Tyax Wilderness Resort & Spa, home of TLH Heliskiing. Or skip the landscapes by road and fly directly from Vancouver. The TLH team will be waiting to greet you and bring you into the lodge.
After a brief safety orientation and some essential paperwork you will have the evening to settle into the lodge and make use of the amenities, including the spa, before your first gourmet dinner is served.
Heli-skiing starts first thing the next morning after a hearty breakfast and stretch class. Lunch is served in the mountains and each day after skiing, après ski is served in the lounge and bar. Enjoy massage treatments and body work, or some relaxation in the Jacuzzi, infrared sauna, wood sauna, or eucalyptus steam room.
On the final day of skiing, guests will return to the lodge at lunchtime and prepare for their departure. Air transfers depart from the lodge back to Pemberton, followed by a land transfer to Vancouver. 3 day packages depart from the lodge by land back to Vancouver after a full day of skiing.
Because of the proximity to Whistler Blackcomb ski resort
, it is very easy to add on a few days prior to your TLH Heliskiing Package. This is a great way to warm up the legs ready for the deep powder in the backcountry. TLH can package this for you or you can arrange this yourself here>>
