Itinerary

Fly to Vancouver
Day 1-4

Whistler and Ski British Columbia

You will begin your British Columbia ski adventure by heading to the first class ski resort of Whistler. You will be transferred from Vancouver by private road transfer and spend three nights here experiencing some of the varied ski terrain, first class experiences and wonderful restaurants. 

Whistler is home to the largest ski area in North America, and with large above-the-treeline open bowls, wonderful tree runs, cruising terrain, glacier skiing, chutes and gullies, many call Whistler the best skiing in North America. The two spectacular mountains, Whistler and Blackcomb are linked by the Peak to Peak gondola, and the dazzling range of terrain will keep experts happy for weeks on end, whilst intermediates will love the whole mountain too. Blackcomb is best for endless runs that follow the fall line straight down the mountain's western slope. Whistler’s north-facing trails are less affected by the weather and provide snow-sure skiing on warmer days.

For a break from skiing, take the opportunity to go snowmobiling, ziplining or dogsledding, or try a moonlit snowshoe cookout one evening! Shops, bars and restaurants are plentiful - if you can tear yourself away from the superb slopes, deep powder and mile-long groomers!

Accommodation: Four Seasons Resort Whistler ( 3 nights )
Day 4-8

Whistler and Ski British Columbia

Your journey continues with an early flight from Vancouver up to the Skeena Mountains of Northern British Columbia and the start of your heliskiing adventure. We work with Last Frontier Heliskiing and have chosen Bell 2 Lodge, a remote heliski village comprising a main lodge and guest accommodation in classically Canadian log chalets. You'll have the opportunity to ski in some of the most sensational settings and conditions you’ll ever experience. You’ll plunge into the deepest powder, ski the most spectacular glaciers, make fresh tracks in pristine open bowls, practise your turns in the trees and witness incredible views from the greatest heights.

Each day your professional mountain guide will choose the best terrain from 2.2 million acres. With only 3 groups of just 5 guests per helicopter you’ll truly be able to make the most of this very exciting opportunity. Equally important is the terrain with tree cover as Last Frontier can usually get you skiing even when the weather closes in.

Accommodation: Last Frontier Heliskiing ( 4 nights )
Day 8-9

Vancouver

You will depart early morning to downtown Vancouver to spend your final night in the city of Vancouver. In the evening, the dining choices are abundant in Vancouver and there is something for every taste and budget. Relax, enjoy and relive the amazing experiences of the last week. Your final day will allow you to explore the city, head to the markets of Granville Island or cycle around Stanley Park to experience the true Vancouver vibe before heading to the airport.

Accommodation: Rosewood Hotel Georgia ( 1 night )
