Average time to visit

British Columbia benefits from some of the most regular and the deepest snowfalls anywhere in the world. The average seasonal snowfall at 1600m (5000 feet) is a spectacular 25 meters (75 feet), four or five times the average in most areas of the Alps. Winter temperatures average about 0°C during the day and -6°C overnight in the village with snow typically on the ground from Dec into April.

Insider's View

Snowshoe through the forest at twilight, before warming up around the campfire and tucking into a true Canadian cookout - a great way to experience the wilderness by moonlight.

Heliskiing is a mindblowing experience and should be on every serious skier's bucketlist

Itinerary

Heli-skiing is one of life's ultimate ski experiences, and this exciting itinerary combines a stay in the world-class ski resort of Whistler, heliskiing in the breathtaking mountain wilderness of British Columbia and a city break in Vancouver.

  1. Fly to Vancouver

  2. Days 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)

  3. Days 4-5: British Columbia, Canada

    Make the most of the mountain and squeeze in half a day's skiing before making the journey back to the city for an overnight stay at the Fairmont Vancouver Airport, with its convenient airport location for the early start the following day for the next part of your adventure.

    Accommodation: Fairmont Vancouver Airport (1 night)

  4. Days 5-9: 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)

  5. Days 9-10: Transfer & overnight stay

    At the end of your exhilarating heliski adventure you'll head to Smithers for a quick overnight at the Hudson Bay Hotel.

    Accommodation: Hudson Bay Lodge, Smithers (1 night)

  6. Days 10-11: Transfer & overnight stay

    Accommodation: Hudson Bay Lodge, Smithers (1 night)

  7. Days 11-12: 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)

  8. Fly home from Vancouver

Experiences

  • Capilano Suspension Bridge Park

    The Capilano Suspension Bridge Park is a great family afternoon out. Only 10 minutes from Vancouver downtown, walk in a rainforest with a twist! The wobbly bridge over the Capilano gorge may get your head spinning but children love it.

  • Riding the Peak 2 Peak Gondola

    Riding the gondola between Whistler and Blackcomb mountains is an exhilarating experience that everyone should try on their vacation - the views are spectacular. Combine with a hike to Little Whistler Summit (approx. 2 hrs round trip hike).

  • The Grouse Grind

    The Grouse Grind is a self-guided hike directly up the ridge of Grouse Mountain to the base of the cable car and a favorite with fitness fanatic Vancouver locals.
