Heli-Skiing & Cat-Skiing

Many international deep-powder enthusiasts, mainly from Europe, return to Stewart year after year for one purpose only – to board a helicopter and make fresh tracks in Stewart's endless mountain terrain.
Heli-skiing provides an incredible mountain adventure for intermediate to advanced skiers, and Last Frontier Heliskiing ensures that each adventure is truly memorable. With a lodge located in Stewart, Last Frontier Heliskiing offers three to four day, or week-long, packages to groups of up to 11 skiers.
Last Frontier Heliskiing
Last Frontier Heliskiing runs one of its two heli-skiing lodges in the Northern British Columbia region in Stewart. Guests must arrange their flights to Terrace, about four hours south, and from there Last Frontier staff members chauffeur visitors from Terrace to Stewart. In Stewart, visitors stay at the Ripley Creek Inn and heli-ski daily (as long as the weather agrees) along hundreds of untouched runs. On average guests ski about 36,576m/120,000ft per week, but this depends on group size and skiing ability.
