Skeena Heliskiing was founded in 2004 and is one of the largest heli skiing areas in the world with an area of 9,525 km2.
The Skeena Mountain range has a huge diversity of terrain, from the high vertical slopes with extreme steeps to powder bowls with pillows and shoots as well as sweeping glades and an abundance of tree skiing providing more Heliskiing opportunities during bad weather periods. Through Skeena’s geographical location and diversity of terrain, we consistently enjoy one of the lowest number of down days in the industry. So our clients ski more.
We are located only 3 hours from Vancouver and 4 hours from Calgary. Flights are available daily from Vancouver International Airports directly into Smithers. From here you are collected by our shuttle for the 1½ hr drive to the Bear Claw Lodge.
The Bear Claw Lodge offers our clients an very exclusive, personal and high quality of accommodation and is only 6 minutes by helicopter to your first runs. We have chosen to use B2 or B3 helicopters as they allow us to access the best of our terrain in almost all conditions and better cater for our smaller groups.
We only employ UIAGM or ACMG certified and highly experienced guides as they are there to ensure your safety whilst leading your group.
We look forward to welcoming you (back!) to Skeena for some great skiing.
