Hang on for the ride of your life and sail through some of BC’s deepest powder in an area so vast, so pristine you’re not only in nature you’re part of it.
The view from the top
Come join us at the top of the world, at the doorstep of the Canadian Rockies. If you’re on the hunt for deep, pristine powder and million-dollar views, there’s only one way to go — up to the Cariboo Mountains. Strap on some fat skis or a snowboard and create waves of champagne powder along with memories to last a lifetime when you step into a helicopter or onto a Snowcat and head up, up and away into the mountain ranges that surround us.
Up here it is possible to feel like you’re in a place no man has ever set foot or laid tracks. Sure, ski hills are fun, but for the sake of adventure nothing comes close to touching the thrill of taking the road less travelled and carving a path down the side of a mountain that appears untouched by man.
On the Prowl – Cat Skiing
Cat skiing in the Cariboos in sight of the majestic Mount Robson is but one way to test your powder ability and become the envy of your friends. Let the heated Snowcat do the work and prowl 914 metres (3,000 vertical feet) up. Watch as the trees give way to the alpine meadows, look out the window and marvel as you burst through the clouds into stunning blue skies. Breathe deep and harness the anticipation, feel those goose bumps appear as you imagine the ride you’re about to take and channel the intensity of the moment when you point your skis and let yourself go.
Straight to Heaven – Heli-skiing
You’ve tried the ski hill and you’ve conquered the Snowcat. Now to get any higher you have to grow wings and fly. Heli-skiing lets you do just that. The ride up is spectacular — your ears will pop and your face will be sore from grinning, but the view from up here is one so few get to witness and it’s worth every penny. Blue skies and jagged peaks — this is where Earth stops and heaven begins. This is where we reach impossible heights and access unbelievable powder. Some of us are quiet when we reach the top, sobered by such monumental beauty, some of us laugh and some weep. Heli-skiing in the Canadian Rockies is an adventure of a lifetime, and the ride up isn’t even the best of it. Long, steep tree runs, classic glades, wide bowls filled with powder — seven metres on average — this is the kind of skiing Warren Miller made famous. You can keep your ski hills, we’ll take our mountain ranges.
