Every heli ski operation in the world touts itself as a premium powder skiing experience, but only one can claim that they’re the best.
Northern Escape Heli Skiing (NEH) was named the World’s Best Heli-Ski Operator at the 10th Annual World Ski Awards.
“The World Ski Award for Best Heli Ski Operator is quite prestigious and we’re very pleased to win,” says NEH President, John Forrest. “People have started to recognize our tours, terrain, and snowpack as the best in the world.”
NEH has only been around since 2004, but they’ve been able to establish themselves as the premier heli ski operator in the world in that short period of time.
They offer three luxurious lodges, the lightning-fast Agusta Koala helicopter (aka the flying Ferrari), snowcat backups for storm days, and a world-class culinary team.
Congrats to Northern Escape Heli Skiing on nabbing the prestigious award. Well deserved!
More about NEH:
“Our location in Northern BC’s Skeena Range, with its far north latitude and proximity to powerful Pacific storms, produces one the planet’s deepest, driest and most reliable snowpacks. The terrain here is big and wild–alpine bowls, immense glaciers, steep couloirs and epic tree skiing. This is big-mountain, backcountry skiing and snowboarding at its finest.
Our small groups of just five or six riders explore this vast white wonderland using the Italian-made Agusta Koala helicopter, the fastest and most agile machine in the business.
With quick access to our lodges from Terrace, BC, Northern Escape is easily BC’s most accessible heli ski and heli boarding operator. We’re one of the only operations to have snowcats at the ready, so you’re able to ride even on storm days when the machines can’t fly. Our new Mountain Lodge, opened in 2020, is among the most comfortable, boutique heli ski lodges you’ll find anywhere and we are one of the few heli operators worldwide to be certified carbon neutral.
Escape to the North for a superior heli skiing adventure!”
