What We’re All About
When you arrive at Last Frontier Heliskiing, you’ve left the world behind. It’s up here in Northern British Columbia where things get wild.
Over more than two decades, we’ve carefully honed our approach to heli skiing and heli boarding.
We understand it’s a commitment to visit our neck of the woods. That’s why from the moment you arrive to your last run, we’ll pull out all the stops to make your trip one to remember.
We’re passionate about heliskiing and believe in calling it like it is. This site should give you everything you need to know about Last Frontier without too much hype and marketing guff. That way you can choose if we are the right fit for your Canadian heli ski adventure.

Northern British Columbia is all about serious mountains and big snow. It might seem like you're about to journey to the edge of the Earth — but isn't that the point?
Guests arrive in Vancouver, from there, a 1.5-hour flight brings you to Smithers or Terrace. A 4-hour ground transfer leads you deep into the Coast and Skeena Mountains — home to Last Frontier’s Bell 2 Lodge and Ripley Creek Inn.
