Informe de las Condiciones de esquí

Cada día durante la temporada de heli-esquí (de mediados de Diciembre hasta finales de Abril) nuestros guías recogen la información del estado de la nieve, temperatura, acumulaciones de nieve recien caida y el terreno por donde se ha esquiado. Tanto los informes diarios como los semanales están disponibles. Para aquellos que quieran investigar un poco más, tenemos el histórico de los informes de años anteriores y estaremos encantados de compartirlos con vosotros. Sólo tenéis que pedirlo bien ;-).

Temporada de heli-esquí 2019

El heli-esquí diario empieza el 22 de Diciembre de 2018 en Bell 2 Lodge y el 26 de Enero 2019 en Ripley Creek.

Ripley Creek

The week started off with some terrific fresh lines in the Silverado and Marmot areas. Then the weather kept us at bay until we got out for two spectacular days in the middle of the week. Amazing spring powder was found in Bowser and Todd Creek. Upon returning from two mega ski days, some of our Austrian guests opted for a little cool down swim in the Pacific Ocean. A great end to the 2019 season.

A tough last week weather wise but also two amazing ski days in fresh powder in the alpine. Really good conditions when we got there. We had a great group of guests this week and they where always in good spirits waiting for the weather to clear and go for it when it showed. Probably some of the best apres ski times ever!

Great week of skiing!! Spring arrived but we were able to find some great skiing in northerly aspects with dry preserved snow. During the afternoon solar aspects provided great corn skiing with great views of the tenure. We had mostly clear skies for the week and were able to push around the tenure a bit to find preserved snow. Variations in ski lines provided guests with a very good skiing experience.

Warm temps a sunny skies made for classic spring skiing conditions. Although powder was hard to come by we quickly adapted to the conditions finding perfect sun softened slopes. The corn snow allowed us to negotiate very steep chutes and wild glaciated features Many once in a decade lines were skied including some first descents, Diurnal Peak was an amazing 1300 meter corn run with sustained 45 degree skiing from peak to valley!

An amazing week of spring skiing with lots of steep terrain skied. Blue sky's every day except day 1 where we got up to 15cm fresh powder that stayed conserved in the Alpine on North and Easterly aspects.
Corn snow developed on all solar aspects and guests had an awesome time discovering the vastness of our tenure and the endless possibility's to ski.

The week started with a storm bringing new snow and stormy weather so we were not able to ski. The fat bikes continued to earn their keep and many guests visited the lake near Bell 2 with them. One group got out the cross country skis for a 12km loop around the surrounding area. Once the storm broke the skies opened up and allowed for a lot of skiing in the alpine in the sun with tremendous views. Warm air temperatures made it challenging to find good snow, however the East and South West did provide us with some spectacular turns in glorious warm sunshine. There were a lot of goggle tans!

Our first day was sunny and clear, we gave our groups a taste of the fine alpine terrain and high glaciers. The rest of the week was dominated by steady snow falls which made for phenomenal forest skiing. Day after day of face shots with each run seaming to be better than the last. The legendary of steep and deep Ripley tree skiing was realized by all.

It continued to snow day after day with breaks that allowed us to get out and have a really good time. Lots of big air and smiling faces.

This week goes down in the record books of some of the steepest skiing one could do at Last Frontier Heliskiing. This is thanks to the unbelievable stretch of good weather for several weeks with a few small snow falls to periodically improve conditions. Numerous first descents were made and guest went home with major goggle tans, tired legs from doubling their vertical packages and very big smiles.

What a week. 7 days of blue skies and no wind meant preserved powder in all corners of the tenure. We skied steep alpine lines and opened up some terrain for the first time this season. Minds were blown, and new heli-ski addictions were formed. Thanks to all departing guests for a great time. It was one to remember!

The week started off with cooler temperatures but warmed up to -6 daytime temperature from -15. Although, there was no snowfall during the period, skies were generally clear with good visibility providing access to all reaches of the tenure. Good snow stability combined with favourable weather allowed groups to ski lines that haven't been skied this season. Generally, skiing consisted of alpine terrain from peaks and ridge lines which allowed groups to see the endless glaciated and mountainous landscape. It was an absolutely great week of skiing.

This week blessed us with beautiful blue skies, crisp, cold powder and gentle alpine breezes. The mountains permitted us to safely enjoy gnarly steep lines, some of which are only occasionally skied. Another international roster, from Slovenia to the States, left thoroughly pleased. We look forward to seeing y'all again next winter!

The week started out with clear skies and cold temperatures. We were able to get out and ski a lot of really cool alpine lines and glaciated terrain. A storm rolled through near the end of the week and we had some great storm snow skiing in the trees. The following day brought blue skies and amazing skiing with deep powder turns. Great end to a fun week.

Week 10 had unsettled weather with a couple of bluebird days. Some much needed snowfall finally arrived giving us 45 cms of fresh fluff by the end of the week. We were able to find excellent conditions in our treeline terrain for most of the week. Our last day culminated with an amazing day in the alpine with perfect powder on all slopes from the alpine bowls to valley bottom glades. We had a notable wildlife sighting when the dutch group got to share a glacier run with a large wolverine.

A challenging week with widespread wind effected surfaces and cold temperatures in the high alpine. The saving grace was blue skies every day and the guides abilities to sniff out sheltered areas which held powder snow. We had a successful Safari mission this week deep in the heart of our tenure, and even made a few first descents to top it off: Map of Tassie, Mezico Bowl, and Desperado. And...this weeks guests were the best ever!

The first arctic air mass settled into the province bringing cold, clear weather at the beginning of the week. We found shelterd powder in protected alpine bowls and treeline glades. A mid-week 30cm miracle dump of very low density snow, followed by blue sky the next morning, had everyone elated as we skied some of our biggest vertical glacier runs near the Gran Duc mine site. This included the 7km long, 1900m vertical run “So Good”. Many guests said it was the best skiing day of their lives. Another great week at Ripley Creek.

A very challenging week for flying due to cloud cover and fog layers. We got out every day except Friday. Some days where cut short, but the tree skiing was excellent with the regular snow refreshes. Good snow coverage all the way to valleys bottoms. We where teased by a weather opening briefly, but where unable to fly into the high alpine. Our guests had a blast, however, and several have already re-booked for 2020.

As the week progressed, warmer temps made for some downtime due to low valley fog. We where able to find a way above the clouds Wednesday for a magical day in the sun with great snow. Later in the week more snow arrived and we found good skiing in the alpine to the South. The week ended with some great tree skiing in Red Flat.

A very special week with the String Cheese Incident music band taking over our entire lodge. Live music nightly created an incredible atmosphere and everyone had a great time both on and off the slopes. We can’t wait to do it again next year! Skiing wise, we had epic weather to start the week with a beautiful bluebird day. Clouds moved in later along with plenty of new snow.

Early season conditions where outstanding with the arrival of a big storm front mid-week delivering 80cm of fresh snow. This made for great skiing conditions both up high in the alpine and low down in the trees. Coverage is building up very nicely for this time of the year and allowed us to ski to valley bottoms on many runs.

Spring finally caught up in the north and warm temperatures encroached into the week causing 2 non-ski days this week. Skiing quality depended on the amount of new snow covering various crusts except for high north, but finally blue skies and we were back in great powder on the high glaciers. The Last two days in the season – April 14th and 15th ended on a high note with gorgeous weather and classic spring skiing in the alpine. A huge thanks to all that visited this season.

The final week of 2018 started with one of the lightest dumps of snow all season. We enjoyed beautiful alpine and tree line skiing before a mid week warming changed conditions back to spring. The final days saw another dump with full winter conditions in the trees. It was an excellent season overall with Mother Nature providing cold temperatures, lots of snow and plenty of sun. We are already looking forward to 2019. Thanks to all our guests who skied with us and we hope to see you again.

Perhaps one of the best weeks of the season.... It started out with a massive winter storm which brought us 85cm of storm snow and we skied tree runs in thigh deep powder while it continued to snow. Mid week saw a break in the storm which allowed us to get into the alpine but some valleys were still receiving new snow from the cumulus clouds. The last days went completely blue bird and we were able to ski off our highest summits with no wind and winter like conditions. A taste of everything and we visited many areas of the tenure. Team Waiting were patient and all the waiting finally paid off. Thanks again to all our guests and we hope to ski with you again some day.

We had some fresh powder in the beginning of the week that made for excellent skiing in the alpine. Warm air arrived on Monday and settled the snow quickly but we still had good skiing. Midweek increasing clouds and precipitation on Thursday kept us down but on Friday it was incredible to get into the high glaciers and skiing was great again.

The week began with superb powder skiing in the Eastern end of the area and several forays into the high alpine areas of Grand Duc and Todd Creek. Heavy weather shut us down for a couple of days, which allowed our hard partying guests some social time and included a magnificent encounter with a pod killer whales off the Hyder pier. On the last day we were able to punch through the fog and have an absolutely stunning day in the high alpine of the Frank Mackie and Johnson icefields.

We had a very good week with great weather all week. There was only a little bit of fresh powder on the last day and we could explore lots of the alpine runs in the tenure. It was not easy to find the best snow since there was a lot of wind in the higher mountains the week before but the guides did a fine job and the guest where very happy.

The best stretch of weather so far this season with blue skies every day except Friday. We ventured to the far corners of the tenure and skied many runs that had not yet been skied this season. We also made the first descent of the instant classic 900m B.L.O. Bowl near Hanna Ridge and 1000m Jump Street in Nelson Creek. Truly a week to remember. Thanks to all our guests.

We spent most of the week skiing stormy conditions in Surprise Creek. No complaints, it was a fantastic week with lots of powder and amazing ski conditions. Our last day dawned blue and we were able to enjoy a half day of skiing some of our classic alpine runs in the Cambria and Grand Duc zones.

Lots of good weather this week with great panoramic views from the top of the high mountains. Weather was cold and dry until midweek as an unusual wind event affected the snow quality negatively in the Alpine. We still found good snow in sheltered terrain and at the end of the week 20 cm fresh powder where awesome.

A very sunny week of skiing at Ripley. Although the winds ravaged much of our terrain, with such a vast area to work with, our guides were able to find excellent preserved powdered. Our loyal returning guests the Utah boys almost cracked 200,000 ft of skiing, while Stian, Jan and Pete hucked some of the largest cliffs in the tenure. First time guests Patrick and Beatrice had a great time and we hope to see them again.

An outstanding week with huge variety both in our weather and terrain we skied. We had sun, then snow, then sun and more snow. We skied our classic long glacier runs when the weather was good and steep tree runs with pillow drops when it was cloudy and snowing. Thanks to our big Swiss group and our Hagen German group for skiing at Last Frontier.

Week 7 was a week to remember. It started out with some really great deep powder skiing all over the tenure. We had one day that the weather did not allow us to get out but we were getting tired anyway. After our mid week day off we got back out and skied some great alpine runs to finish the week off. Felt like we just had a really great party all week long with some good friends.

This was a week of big swings in the weather, with super snowy storm days and clear skies. We skied waist deep snow one day, and smooth alpine features around big ice on the high glaciers the next. There was a down day, and we enjoyed a fire in the gazebo with singing, dancing, and walking on coals. Thanks for coming and we hope to see you next year

A very snowy week with the perfect amounts of light dry powder every day. We had amazing skiing at treeline and below in deep cold powder. The weather was mostly overcast so the higher elevations where only available for short excursions but the scenery then was stunning above a sea of clouds.

The first week of operations for Ripley Creek. Our first day was stunning with perfect powder from peak to valley and we skied our massive alpine runs in the Bowser River Valley. A mid week break gave us the opportunity to explore the new tenure extension near the Portland Canal and Hastings Arm. The remainder of the week we had fresh powder every day giving us waist deep powder skiing on the amazing tree runs of Surprise and Deep Creek.

Short week with only three guest days. The week started with beautiful sunny skies but bracing arctic temperatures, we sampled some wonderful alpine terrain with an austere ambiance. Some new snow later in the week pushed away the cold air mass and allowed us to frolic in the enchanted forests.

The week started with a heavy snowfall that delivered 60 cm of fresh and made for some great skiing in both the trees and the alpine. For the rest of the week the skies cleared and we were able to explore far and wide under bluebird skies. We ended the week skiing under beautiful light as we celebrated winter solstice. What a way to start the season!
