SOBRE NOSOTROS

En 1996, los socios fundadores George Rosset, Franz Fux, Mike Watling y Geoff Straight empezaron con los intentos de explorar las desconocidas cadenas montañosas del Norte de la Columbia Británica en Canadá haciendo primeros descensos en lo que se convertiría en Last Frontier Heliskiing.

Esta pasión por explorar y por la aventura la llevamos en nuestro ADN. Todo lo que hacemos en Last Frontier gira en torno de las montañas y a nuestro viaje de perseguir nieve.

En este lugar salvaje arriba en las montañas, lejos del mundanal ruido, de la rutina y repetición, nuestra familia está dedicada al oficio de producir una experiencia de heli-esquí especial para nuestros huéspedes porque apenas hay nada igual.

La Historia

  • Exploración inicial & Viabilidad
    1994

    Last Frontier inicia una temporada de 8 semanas de heli-esquí de exploración utilizando un solo helicóptero A-Star con base en Bell 2 Lodge. Teton Gravity Research (TGR) aprovechan la oportunidad de visitar esta parte del mundo todavía por descubrir. Apareciendo en su película Re: “Session”.

  • El nacimiento de un pueblecito de heliski.
    1997-2003

    Una completa reconstrucción empezó para transformar Bell 2 Lodge en un pueblecito de heliski.

  • Una segunda casa
    2005

    Ripley Creek nace en la pequeña comunidad de Stewart, enfrente de Hyder, Alaska. Los Jefes de Guías George Feitzinger y Andre Ike exploran la zona estableciendo una nueva área de heli-esquí al completo, sondeando a fondo las Montañas Costeras.

  • Innovación en Seguridad
    2008

    Last Frontier se convierte en uno de los primeros operadores de la industria del heli-esquí en adoptar el uso obligatorio de “Airbags” para avalanchas para todos los huéspedes.

  • Expansión
