Heli Skiing Terrain – Last Frontier Heliskiing Run Maps
With over 850 heli skiing slopes in an area that is a quarter the size of Switzerland, finding fresh powder is never much of a challenge. This vast tenure is shared amongst a maximum of 36 guests at Bell 2 Lodge and 24 at our Ripley Creek location in Stewart, BC. That works out to 211 square kilometers [49,000 acres] per skier. To further put that number into perspective – this is equivalent to every one of our guests having 9 Whistler/Blackcomb ski resorts all to themselves. With that much terrain to your disposal, the heli skiing and heli snowboarding options are almost limitless.
To give you an idea of the diversity of heliski slopes you’re likely to experience at Last Frontier Heliskiing, we’ve assembled a collection of run maps. The choices range from high alpine peaks, to vast bowls, open glaciers, gladded sub alpine area, and steep tree descents. Our skiable elevation ranges from a base of 600 meters [1,970 feet] to a high of 2,800 meters [9,200 feet], with the average run vertical coming in around 900 meters [2,950 feet].
The following is a small sample of the types of heli skiing slopes you are likely to encounter at Last Frontier. You can find more run maps [here].
