Heliski Perfect Groomers with Last Frontier Heliskiing

The newest innovation in BC’s backcountry ski industry, Heliski Groomers allows skiers and snowboarders of all abilities to experience heli skiing. Imagine carving beautifully prepared corduroy in the remote Skeena Mountains of Northern British Columbia. This exciting program has been in beta testing for several years and now Last Frontier Heliskiing is ready to offer the first trips in 2017.

The History & Innovation
The 2015 and 2016 seasons were spent perfecting the art of grooming natural slopes in remote mountainous terrain. Unlike a traditional resort setting, all of our groomers had to be flown into the mountains and a base established for maintenance of the fleet. The latest proprietary innovation in the form of super-wide angle tiller and double wide roller makes grooming large slopes a breeze.

Why Heliski Groomers?
No pesky lift lines or crowded slopes. Our heliski groomer program allows you to fly into our designated grooming zones just as you would in a regular heliski tour. Our A-Star helicopters will be your ski lift for the day, shuttling you to the day’s freshly groomed slopes. Small groups of 4 people ensure that everyone enjoys fresh corduroy. Unlike traditional heli-skiing [which we will continue to offer], heli groomers are easy. Now you can forget all that deep snow that is difficult to ski and that makes the legs tired. This program is suitable for any level skier, mono-skier, snow-blader, snowbiker or snowboarder. All tours are guided by professional ski instructors, which are on hand to improve your style and get you ready for a regular heliski trip.
