In 1996, founding partners George Rosset, Franz Fux, Mike Watling and Geoff Straight set out to explore uncharted mountain ranges in Northern BC, Canada and make first descents in what would become Last Frontier Heliskiing.
That passion for exploration and adventure lives on in our DNA. Everything we do at Last Frontier revolves around the mountains and the journey of chasing snow.
In this wild place up in the mountains, far away from four walls, routine and repetition, our family is dedicated to the craft of producing one-of-a-kind heli skiing experiences for our guests.
Bell 2 Lodge is discovered in the heart of the Skeena Mountains in Northern British Columbia. Founding partners George Rosset, Franz Fux, Mike Watling and Geoff Straight are in awe of the potential for heli skiing and began exploring the area.
Last Frontier initiates an exploratory eight week heliski season using a single A-Star helicopter based out of Bell 2 Lodge. Teton Gravity Research (TGR) take the opportunity to visit this undiscovered * part of the world. Featured in their movie Re:Session.
A full re-construction is started to transform Bell 2 Lodge into a heliski village.
Ripley Creek is born in the small community of Stewart, opposite of Hyder, Alaska. Lead guides George Feitzinger and Andre Ike explore the zone establishing a whole new heliskiing area, probing deep into the coast mountains.
Last Frontier becomes one of the first operators in the heliski industry to adopt the use of mandatory avalanche airbags for all guests.
A third helicopter is added at Bell 2 Lodge, enabling more flexibility for private groups. Capacity rises to 35 guests.
Renovations are completed to modernize common facilities at Bell 2 Lodge. The dining room and lobby/gift shop see a big face lift.
Founding partners George Rosset and Franz Fux divest of their stake in Last Frontier Heliskiing. Franz remains on as Director of Operations and George is succeeded by Mike Watling in the role of Managing Partner.
Last Frontier Heliskiing celebrates it’s 20th birthday.
Groups of 5 were great, but groups of 4 are even better. We carry more fuel in the helicopter and thus travel deeper into our massive heliski area. Now 1 guide to every four guests instead of five - also better.
Bar, entertainment area and media room see a full renovation at Bell 2 Lodge. The bar at Ripley Creek also gets a facelift.
