Start your first run catskiing with a heli drop!
Well this is a cool concept. Northern Escape Heliskiing just announced that they will be running a unique catskiing program for the 1st month of the season. Now skiers and boarders can experience the deep, remote powder of Northern Escape's terrain at a fraction of the price of heliskiing. And there is a bonus...your first ride is in a helicopter!
From December 11th to January 15th each season, Northern Escape will be offering this package - 3 days all inclusive unlimited vertical for $2299 per person. Not bad for 3 days catskiing from a heli lodge where you get a heli drop to start your day. Also, if the sun comes out, you will have the opportunity to make the switch to all-day heliskiing - for an additional cost of course.
Northern Escape's GM John Forrest had this to say:
With the more accessible cost of catskiing over heliskiing, this initiative will plumb a new market, reaching skiers and boarders keen to experience catskiing in one of BC's most rewarding backcountry areas. Staying true to our roots, we've added the heli-ski experience as a bonus. Groups don't need to decide in advance; our helicopters are ready to fly to some of the best heli-skiing terrain in the World.
