Great Canadian Heli-skiing Quick Facts

Location: Great Canadian Heli-skiing Heather Mountain Lodge is one of the most accessible heli-skiing lodges in Canada. From Calgary it is a 4 hour drive west on the Trans Canada Highway (also called Powder highway), passing through beautiful Banff, Lake Louise and Golden with plenty of opportunities for pre and post-resort skiing.

Mountain Ranges: the Selkirk and Purcell mountains.

Annual Snowfall Average:  14 meters average annual snowfall.

Run Length: Most of our runs average in length of 500 vertical meters, and our longest run is 1,900 vertical meters!

Ski Terrain: Amazing and varied terrain, from challenging steeps, open alpine bowls, glaciers to glades. The snow conditions are often the best in the trees as the snow has more protection from the wind and sun than an exposed slope. Expert skiers will LOVE our mushrooms and pillow lines, and snowboarders and aggressive skiers will enjoy our natural half pipes.

Average Daily Vertical: More than 7000 meters.

Number of Runs per Day: The average group skis 8-12 runs a day.

Grouping: Small groups, with only 4 guests per group and per guide. Smallest group format in the industry.

Sickest couloir in Norway!!

Publicerad: 12 April, 2015 av Jaan Oldin |

(12 April 2015)

As the Heli & Cat skiing season is winding down we at GO Heli & Cat Skiing turned to our second passion and went up to the Lyngen/Tromsö Alps way up north of the Arctic circle for some ski touring, Here is also where our friends at the premier ski magazine in Norway “Fri Flyt” awarded the tight Øksehogget couloir the raddest couloir in Norway.

 

Head far beyond the Arctic Circle in Norway and you’ll experience another world; wild and remote landscapes that in winter mostly attract hardy ski tourers and those in search of an ethereal experience in the northern light show. Mountains rise 1500m straight from sea level

The Lyngen Alps (Lyngsalpene) is a unique and unspoiled alpine mountain range on a peninsula near Tromsø, and a popular destination for ski touring and hiking.
