PROGRAM OVERVIEW

This program is unique to Tweedsmuir Park Lodge and can be purchased in either a single-group or two-group format. Programs are based on helicopter hours per group instead of vertical feet per person.

This program is offered at the same time as other ski programs; meaning, there will be other guests at the lodge sharing the facilities and the hospitality services, but you will have your own exclusive helicopter for heli skiing.

This program is designed to guarantee operational flexibility and therefore maximizes the chances of locating the best snow and providing the best heli skiing holiday of your life. 

If you can round up a group of 4 or 8 like-minded skiers or snowboarders, this program is for you. If you are a family, you can ski at your own pace and return to the lodge when you like. It's your own exclusive heli skiing experience. You decide!

Since this program is designed based on helicopter hours per group you get to decide how to best utilize your flying time. This is planned in consultation with our experienced guide team. 

Whether your goal is to explore new terrain, to ski as many runs as possible, to locate your favourite terrain features, to have a sit-down lunch at the lodge, or even to sleep in and have a late start one day, the choice remains yours. 

You can fly far and wide. Explore the towering peaks surrounding the lodge. Tour the glacial icefields to the south or the coastal fjords to the west. You can even fly to a natural hot spring overlooking the Pacific Ocean, maybe eat lunch on the beach, and then go for a soak to soothe the muscles before returning to the mountains for afternoon powder laps in the sun.

These programs utilize an A-Star helicopter. Based on the size of your group you can choose whether to purchase the program as a Single Group Private with space for up to 4 guests + 1 guide or a Two Groups Private with space for up to 8 guests flying as 2 groups of 4 guests + 1 guide per group.

Is this program right for me?

This program is appropriate for experienced skiers and snowboarders, as well as those who have never heli skied before, including families of up to 8 people.

A unique advantage of a Two Group Private is that you can split up into a slower group and a fast group. If you plan to travel as a multi-generational family, the youth can ski more aggressively, and the adults more leisurely. Or perhaps, the other way around.

Single Group Privates can be booked by less than 4 people, though the price is fixed. Two Group Privates can be booked by less than 8 people, though the price is fixed.
