Group of 8? The heli is exclusively yours

What is a Semi-Private?

Similar to the Private program but for 8 people instead of 4: perfect for a crew of buddies wanting to rip at their own pace or perfect for families wanting their own program and privacy.

  1. Min. ability Strong Intermediate
  2. Group size 2 groups of 4
  3. Groups per heli 2
  4. Season Early Winter, Winter, Spring, Summer

The ultimate choice if you would like to heliski with just your family and friends!

Semi-Private are just like Privates with just 2 groups of 4 people instead of 1 group of 4. These packages are our most exclusive programs: a private helicopter just for your group. Everything is designed to guarantee operational flexibility and therefore maximize the chances of finding the best snow and the ultimate heliskiing holiday of your life. 

If you are a group of rippers, this program will guarantee you won't be waiting on strangers. If you are a family, you can ski at your own pace and not have to worry about other people. It's your experience... you decide!

Since the program is based on flying time rather then a set amount of vertical, you and your group can decide how to use that time. Whether your goal is to explore new terrain, ski as many runs as possible, or look for the best snow, the choice is yours. You could even decide to fly to a hot spring overlooking the Pacific Ocean, eat lunch on the beach and go for a soak in the hot springs before spending the rest of the afternoon  heliskiing! You can fly far and wide: from the high peaks surrounding the lodge, to the ice caps in the south, and on to the fjords in the west, or you can even decide to sleep in and enjoy a late start. 

The helicopter we are flying is an Astar B2 with room for four people in each group for a total of 8 people (maybe 9 depending on total weight). 

The entire lodge can be yours

What is better than booking your own helicopter? Having the entire operation exclusively for your family reunion or a large group of buddies! We have had huge success with lodge buy-outs, with guests not only loving the amazing heli-skiing, but our lodge team often exceeds  expectations by organizing non-skiing activities such as the Bella Coola Olympics! Tweedsmuir Park Lodge has a capacity of 16 people, while both Eagle Lodge and Pantheon Heli Ranch accommodate 8 people.

Who should book?

Our Semi-Private program is appropriate for experienced skiers and boarders, as well as those who have never heli skied before, including families of up to 8 people. A Semi-Private may be booked by less than 8 people, though the price is fixed. The program can also be booked as a Private if your group is 4 or less.
