Terra Nostra Guest Ranch
Looking for something different, yet cozy with access to amazing skiing? Terra Nostra, a horseback riding ranch in the summer, can host up to 8 people at a time. It's the perfect location for medium sized groups who would like exclusive lodge use with their own helicopter. When not skiing, guests can go horseback riding, ice-fishing, cross country skiing, ice skating and more!
Our most exclusive option.
Cruise the fjords of the Coast Range aboard your private catamaran! At 138ft, the MV Cascadia gives you access to the furthest reaches of our terrain. Complete with hot tub and heli pad on the main deck, this is the ultimate heliskiing experience.
Exclusive Lodge Use
Have exclusive use of your own heli-skiing operation.
Booking a Private or Semi-Private package where you have sole use of one of our helicopters is pretty awesome, however, if you want the ultimate for your family or crew, then doing a "lodge buy out" is the way to go! To have exclusive use of a lodge, your group needs to book all;
- 5 guests at Mystery Mountain Ranch
- 8 guests at Terra Nostra Guest Ranch
- 8 guests on the MV Cascadia
- 9 guests at Pantheon Heli Ranch
- 12 guests at Eagle Lodge
- 16 guests at Tweedsmuir Park Lodge
Bringing additional non-skiing guests might be possible.
All our lodges are great, so which to choose?
The below table will give you an idea of how the lodges compare to each other. To summarize, if you prefer a higher standard of accommodation and great skiing, go with Tweedsmuir. If you are watching your budget and only care about the skiing, book Eagle Lodge. If you are looking for something totally different, funky, just your crew and want to explore uncharted terrain, Pantheon, Terra Nostra and Mystery Mountain Ranch are where you want to be! Regardless of the lodge you book, you will receive the same level of high service and cuisine.....and don't worry, the skiing is mind-blowing at all locations!
