Private heliskiing in Revelstoke, BC.
For 38 years we have been skiing and boarding in the heart of BC's interior mountains.
"Our ski area is unlike any other, with our tenure bordering both Mount Revelstoke and Glacier National Parks. Once you experience skiing through wide-open glaciers, alpine meadows and massive old-growth forests, you will understand why our heli-skiing territory is one of the most famous in the world. We ski both the Selkirk and Monashee Mountains which are renowned for their reliable powder snow conditions and unique terrain features. Our tenure has over 200 established runs with countless options for exploring this powder playground we proudly call our backyard.
The world's best tree skiing is found in our 500,000 acres of terrain due to our unique climate, species of trees, and consistent heavy snowfalls. Most of our skiing takes place below 3,000 metres (9,850 ft). Runs vary from 500 vertical metres in length to over 2,200 vertical metres.
In the Columbia Mountains, snow means powder. Our tenure receives an average of 40 to 60 feet (12 to 18 metres) of snowfall per year. Snow starts falling in September, serving up early season turns in December and fresh powder until April. Average temperatures at tree line are about -7°C (20°F)."

"Eagle Pass Heliski lies in the heart of Canada's Monashee Mountains. Our exclusive area encompasses almost 390,000 acres of British Columbia wilderness. Known for the remarkably deep snow, the western slope of the Monashees is the first mountainous area east of BC’s Coast Mountains where you’ll find near-coastal amounts of snow with cooler interior temperatures resulting in the incredibly deep dry powder that heliskiers return for.
This high quality snow, coupled with perfectly spaced trees, open bowls and glaciers of the Monashees, result in what many experienced heliskiers consider being the most exciting deep powder helicopter skiing in the world. The Monashees are one of the premier places to enjoy Heliskiing and boarding. Each winter massive storms brew in the Pacific Ocean and when they reach the Monashees they deliver the consistent, super-dry crystalline snow that Revelstoke is famous for. With our combination of wide-open bowls, chutes, treed slopes, and high alpine, Eagle Pass is the ideal environment for your ultimate Heliskiing adventure.
The Monashee Range is famous for its tree skiing. Here at Eagle Pass Heliski we have discovered huge slopes of naturally well-spaced trees that are perfect for Heliskiing and Heliboarding. Gliding through continuous openings between 120-foot tall spruce and alpine firs or through massive 800 year-old cedars is a magical experience that stays with you for a lifetime."
