Heliskiing Monashees Deluxe

Monashees Deluxe – Heliski in a huge terrain in the middle of the world-famous Monashees .

The Monashees in British Columbia are said to be the Mecca of Heliski for a long time. The tree-skiing in the world famous champagne-powder already has a legendary status and quite a number of powder-pilgrims are drawn to this exceptional destination every year. And most of those who come are very likely to return.

Since 2016, we are proud to be the only operator in Europe that offers access to a whole new area in the central Monashees which provides probably the world’s best tree-skiing in the world. In addition, a few meters above the tree line, a fantastic alpine terrain awaits you. An area of 296,000 acres (!) and endless heliski possibilities. Very close to Vernon, which gives access to world class shopping and entertainment but still quite remote and tranquil, we are accommodated in exclusive lodges with everything that goes with it. The helipad, situated just next to the lodge goes without saying. What else can we say – 6,000 vertical meters of course and the whole package and helicopter based on a small group. What we have to offer is very, very elegant.
