Eagle Pass Heliskiing

Eagle Pass Heliskiing

Eagle Pass Heliskiing lies in the heart of the best helicopter skiing in Canada – The Monashee Mountains. Your guides pride themselves on providing custom heliskiing to small groups of four, with an emphasis on skiing hard all day!

Eagle Pass uses A-Star helicopters, which allow you to ski in small groups of 4. Skiing and boarding with small groups means pursuing more complex and challenging terrain.

The Heliskiing

The terrain offers a total spectrum of alpine bowls, chutes and spines, tree line chutes, pillows and perfectly natural spaced trees. All of Eagle Pass certified guides guide to the ability of the group and are not afraid of ripping steep lines with the right group.

Eagle Pass’ tenure is known for remarkably deep snow. Because the west slope of the Monashees is the first mountainous area east of BC’s Coast Mountains, they get 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. Just ask anyone who has been here, watch a ski film, or read a magazine. The Monashees are truly in a class all their own.
