Semi-Private & Semi-Private PLUS

Group of 8 or 9? The heli is exclusively yours


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

The Semi-Private PLUS package is a special offer for early season bookings (December 21 to February 8) where you book a package and we give you 1 free night of accommodation and meals!

  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 programs are similar to Private programs but are for groups of 8 or 12 people (i.e. 2 groups of 4 when staying at Tweedsmuir Park Lodge, and 2 groups of 6 when staying at Eagle Lodge), instead of 1 group of 4 for Privates. 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 than 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...or even sleep-in and have a late start, 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. 

For Semi-Private programs we use 2 types of helicopters: the A-Star and the Koala. At Tweedsmuir Park Lodge the helicopter we use is the A-Star B2 (or B3) with room for four people in each group for a total of 8 people, and at Eagle Lodge, we use the Koala which carries 2 groups of 6. 

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, Eagle Lodge can host 12 people, Pantheon and Terra Nostra Ranches can accommodate 8-9 people, and Mystery Mountain Ranch, our most intimate location, hosts just 5 guests at any one time!

Who should book?

Our Semi-Private programs are 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.
