The Most Unique Heli Lodge in Canada

Are you looking for something a little bit different, yet awesome?

How does this sound; ski first descents, in British Columbia's largest mountains, with the largest vertical runs in Canada while staying in single occupancy rooms at a ranch? Pretty epic, eh?

Uncharted Territory in the Wild West

Enjoy huge unexplored peaks, first descents as far as the eye can see, and genuine home-style ranch hospitality. With a maximum capacity of eight people per week, this is the perfect place for a close group of friends. You can book the entire facility and have a whole mountain range all to yourselves. 

Our Pantheon ski terrain surrounds Mt Waddington, British Columbia's highest peak at 4,019m (13,186ft). A number of prominent Hollywood films including: “K2”, “Kundun” and “Seven Years in Tibet” were shot here because of the Himalayan scale of the slopes and escarpments.

The area is heavily glaciated, with thick forests and deep valleys guarding the flanks. The peak lay undiscovered until 1925 and was at first named Mystery Mountain. To this day the area is extremely wild and inaccessible, unless you have a trusty helicopter that is!

Heli-skiing in the Pantheons is a very unique skiing experience, and to date only a handful of lucky groups have skied here. You and your friends should be next.
