Sand Creek Ranch

The Ultimate In Privacy, Exclusivity, and Customisation

Lodge Overview

This charming and authentic fully restored 1960’s farmhouse is located on a working ranch in the heart Coast Mountain range and is as close as you can get to the biggest peaks in British Columbia.

Arguably one of the world's most exclusive and customisable heli-skiing programs in Canada, Sand Creek Ranch is our smallest and most intimate property, hosting a maximum of just 5 guests per week. 

This is the perfect location for a small group of family or friends looking to escape into the Canadian wilderness to experience a truly authentic heli skiing destination with genuine home-style hospitality.

This location offers some of the longest vertical descents in Canada! The alpine terrain is immense, and the expansiveness must be skied to be believed.

We access this remarkable terrain in a Koala AW119 helicopter. It is fast, nimble, and efficient. Guests work closely with their private guide team to customise their ski program and to decide how best to explore the millions of acres of jaw-dropping terrain.

There are world-class runs right next to the lodge; therefore, it is possible to keep flying time to a minimum. Alternatively, for those guests looking to ski where no one has skied before, it is also possible to explore deep into our massive tenure.

In 2022, Mystery Mountain Ranch was renamed Sand Creek Ranch to pay tribute to the property’s original name and heritage.

Fun fact, “Mystery Mountain” was the original name for "Mt Waddington", the largest peak in British Columbia at 13,186 feet (4,019 metres), which is located a short 10-minute flight from the lodge.
