Terra Nostra Guest Ranch

Unlimited Vertical Based Heli Skiing

Lodge Overview

Are you looking to ski and/or snowboard as much as possible? Do you prefer your dollars are spent on the ski program versus over-the-top accommodations and services? Then stop looking because this exclusive package is your dream trip come true!

An exciting addition to our array of wilderness heli-ski experiences, Terra Nostra accesses terrain in the Kleena Kleene valley, an extremely remote region in the Coast Range mountains, and an area where very few people have ever skied or snowboarded before. Join us, claim first descents and name your own run.

Situated on the Chilcotin Plateau, Terra Nostra Guest Ranch has the advantage of being on the less stormy side of the Coast Range mountains. This means there are more skiable days, and with an unlimited ski program, you can take full advantage.

Please note that for safety reasons, unlimited skiing and snowboarding is available from 09:00 until one hour before sunset or 16:00, whichever comes earlier.

Guests fly as one single group of 8 guests plus 2 guides in a private Bell 212 helicopter. Skiing as a single group has the advantage of eliminating any wait time as the helicopter is exclusively yours and only needs to serve one group.

The skiing is similar to the rugged terrain accessible from all of our locations. Spectacular, above-treeline terrain dominates, with plenty of tree skiing options when visibility in the alpine is limited.

Insider tip! We host just 8 people at a time making this the perfect opportunity to gather your group of like-minded friends. Come ski and ride hard and après even harder! 

An ideal location for younger groups that want a high-energy gathering and want to make the most of their time with exclusive access to the whole property and helicopter! Extended family groups may also enjoy this private setup. 

Guests stay in cozy rooms in the main log chalet building, each with its own en-suite bathroom.

Heli-skiing is not the only adventurous activity offered at the ranch. On a rare down day, or after a day of heli-skiing, guests can take part in a variety of Western Canadian activities including cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and target shooting. 

Terra Nostra Guest Ranch is located on Clearwater Lake which freezes during winter, making it the perfect place to go ice-fishing. The property owner and host Christoph, the Swiss Cowboy, is more than happy to take guests out onto the lake by ATV to try their hand at catching fish!

Another unique feature of the ranch is its Napoli wood-fired pizza oven. If you like, Christoph will fire up the oven in the morning. When you return from skiing in the afternoon you can design your own pizza for dinner later that evening!
