Silver Tip Heliskiing Packages

Silvertip Heli-Skiing offers the ideal formula for heli skiing bliss, with high quality powder, a large tenure, and a remote rustic lodge.

Silvertip Heliskiing packages are for private groups (or mixed groups/solos if available) with options for non-skier partners.

The minimum package is for 3 days, or there are options of 4, 5 and 7 days. For each package you may also get an added half-day of heli skiing on your arrival day.

All packages include deluxe lodging at the secluded Silvertip Lodge, unlimited heli skiing guided by ACMG certified guides, all chef prepared meals, use of powder skis or snowboard, use of avalanche safety equipment including avalanche airbags, and gear for other activities such as cross-country skiing and snow shoeing.

Whilst packages are predominantly for private groups, opportunities for solos and smaller groups may open up to join a mixed-group if there is availability. Please make a booking request if this is of interest.

For information on the terrain and snow, and location, see the Silvertip Heli-Skiing overview.

Ability Level

You don’t have to be an expert to enjoy Silvertip Heli-Skiing, but as a minimum, skiers should be a strong intermediate (off-piste) and snowboarders should be advanced.

If you decide to book the lodge as a private group, you can bring non-skier friends and family to the lodge.

If you have any questions or want to double check availability you can make a booking request.

Typical Itinerary

Arrival Day at Silvertip Lodge

Guests fly from Vancouver BC, Canada, Air Elite terminal building to the Williams Lake Airport (YWL) in the morning. From Williams Lake Airport, a helicopter transports guests for a 45 minute flight to Silvertip Lodge. The Silvertip staff will be waiting for your arrival in Williams Lake to handle any final details of your trip, ensuring that you start your heli-skiing holiday as soon as you arrive at the lodge. From Vancouver International Airport (YVR), the estimated total travel time is approximately 2.5 hours to Silvertip Lodge.

Once at the lodge, you will be served a delicious lunch, and then the ski guides will provide guests with a thorough safety orientation. In the afternoon you can settle in, enjoy the spa facilities, and relax.

Ski/Snowboard Days

A hot breakfast begins at 8am.

At 9am the helicopter takes you up for a breathtaking morning of heli-skiing or snowboarding. Guests have access to unlimited vertical and Silvertip guarantees a minimum of 30,000ft/9,200m for a 3 day trip, and up to 80,000ft/24,500m for a 7 day trip.

Guests return to Silvertip Lodge an hour before sunset to enjoy delicious après-ski snacks and drinks, and the option of a dip in the hot tub, a sauna, or a relaxing massage. A gourmet dinner is prepared by the Silvertip chefs and served at 7pm.

Final Ski Day

On the final day of your Silvertip tour, breakfast will be served at 7am. Guests will enjoy their last morning heli-skiing/snowboarding, and then prepare to catch the helicopter to the Williams Lake airport. From Williams Lake you will catch the charter flight to Vancouver.

Silvertip Lodge

Silvertip Lodge radiates comfort and ambience amidst a wild and untamed setting. Its special warmth comes from a Finnish Tulikivi soapstone stove that produces a radiant heat. The atmosphere and flavour at Silvertip can be categorized as rustic luxury. The 7,248 sq.ft lodge was originally built in 1967 and has been substantially renovated and updated since that time.

The great room living area features high, western-style vaulted ceilings over a large open living/common area with overstuffed chairs, a billiards table, a quaint western style bar, and large dining area.

The decor consists of handmade woodwork, comfortable furniture, hunting trophies from a bygone era, and intriguing photos of the local wildlife, mountains, and recreation.

Up on the second floor, there are six charming guest rooms, all fully furnished and each with a private ensuite bath. Two additional guest rooms with private ensuite bath are on the third level.

The Spa

Discover your sanctuary within the spa building adjacent to the lodge. The hot tub overlooks the magnificent lake whilst the massage room, steam room, sauna and exercise decks are the perfect setting to renew muscles and prepare for tomorrow’s epic adventure. A full-time massage therapist will untie knotted muscles and free your fascia.

Dining

Great food and drink are an essential part of the Silvertip experience. At the end of an epic day, or to power up for the day yet to come, the renowned chefs create culinary experiences to savour.

Meals are served in the main dining area which has a casual atmosphere. The bar offers a wide variety of top-flight beverages and a first-class wine list is always available. The personal service will remind you why you made the journey.

Other

Wi-Fi is available throughout the main lodge. This is a Satellite system and is great for keeping in touch via email while at the lodge. It is not designed for streaming videos, downloading large data files, or video conferencing. Don’t expect the same speeds as you get at home.

Activities

The lakefront location gives non-skier guests plenty to do. Guests have access to fishing gear and boats for winter fishing; cross-country ski equipment with set trails through the woods or along the beach; snowshoe equipment for those who like to break trail; or take a leap off the dock for a customary polar bear dip.


A superb Canadian lodge

..chef cooked delights...

..ahhh, an the hot tub at day's end!
