Deep fluffy powder abounds in the South Chilcotin Mountains and if powder skiing is your passion and you think you deserve the white carpet treatment, you should consider heading out with Tyax Heli Skiing!

There are lots of fantastic BC heli skiing outfits with amazing terrain and snow, and gorgeous backcountry lodges, but here are a couple of stand-out features of Tyax Heli Skiing packages.....

Tyax Heli Skiing offers SINGLE GROUP heli skiing with UNLIMITED VERTICAL! So what does this mean for you? Freedom and flexibility. You are the first to go out in the morning and the last to come back at the end of the day. There is no waiting for the helicopter or for other groups to catch up behind you. There is no additional cost, no matter how much you ski. You get to ski as much as possible in the confines of light and weather.

Tyax back up their UNLIMITED VERTICAL program with a VERTICAL GUARANTEE that surpasses the vertical inclusion of many other operators. Guarantees vary by package, season and available daylight. You will never pay more, but should you be unable to ski to the vertical guarantee totals you will receive a refund based on the unused portion of the guarantee.

Depending on which package you choose, groups can be either up to 10 with 2 guides or small group heli skiing with up to 6 guests with 2 guides.

At Tyax Lodge Heli Skiing you know how much the vacation costs and you can relax and enjoy all the powder turns you can eat, rather than worrying about how much each turn costs. And more powder turns equals more powder happiness!

Base Camp
Tyax Heli Skiing base camp consists of 2 levels of lodging depending on the package you choose.

For the mixed-group and semi-private packages, the Tyax Wilderness Resort and Spa Lodge is your home and is situated in a beautiful spot on the shores of a lake surrounded by striking mountainous peaks. The lodge has 29 guest rooms, a lounge, bar and den, and a dining room and patio overlooking the lake where you’ll enjoy fine dining. For even more relaxation after a major fix of powder skiing, the spa has three treatment rooms where you can enjoy a massage, a sauna, steam room, outdoor hot tub and a yoga studio.

If you choose a full private package, you and up to 9 of your friends have exclusive use of the 9 bedroom Spirit Bear Chalet located near the main lodge. Here you will be pampered with the attention of your own private team, including a concierge, massage therapist, chef, pilot, and guides, while residing in your own private chalet, and flying in your own private helicopter.

The combination of superb lodging and maximum vertical heli skiing will ensure you have the ultimate ski vacation that combines an amazing rush with superb relaxation. 

Where is Tyax Heliskiing Located?

Tyax Heli Skiing is based at the Tyax Wilderness Resort and Spa & Spirit Bear Chalet, which is 20 km northeast of the tiny town of Gold Bridge.

Tyax Heliskiing is 367 km north of Vancouver (by road) (approx 6.5 hours drive or 1:10 flight) and only 247 km north of Whistler  (by road) (approx 5 hours drive).

The lodge is easily accessed via a very scenic ground transfer or by air from Vancouver airport, and it’s one of the closest BC heli skiing outfits to a major international airport. The proximity to Whistler is also a major bonus, as it’s easy to start your vacation with a few warm up days at the Whistler Ski Resort.

Transfers to/from Vancouver or Whistler are included in the packages (except the 3-day Signature package which includes the inbound transfer only).

The Tyax Heliskiing terrain is situated in the South Chilcotin Mountains on the east slopes of the Coast Mountains of BC Canada.

Heliski Terrain & Snow

Tyax Heli Skiing has more than 375 named runs and 830,000 acres of terrain in which to play. Most Canada heli skiing has huge terrain, yet Tyax Heliski has 25% more than the average for a BC heliski operator, so there is definitely no fighting for fresh tracks!

The average run length is 750 metres and the longest run goes for a whopping 2,200 metres. The average vertical covered each day is approximately 7,000 metres (about 23,000 feet) so make sure your legs are in fighting form!

Tyax Heliskiing looks close to Whistler and the coast. Is the snow wet? No! Tyax Heli Skiing is lucky to sit on the East Slopes of the Coast Mountains, where deep snowpacks abound. By the time the storms roll over the high Coastal Mountains, they’ve cooled off, delivering light dry powder. A rainy day in Whistler usually means lots of snow at Tyax!

Tyax Guides

Like the outfitters who first broke trail to the Chilcotins, Tyax Heli Skiing guides personify a sense of adventure, camaraderie and mountain wisdom.

All guides have ACMG or UIAGM training and qualifications ensuring your adventure is a safe experience.

Covid Related T&Cs

Considering the COVID-19 pandemic, we have adjusted our 2021 booking policies to help ease the decision-making process for our guests that wish to book an upcoming heliski adventure here at Tyax Lodge & Heliskiing.

After September 30, 2020, if a guest cannot travel for their 2021 heliski trip due to travel restrictions imposed by his/her country and/or Canada due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Tyax will credit the full amount paid toward a future trip with us. This credit will be valid for one season and is non-transferable.

TLH Signature Heli Skiing

Randall Zomermaand
24/02/2017
Awesome, excellent and exceeded my expectations. The two guides in our group had excellent local knowledge of all the options available each day. The conditions varied each day but the guides were able to find at least 6 inches to 18 inches of new snow each day. The helicopters held 10 skiers and two guides plus the pilot. We were able to unload easily at the top of each run in less than 1 minute. The helicopter was dedicated to our group and was always waiting for us at the bottom of the run. The lodge was very nice, clean and the food was very good.
