Private Platinum Heli Ski Packages

Experience world-class heli-skiing in Canada’s South Chilcotin mountains. Tyax Heliskiing offers nearly one million acres of terrain, over 375 mapped runs & abundant dry snow. Based at the Spirit Bear Lodge, you will experience fine-dining, a fire-side lounge, fully equipped spa & refined accommodation.

The 7-night private heli ski packages are ideal for those who want the ultimate in luxury combined with a private helicopter with their own group of friends.

The private groups can be up to 10 guests with 2 guides ensuring the utmost in safety.

The package includes UNLIMITED VERTICAL heli skiing, guiding, luxury accommodation, return transfers from Vancouver or Whistler, gourmet chef prepared meals, use of avalanche safety gear (including ABS backpack), professional massages, and use of powder skis and poles.

Tyax Heli Skiing has the great combination of ease of access from Vancouver or Whistler, and also being located out in the wilderness where you can completely get away from it all.

There are major benefits to the offer of unlimited vertical. Unlike some other Canada heli skiing companies where you get charged for additional vertical skied, unlimited vertical at Tyax improves the group cohesion because no one will be left out when they reach their vertical budget. At Tyax Heli Skiing you know how much the vacation costs and you can relax and enjoy all the powder turns, rather than worrying about how much each turn costs. And more powder turns equals more powder happiness!

Here is a short video of what you can expect on a Tyax Heliskiing package....

The Program

The Private Platinum packages generally run from Friday to Friday however custom dates can be arranged subject to availability.

The travel from Vancouver is the beginning of your adventure; a scenic land transfer up the famous Sea to Sky Corridor through Whistler to Pemberton, and either a land or air transfer into Tyax Wilderness Resort & Spa (which is where the Spirit Bear Lodge is located), home of Tyax Heliskiing. Or skip the landscapes by road and fly directly from Vancouver. The Tyax team will be waiting to greet you and bring you into the lodge.

After a brief safety orientation and some essential paperwork you will have the evening to settle into the spectacular private lodge and / or make use of the amenities over at the main lodge, including the spa, before your first gourmet dinner is served.

Heli-skiing starts first thing the next morning after a hearty breakfast and stretch class. Lunch is served in the mountains and each day after skiing, après ski is served in the lounge and bar. Enjoy COMPLIMENTARY massage treatments and body work, or some relaxation in the Jacuzzi, infrared sauna, wood sauna, or eucalyptus steam room.

On the final day of skiing, guests will return to the lodge at lunchtime and prepare for their departure. Air transfers depart from the lodge back to Pemberton, followed by a land transfer to Vancouver. 3 day packages depart from the lodge by land back to Vancouver after a full day of skiing.

Potential Add-On
Because of the proximity to Whistler Blackcomb ski resort, it is very easy to add on a few days prior to your Tyax Heliskiing Package. This is a great way to warm up the legs ready for the deep powder in the backcountry. Tyax can package this for you or you can arrange this yourself here>>

Spirit Bear Lodge

The Spirit Bear Lodge is an exclusive 9 bedroom ultra-luxurious wilderness hideaway located adjacent to the main Tyax lodge.

The lodge comes fully equipped for après ski rejuvenation with its own sauna, jacuzzi tub, massage room and solarium overlooking the garden & lake. Curling up round the giant stone fireplace in one of the large leather chairs, or soaking up the day’s last rays in the solarium overlooking the lake while your private chef prepares a gourmet feast, it’s hard to imagine wanting to be anywhere else. The Tyax Platinum experience is as good as it gets.

The Spirit Bear Chalet also features a surround sound and 50” plasma TV screen with satellite service, media room/play area on lower level, with seating, and TV, a fire pit and garden.

Complimentary WIFI is available throughout the building and in the rooms, however access may be limited due to the remote location of the lodge. There is no mobile phone service.

Tyax Heliskiing offers a sophisticated culinary experience that will both nourish the body and please the senses. To begin with, they make sure the pantry is well-stocked. Starting with a large buffet-style spread of breakfast favourites, they will send you into the mountains with the nutrients you need to ski hard all morning.

On-Mountain Dining
Every lift in the machine is another opportunity to grab a snack and some water or Gatorade so you will never find yourself struggling through a run or waiting for lunchtime or apres ski appetizers.

Lunch is served in the mountains; with a perfect backdrop for taking a break, you will enjoy wraps and sandwiches, alongside soup, hot tea, snacks, chocolate, and even hand-made espresso, freshly pressed for a shot of caffeine to start the afternoon.

Apres
In the kitchen there is a raised bar area where after a full day of skiing, guests will be served a warm Apres-Ski and be invited to spend some time in the lounge with a beverage before hitting the spa, resting before dinner, or hanging out with our staff right until dinner.

Dining Room
A 3-course dinner is hosted in the beautiful fireside 10 seat dinning room, creating the perfect ambience for an evening of delicious cuisine, fine wine and shared stories of deep and steep days with new and old friends.

Tyax menus are carefully crafted with an eye for variety and originality. Emphasis is placed, wherever possible, on using locally sourced ingredients and the chefs love creating mouth-watering and high energy meals to keep your palette happy and your legs strong. The talented and dedicated culinary team will delight you with exquisite samplings of contemporary western favourites.
