Explore Secret Canada

Leave all the big resorts and the crowds in southern BC and Alberta behind and head for the hills in northern BC where you will find deep-dry-cold-smoke and very few people!

This tour takes in northern BC's hidden gems; Hudson Bay (near Smithers), Powder King (near nowhere) & Shames Mountain (near Terrace) PLUS an epic day of snowcat skiing with Skeena Cat Skiing and a full day of backcountry skiing/riding near Terrace.

This package includes a dedicated host & driver for the duration of the tour, accommodation (with breakfast), lift tickets  and a day of snow cat skiing plus (including guiding). And whilst these tours are predominantly un-guided (apart from the cat skiing & backcountry skiing which are fully guided), you have the option to spend some time with one of the local riders at each of the ski areas to get the lay-of-the-land and maybe they will even show you a couple of their hidden stashes.

The destinations visited in this region are quite spread out making a hosted road trip the ideal way to experience them; ski during the day and then relax in the evenings/mornings and let someone else drive you around.

If you are heading to Northern Escape Heliskiing in Terrace, this tour could also be the perfect way to warm-up the legs.

Ability & Group

You can join the fixed tour dates as a solo or small group or request a custom trip for your own private group and requires a minimum of 3 to run with a maximum of 10 and suitable for strong intermediates through to expert skiers & boarders.
