Stop Dreaming, Start (Heli)Skiing.

Last Frontier Heliskiing

You’ve spent years prioritizing snow in your life; from winter vacations to weekend routines. Snow has shaped relationships and bounded you to a culture and community of outdoor enthusiasts. First Stop Board Barn is dedicated to keeping you inspired and ready for the next adventure. We’re stoked to introduce you to Last Frontier Heliskiing.

Why Last Frontier Heliskiing?

  • The Largest Single Heliski Area in the World
  • Average 49 - 82 feet of annual snowfall!
  • Small Groups of 4
  • Remote Lodging in Northern British Columbia
  • 4, 5, 7 and 10-Day Trips
  • Huge Variety of Terrain - Alpine Bowls, Glaciers, Glades, Trees, and Everything in Between

    If you are looking for consistently deep snow and endless vertical in some of the most remote mountains on earth, few places in the world can compare to Last Frontier Heliskiing. We offer a true wilderness heliski experience at our two lodges in northwest British Columbia. With annual snowfall ranging from 15 to 25 metres and the single largest heli-ski tenure in the world, Last Frontier Heliskiing will satisfy your hunger for skiing untouched slopes in small groups of 4 guests. Wide-open, high alpine terrain and endless tree runs give almost limitless choice for skiers and boarders alike. When you return to our lodges after a day in the mountains, cozy accommodation, well thought out amenity areas, great food and an enthusiastic crew, ensure you are recharged for the next day’s adventures.

    Our operations crew, guides, helicopter pilots and lodge staff share a passion for the mountains. We all love to ski and ride, and we bring that energy to every aspect of our organization. Since our world began in 1996, Last Frontier has been exclusively focused on small group heliskiing. Small groups offer several advantages including less waiting and more skiing, more access to remote terrain and opportunity for our guides to offer incredible attention to each skier and rider. 

    When in the mountains your mind will be at ease knowing you will be skiing with some of the most knowledgeable guides in the biz. Last Frontier’s guides are hand picked by our operational leaders who have decades of heli-ski experience. To keep everyone safe, every guest is equipped with a beacon, shovel, probe and ABS airbag.

    4, 5, 7 or 10 day trips are offered from both lodges as well as the signature Safari Tour which takes in both locations.

    All tours include:

    • Accommodation and meals at our two bases of operation (Ripley Creek & Bell 2 Lodge)
    • Guide services, use of powder skis and poles, avalanche transceivers and ABS airbags.
    • Guaranteed vertical (varies depending on length of trip).
    • Return ground transfers from Smithers or Terrace, BC.

    Go on your own or join our crew in 2024

    Whether heliskiing or boarding is on your bucket list, or you’ve tried to explain the unmatched experience of taking a bird to the top of an alpine peak with limitless powder lines, Last Frontier Heliskiing is worthy of moving to the top of your list. We are planning a 7-day trip (5 Days of Heliskiing) in February 2024 to the remote Bell 2 Lodge and have some seats still available.
