"Northern Escape the best heliskiing experience"

If you are looking for an incredibly professional heliski company - this is your choice!  Why professional? Because many operators provide a decent set up with cozy lodges, small groups, huge and diverse terrain, plenty of snow, hot tubs etc. NEH offers all of the above and all in very good quality. But what really separates the wheat from the chaff is a well functioning and reliable team behind the scenes. NEH mainly works with long-term staff. The logistics behind the scenes of a heliski operator are super complicated. You have no idea what effort is required to coordinate all skiers, pilots, helicopters, the fuel and so on. You probably want to ski as much as you can without feeling the stress of the whole situation. Whenever a team does not work well together you might notice this with a lot of waiting, slow skiing, time consuming arrival procedures or mistakes in the daily routine. With Northern Escape and their well-trained team you have good chances of getting only the best experience in all respects. As a customer you do not feel any of the stress behind the scenes. At NEH, the "machine" is state-of-the-art, the guides are among the best: ambitous skiing and a relaxed holiday is guaranteed!

"Good company and georgeous, sophisticated food"

Arriving home at the wooden log-style chalets is very special at Northern Escape. You´ll be treated with some jummy tapas – maybe add a cold beer or some red wine? Thereafter you might relax with your ski buddies in the hot tub? Or even better – go for a massage? The lodging is a very important part of the whole experience. And the incredibly welcoming owners John and Jody plus their daughter Mikaela will make you feel truly at home. They definitely have a talent to create a safe and joyful atmoshpere. Good times - with interesting souls from all over the world!

"No down days, this trip is for the real skiers out there"

The good company, the absolutely georgeous and sophisticated food prepared by red-seal chefs and an excellent glass of wine provide the perfect recipe to help you recover for the next day. Remember - no down days at Northern Escape, this trip is for the real skiers out there! The snowcats bring you up into the goods even on poor weather and deep powder days.

Northern Escape just introduced some of the most interesting „Unlimited Packages“ in the industry: the Unlimited Package with a twist. The guaranteed vertical is increased as well. If you do not ski more due to bad weather eg - you get a voucher for your next trip. This means unlimited heliskiing with the otherwise risk of overpaying. All in all - a very honest company. Spend your bucks here!
