Find the
best snow in North America

North America is the largest region in the world when it comes to heliskiing. Heliskiing was invented in British Columbia (see our article on the  » history of heliskiing » in the Interview and Information section). This Heliski region comprises of 3 countries in our classification. The US, Canada and … Alaska!
Alaska is obviously part of the US but when it comes to heliskiing, every skier who has been there will agree that it is a place on its own. A very special experience that you will never forget.

Canada can be called the heliskiing capital of the world and rightly so !
With 44 heliski operators, or one third of the worldwide total, it is a clear leader in the industry. In Canada, you can expect huge snowfalls of light powder and a diverse terrain ranging from trees to glaciers . Canada can cater to all skier type, from the intermediate skier with no heliski experience to the pros.

In the United States, you will also find quite a few great options but mostly resort based heliski operators. It can be a great option for a family trip with young kids and also in case of down days.

Last but not least, Alaska !
With its stable maritime snowpack, Alaska is the ultimate steep heliskiing destination with incredible terrain characterised by couloirs and spines.
