Cariboos Family Trip

Whether your kids can out-ski you or want to come in early, they'll have a day they'll never forget. Give them a taste of powder and at the end of the day, if they want to head back to the lodge for fun and games, you can stay out on the slopes.

Cariboos Fusion

Why compromise when you can do it all? Spend a full 3.5 days Heli-Skiing and 3 days heli-assisted ski touring with a fusion trip. Soar to spectacular heights and tackle challenging ascents that’ll burn off your daily gourmet meals.

Cariboos Powder Intro

Experience powder for your first time with just 10 guests, led by two professional guides. We love to introduce skiing in mountain wilderness to strong intermediate/advanced skiers or boarders. Three million acres is too much to keep all to ourselves.

Cariboos Powder Masters

The passion for Heli-Skiing never really fades, yet you’re wise enough to know that quality over quantity is what you want. Our Powder Masters program will keep you on the slopes as long as your spirit is willing, under the watchful eyes of three guides.
