Heli Skiing

Signature Heli-Skiing Trips

We offer three signature heli-skiing trips, and custom trips are available, so that you can design an adventure that works best for your budget, schedule, and desires. Whatever you choose, all of our trips have one thing in common: you'll be flying in our Astar B3 helicopter to remote Landing Zones in the North Cascades to ski or ride thousands upon thousands of vertical feet of pristine powder in regions that are virtually inaccessible except by helicopter. This is why we have so many loyal guests who return year after year. We invite you to join us in Mazama to experience the thrill of heli-skiing with North Cascade Heli.

Heli-Assisted Backcountry Touring

Eliminate The Long Approach

Our heli-assisted backcountry touring program continues to gain popularity every season and often sells out well in advance. This affordable program gives skiers and riders on alpine touring and splitboard gear quick access to extraordinary backcountry terrain in the North Cascades. The helicopter delivers you to a backcountry zone and thus eliminates the long energy-draining approach and egress. The heli bump means you'll have plenty of energy to rack up multiple ascents and descents all day long at whatever pace you wish. Our knowledgeable and highly-experienced guides lead you to the goods while covering backcountry travel skills. After ripping powder all day the helicopter whisks you back to the Heli Barn. You've got to find out for yourself why this program is in demand!

Backcountry Yurt

Reserve Our Coveted Barron Yurt

Backcountry yurts are all the rage, and our Barron Yurt is one of the most coveted in North America. Strategically located smack dab among a cluster of peaks, ridgelines and valleys deep in the North Cascades at 6,000 feet, the Barron Yurt is your gateway to excellent touring right out the door, with plenty of powder and no competition for lines. The Barron Yurt includes numerous amenities to ensure you'll be cozy, warm, well fed, and satisfied following full days of touring and shredding fresh powder in a sublime backcountry setting. You'll get a pure guided backcountry touring experience with the convenience of helicopter access to and from the yurt. You'll want to reserve this program far in advance. In fact, 2018 dates are sold out, and we're now reserving for 2019!
