Canada Heliskiing Snow Terrain

Snow & Terrain

We Fully Plan on Leaving You High & Dry

Our vast terrain lies in a transition zone between the Coastal Mountains and the dry rolling Fraser Plateau in the South Chilcotin Mountains, providing magnificent mountains, an abundance of dry snow and plenty of sunshine.

Tyax Resort & Heliskiing has more skiable terrain than other popular resorts. Our 830,000 acres of ski terrain is 200 times greater than Vail, Colorado, and 10 times greater than Les Trois Vallées, France. With over 375 existing runs, and more being added every year, you’ll never run out of discoveries.

Annual snowfall in our region varies between 5 – 25 metres, with an average snowpack of 1.5 meters in the east to about 8 meters in places out west. The areas we more commonly ski average 2 – 3.5 meters of settled snow. The best skiing conditions require an abundance of dry snow, and our seasoned heliski guides know where all the best stashes are hiding.
