We’ve spent well over two decades crafting the perfect heliskiing formula: small groups, nimble helicopters and access to 10,100 square km of prime Canadian wilderness. Having the largest single heli-ski area in the world means that we a vast array of terrain choices. Spanning two distinct mountain ranges, our tenure encompasses everything from towering alpine peaks to massive glaciers and a huge variety of tree skiing. At Last Frontier, less is more. Heli-skiing in intimate groups of just four, we’re able to maximize our time exploring the mountains. It doesn’t just mean you get your own fresh lines, although that’s always the goal, it means you’re more likely to be skiing or riding at a pace that’s right for you.

Last Frontier Heliskiing
The historic mining town of Stewart, BC has a heart of gold, though its riches these days are in adventures of another kind. Opposite the Alaskan Panhandle, the landscape is dramatic: glaciers and craggy, snow-capped peaks at the head of the Portland Canal, a saltwater fjord that runs 114 km to the Pacific Ocean. The area’s bounty of rugged terrain makes up the southern part of our tenure, and fewer than 300 locals call it home including Last Frontier. Along the town’s main strip, a hodgepodge of funky heritage buildings were given new life as the Ripley Creek Inn. There’s space for up to 24 guests, and with no two rooms alike, you may stay in a prospector’s house, an old clothing shop — ?or even a former brothel. Ripley Creek is about the bare essentials; hot-tub and sauna for the muscles, and soulful food served across the street at the Bitter Creek Cafe, which conveniently doubles up as our Bar. During downtime, grab a bike and explore Stewart’s quirky back streets, check out the museum or cross the border to Alaska to get Hyderized (don’t ask, just do it).
Ripley Creek Inn is based in the frontier town of Stuart, BC. You will stay in a funky, rustic hotel in the heart of an old mining town.
