TLH Story Starters – 2018 Special Heliski Edition
What Does 30,500m (100,065ft) Per 7 Day Tour Equate To?….Answer: Unlimited Vertical Footage
That’s just an average heli-ski 7 day tour package at TLH Heliskiing. Where every day is an EPIC day of unlimited skiing. Basically, we give YOU as much skiing as you and your legs can handle! Our terrain, located in South Chilcotin Mountains covers 83,000 acres, an area roughly 200 times bigger than Vail. TLH Heliskiing is far enough east to avoid the heavier west coast snow. It is here you will find dry, fluffy powder and plenty of sunshine. Our seasoned guides and pilots will get you there….from spectacular glaciers and bowls, to exciting tree and ridge lines, many runs starting high in the alpine glaciers and ending deep in the valley bottoms. We ski with only one group per helicopter – which means that guests don’t have waiting times for the helicopter! Heli skiing, heli boarding – after your long day guests enjoy the comfort and serenity of luxurious all-inclusive accommodations+ski+meals at Tyax Wilderness Resort & Spa.

Top 5 Tips: Heli-Skiing Fitness For Maximum
When preparing for your Heli-skiing trip, it's essential to keep in mind that you will be skiing for approximately 8 hours a day, for up to 7 days. This can be demanding on your body both physically and mentally especially when skiing at altitudes of up to 2,900 metres, and in the temperatures averaging -15C. You have booked your time off, invested a lot of hard earned dollars, and some people will have travelled halfway around the world to experience skiing at TLH. Don’t take any chances with your fitness and flexibility. A light training program prior to your Heli-ski trip will go a long way to keeping your body sound, and maximize your days in the alpine. Prepare your fitness regime in advance. Develop muscles to increase strength and agility. Cardio. Strength. Cardio. Stretch. Repeat.
