An amazing 5-day heliskiing tour in British Columbia, staying at the cozy Ripley Creek Inn in Stewart, just in the border with Alaska. With an experienced team of IFMGA-certified mountain guides.
Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, Dec
Join us on this 5-day heliskiing trip starting every day from the Ripley Creek Inn, in the Coast Mountains, a location that offers unique heli skiing experiences in some of the wildest terrain in British Columbia!
The Ripley Creek Inn is located in Stewart, a small old mining town next to the border with Alaska. It is located 310 kilometres northwest of the small town of Terrace. The area is amazing, with a terrain that offers epic long runs on open bowls and glaciers as well as some of the most spectacular tree runs in the world.
When you arrive to the lodge from Terrace, we will have an informal welcome session to introduce you to the crew and go over the daily schedule. Every day, before starting our heliskiing tour, we will give you an update on the departure times and on the snow and weather conditions.
We will also train you on the use of the ABS Airbag and the electronic avalanche transceiver, and you will be able to practice some searches. Then you will meet the pilot and get a helicopter safety briefing. Usually the first groups leave the lodge at approximately 09:15 every morning.
If we are not able to fly because of unfavorable conditions, you can visit some interesting historic museums, go fishing on the Portland Canal, or you can either visit any of the three local pubs and mix with some of the locals.
Contact us if you are interested in this 5-day heliskiing program in British Columbia. You’ll enjoy all the confort of the Ripley Creek Inn and some of the most spectacular tree runs in the world!

I am very pleased with Explore-Share! This was my first international climb, and the communication and response time were great. Herbie is a very skilled guide and very efficient. The entire booking process & payment was smooth. I will definitely use Explore-Share again. Thank you.
I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.
Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!
Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
