Heli-Skiing the Canadian Arctic
The Canadian Arctic
It all began with a birthday wish. As we sat in our guest’s office planning his 60th birthday, we came down to two adventures - a spectacular family trip at Arctic Watch or a journey with lifelong friends to ski one of the most remote corners of the Canadian Arctic. He chose both.
SKIING: We journeyed to the granite walled fjords of the Arctic cordillera at the northernmost reaches of Canada. Think north of the wall in Game of Thrones. It’s a place where the plunging glaciers meet sharp granite faces against the backdrop of the Arctic Ocean. A custom basecamp offering the highest creature comforts possible was designed and built (which took nearly two years of planning). Our guests stood atop unnamed peaks before clipping in and enjoying first descents down runs nearly four kilometres long.
