With the world’s finest heli-skiing, the liberty and thrill of having your private yacht and helicopter for up to eight glorious days await you.

Embarking on the MV Cascadia promises a heli-skiing adventure like no other, navigating the coastal shores of British Columbia. Against the backdrop of the Coast Mountains, guests are immersed in diverse terrain where annual snowfall ranges from 20 to 30 metres.
