NEH is a pioneer in the heli ski industry and has been steadily pushing the envelope in the luxury adventure tourism space since 2004.
“The World Ski Award for Best Heli Ski Operator is quite prestigious and we’re very pleased to win this year,” says Northern Escape President, John Forrest. “People have started to recognize our tours, terrain, and snowpack as the best in the world.”
Launched in 2013, the World Ski Awards aims to raise the standards within the ski industry by rewarding organizations that are leaders in their field. Votes are cast by professionals working within the ski industry — senior executives, travel buyers, tour operators, agents and media — and by the public (ski tourism consumers) online via the World Ski Awards website.
Sion Rapson, Managing Director of World Ski Awards, says: “Our winners represent the very best of the global ski tourism sector.”
Over the last 19 years, NEH has grown and evolved into an industry leader, with three luxury lodges, the lightning-fast Agusta Koala helicopter (aka flying Ferrari), snowcat backup for storm days and a culinary team of Red Seal chefs serving local BC cuisine and award-winning wines. With its far north location, on the edge of the Alaskan Panhandle, NEH offers some of the best, big-mountain, deep powder skiing and snowboarding on the planet in its 5,500 sq kms of exclusive terrain.
In addition, NEH is one of the few carbon-neutral heli skiing operators in the world, with a carbon offset program that benefits The Great Bear Forest and the First Nations living in the region. The company has a long-term plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adopt renewable energy sources, such as solar panels and electric vehicles to support its operations.
“In the last decade, Northern BC has really come into its own. The snowpack is reliable, the weather is good, and the terrain is spectacular,” says Forrest. “This award is a testament to our work and vision for where the industry should be. We intend to keep pushing the envelope to offer the best heli ski tours in the world.”
