UNIQUE. LUXURIOUS. CUSTOM
Less waiting. More skiiing.
We would like to present ‘Tyax’ – our partner for all unforgettable world-class heliskiing adventures in the heart of the British Columbia backcountry. With nearly one million acres of terrain, over 375 mapped runs, and an average annual snowfall of up to 25 metres (82 feet), every day offers a new adventure and powder to explore.
The TYAX Difference.
Most heliskiing operations have multiple groups using a single helicopter. Not at Tyax, where guests revel in the fact that their group is the only one using the heli! This translates to much less waiting and more skiing. To top it off, all packages include Unlimited Vertical. That is where guests do not incur additional charges to ski more once they’ve skied more than the guaranteed amount of skiing in each package. Awesome.
Single group per helicopter + Unlimited Vertical = The Tyax Difference.
One of the most easily accessed heliskiing operations in Canada.
With a short 2.5-hour ground transfer from Vancouver (YVR) airport, followed by a 20-minute helicopter flight, international guests arrive at Tyax Lodge with ease and plenty of time to relax prior to hitting the slopes the following morning.
Whether you want big mountain riding, rolling blankets of fresh snow or wind lips to air off, our seasoned, expert guides will find it for you.
Tyax’s 830,000 acres of ski terrain lies in a transition zone between the Coastal Mountains and the dry rolling Fraser Plateau in the South Chilcotin Mountains. This area provides magnificent landscapes, an abundance of dry snow and plenty of sunshine. With an average run vertical of 750 meters and dozens of runs over 1,000 meters, skiing 7,000-10,000 meters a day is common at Tyax.
At Tyax, your safety and comfort is never sacrificed. Regardless of group size (4-10 guests) we fly Bell 212 helicopters with just a single group in each helicopter. These agile twin engine rotary machines provide additional safety and offer spacious cabins for guests to rest between each incredible ski run. The maximum number of helicopters flying during any given week is only four; guests will rarely see another group or aircraft during their days in the alpine.
Our Unlimited Platinum Package includes unlimited vertical heliskiing and single group service, with every aspect taken to the highest level.
Exclusivity is paramount in this unique package. Indulge yourself and your guests with your own service team including a concierge, massage therapist and chef at your own luxurious, private chalet.
With our Platinum Package you will have access to an exclusive helicopter including your very own pilot and two guides, as well as private, return heli-transfers from Vancouver.
Complete your bucket list and create unforgettable memories.
With our Unlimited Single Group packages you’ll enjoy single group heliskiing and guaranteed vertical, with no limits. This is the Tyax promise.
At Tyax, each helicopter, pilot, and two guides are dedicated solely to one group for the entire duration of their stay. Single group means more skiing, less waiting, and more flexibility.
Our guests come to ski a ton of vertical. We safely provide a premium heliskiing experience and deliver all the skiing we can, day after day. You never pay more for additional turns, and if poor weather or other issues beyond our control result in not meeting our guaranteed vertical, a refund will be issued.
It’s that simple
After an amazing day of heliskiing, a warm fire and a cold drink start to look pretty good. Now add a hot tub and a three-course meal. A single-malt whiskey and a game of billiards. Perhaps a massage? It doesn’t get any better than this.
In addition to a full-service spa, an incredible dining experience and relaxing guest rooms, Tyax Lodge also boasts a lounge and bar with fireplace, a comfortable den, a full-service ski shop and a gift shop that features a range of high-quality ski wear and accessories.
Perched against the lakeside wilderness of Tyaughton Lake and the Chilcotin mountains, the lodge evokes a sense of comfortable charm unlike anything you’ve ever experienced.
