Stay tuned for late season dates and deals
Prices are quoted ‘per day’ and do not include taxes.
Guests must arrive in Smithers for transfer to base camp on the afternoon of the day prior to the first day of skiing.
Guests will be transported by helicopter and/or vehicle then snowcat to the basecamp. Please note that the current Air Canada afternoon flight from Vancouver to Smithers does not allow enough time for you to arrive in Smithers and travel directly to Skeena Base camp that same day. So unless more flights are added, you should organize your plane travel to arrive in Smithers 2 days prior to your first day of cat skiing. For example for the February 13-16 trip: arrive on the afternoon of February 11 and spend the night in Smithers, Ski at Hudson Bay Mountain on February 12, and fly by helicopter from Smithers to Skeena Base Camp in the late afternoon of February 12 – and start cat skiing on February 13.
Guests will be transported by helicopter and/or vehicle then snowcat to the basecamp. Helicopter transfer from the Smithers airport to the Skeena Base Camp is an additional cost of approximately $450 roundtrip plus tax, which is not included in the cost of the trip paid to Skeena. Due to helicopter travel, guests are limited to a total luggage weight of 35 lbs, including ski boots. Guests are permitted to bring one set of skis or one snowboard which are NOT included in the 35 lbs. If weather prevents a helicopter transfer, guests will travel by vehicle and snowcat.
SKEENA CAT SKIING INFORMATION BOOKLET
PAYMENT, CANCELLATION & COVID POLICY
To secure a reservation, a deposit of 25% of the full package price must be received by Skeena Cat Skiing Inc., to be paid by credit card. Full payment is due by October 15 each year. In the event the booking is made after October 15, then payment in full will be required at the time of booking.
If you cancel your reservation prior to October 15, deposit will be refunded, less an administrative fee. If you cancel after October 15, and we are able to sell your spot to another guest, your payment may be applied to a future booking, less any discount given. Due to the uncertain nature of the Covid pandemic, we will be updating our Covid policy on September 1, 2022. However, at this time, our Covid policies and procedures will remain the same:
All guests are required to be fully vaccinated in order to attend a cat skiing adventure with Skeena Cat Skiing, and proof of vaccination must be provided. Guests with qualifying pandemic-related cancellations may be able to use their full payment as a credit towards a future booking, subject to availability. All guests must read and understand the liability release below prior to booking.
ARRIVE EARLY: SMITHERS SKI PACKAGES
If you are flying to Skeena, we suggest adding a few days to your experience to explore other adventures in the area. Everyone travelling for any ski holiday in BC should NOT travel on a tight schedule. For example, a weather delay in Chicago will mean you miss your connection to Vancouver and then are late for your holiday. Put in a ‘buffer’ day in your travel plans, and enjoy the local ski hill prior to your cat skiing holiday.
Contact us for inquiries on ski holiday packages with Skeena and Hudson Bay Mountain.
