Silvertip Lodge was opened a few years ago to accommodate private groups of up to 10 heli-skiers. It is locatred on the remote shores of Quesnel Lake and was originally built as a fly-in fishing and wilderness adventure lodge.
Silvertip's ski area in the Cariboos is spectacular, offering its private groups unlimited heliskiing, about 80 percent of it in trees, in an area more than half the size of Luxembourg . Few people have ever seen, much less skied, the rugged gloriously undeveloped mountains of this very remote part of British Columbia.
