Getting Here

Here are the logistics for your trip:

If you drive, please plan to be at the Silver King Helicopters base (250-877-1989) at the Smithers airport no later than 1000 on the day of your departure. You can leave your vehicle at the base.

If you fly, please be sure to arrive on the Thursday before your trip starts. We pick you up at the airport on Tuesday afternoon, bring you to your hotel, and back out to the airport for your heli flight. Most guests stay at the Stork Nest Inn (storknestinn.com). You can leave things you don't need at the lodge there.

On the Friday of your departure, you will be at the airport in time for the departure of the flight back to Vancouver.

No need to rent a car when you get to Smithers. We get you from the airport to the Chalet!


Christoph and Sean did an amazing job of always finding perfect lines for us. Burnie Chalet is in an amazing location with fantastic scenery and ski terrain. Wonderful touring with the best skiing of my life.
