Heliskiing in the Cadwallader #1125
Back To Discussion List Written: 2004.02.27 by: Scott Nelson

I did a ski touring trip in the Prospector Area (East of Phelix Creek) this past weekend where we encountered some heli skiing. Mostly it wasn't a big deal, as they heliskiers only did each run once leaving plenty of space for us in the big alpine bowls, but this area is quite close to the Phelix Hut, and makes a very good weekend trip out of Vancouver. While skiing in the area over New Years I also noticed a fair amount of helicopter activity. Still, not nearly as bad as in garibaldi park. Does anyone know which company operates up there. I was thinking we could give them a heads up if going into the area again and maybe they could go somewhere else for the day.

This area is not in Tyax (TLH Helisking) Tenure, i believe its in Coast Range Heliskiing's Tenure.

I've seen Helicopters flying north into the Cadwallader in the morning, so I don't think it's Tyax. If you look at a map, this area is actually closer to Pemberton than it is to Tyaughton Lake.

I believe it is Tyax. Googling for tyax heli-skiing should get you there.
