ABOUT THIRD EDGE HELI
Imagine standing atop a peak in interior British Columbia, surrounded by mountain ranges in every direction. As soon as the helicopter is out of ear shot, it’s completely silent. An experienced ski guide checks conditions, describes the run you and your friends are about to ski, then leads the way. You look down at a steep, fall-line shot lined by old-growth evergreens whose branches sag with the weight of fresh snow. You drop in and float effortlessly through overhead powder as you find the perfect flow. Just as you make your favorite turn of the run, you see a camera flash as you pass another guide. A Third Edge Guide plays sweep, in case anyone gets off track. You hear the hoots and hollers of your friends, as they too experience of of the best runs of their lives. The pitch flattens out and you ski right to the heli, your private chariot ready to whisk you yet another peak to ski another best run of your life.
Greg Harms founded Third Edge Heli to provide clients with days just like that. Whether it’s BC, Alaska, Chile, Iceland or Greenland, Third Edge can create the custom, private heli trip of your dreams. We set every trip up like we would for a professional skier or snowboarder. Skilled guides, private bird, no wasted time, no random slow pokes, logistics dialed. With one of the highest guide-to-client ratios in the industry, Third Edge emphasizes safety, ski experience and action imagery.
All Third Edge heli guides have at least a decade of experience heli-ski guiding. Safety is our biggest priority, but our guides aren’t robots. The Third Edge team is comprised of passionate, colorful, creative leaders who are in love with skiing and the mountains. Having an extra guide not only increases our safety, it also affords flexibility. Scoping a zone skier’s left and want to check it out? More guides means more options.
We create the kind of trips you want to remember, so we send you home with images of your favorite memories. On every run of your trip, on guide will be shooting photos with a high-quality camera. We even document the good times off-snow. One of our clients said he felt like he was on a Powder Magazine shoot.
Planning heli-ski trips involves a lot of moving parts. You need to trust a company’s ability to manage logistics. Third Edge’s full-time office manager, Cassia, engages with our clients every step of the way, from initial inquires to post-trip follow through. Which ski socks should you pack? No question is too small—we’re here to make your trip go smoothly.
So, are you ready for your dream trip?
