Unique Ski Experiences

Pelorus are on a mission to redefine exploration by offering distinctive and adventurous ski experiences

Words by PELORUS

We are always looking for new and creative ways to experience remote locations. With this in mind, we have been thinking about our favourite mountain adventures that we believe offer an unusual twist.


Break away from the borders of controlled pistes to carve your way down untouched slopes. High octane, adrenaline fuelled adventure awaits you in a cat or heli-skiing experience, as you are the first to venture down vast swathes of pristine powder in complete isolation.

Snowcat in British Columbia

Ride in a snowcat above the tree line of the K3 mountain before descending across wide open alpine areas.  Here, the varied terrain means that each line picked offers a fresh challenge and will see you carving long, swooping arcs before bouncing between lower trees.

Soaring over jagged peaks and rugged mountain sides in a private helicopter is also a spectacular means by which to experience the most remote skiing locations that British Columbia has to offer. Pick your spot and prepare to drop a new line that stretches way down into the valley below.


A vast volcanic wilderness, Kamchatka is a region of outstanding primal beauty and dramatic topography, rendering it by far the most unique landscape to ski in the world.

With expert guides to assess weather conditions and snow suitability, every moment atop this dramatic landscape is maximised.

Ski down the rugged flanks of volcanoes, soaring all the way down to the sea where you will find an MI8 Helicopter waiting to transport you to your next virgin slope. Gliding down runs of 2,000 vertical meters presents the perfect opportunity to bask in the grandeur of the surrounding peaks, making skiing in Kamchatka an unforgettable experience.

For those wishing to take their skiing to the next level, Pelorus have the answer with a world exclusive opportunity which will see you following in the footsteps of professional skiers.

With the entire valley stretching before you and the white canvas of the mountainside illuminated by pinks and yellows, you will soar through the darkness in a ski-suit that shines from the power of over 7000 LED lights.

This truly extraordinary experience will leave you with glowing memories and the satisfaction of being one the few to have tried it.
