HBC’s nomination for World’s Best Heli Ski Tour Operator in this year’s World Ski Awards came as no surprise, as the knowledge and expertise from their team is second to none. With over 25 years experience in backcountry touring and more local knowledge you can throw a snowball at, Founder of HBC Clayton Kernaghan, is a big-hearted local, with a passion for the Niseko mountains;

“After one day of sampling Sapporo powder, I knew I was in the right place.”
