Heli-skiing in British Columbia
There comes a time in every skier’s life when you feel the need to try something new and experience something quite unlike anything you have ever experienced before. Welcome to the world of heli-skiing. The adrenaline starts pumping with the first thud of the rotor blades and you are whisked off on an exhilarating ride to places where vast field of beautiful virgin powder lie waiting for you. The common misconception is that you have to be an expert to go heli-skiing, but we have carefully selected heliski partners who cater for skiers who are at a good intermediate skiing level and feel confident skiing a red run in any condition. When it comes to taking the plunge and booking this incredible experience of a lifetime, it’s our in-depth knowledge and carefully selected heliski operators that enable us to get this right. It’s more than just taking a helicopter to ski off-piste for day, it’s about experiencing something utterly exhilarating with professionals at the top of their game, that give you the chance to obliterate the norm and experience the unbelievable. For example, Last Frontier Heliskiing gives you access to the largest single heliski area on the planet and small groups not only mean more room to make your fresh tracks, but the chance to ski at your own pace with no pressure. Gliding through blankets of pristine powder day after day is something that everyone should experience, at least once in a lifetime.”
