Depending on the weather, visibility and snow conditions on a given day, guests will enjoy anything from open bowls and glaciated runs to subalpine, glades, trees and cutblocks. A single run can take you through all of the above.
There are six guests in the group, plus two certified guides, with their own private helicopter.
Heli-ski guests meet at the Winston Lodge (in Kicking Horse village) at 8:00am for orientation and safety training.
One-day packages include 4000 metres, two-day includes 9000 metres, and the three-day includes 15,000 metres.
If heavy fog, high winds or extreme conditions keep you from achieving your guaranteed vertical, you will receive a full or partial refund depending on your package length.
Your safety is our number one priority. Guides are highly trained, experienced, and ACMG certified. Heli-ski pilots are some of the most experienced in the industry, and are very familiar with mountain flying in winter conditions. All guests receive a thorough but concise safety briefing before heli-skiing, so they feel informed and confident in their surroundings.
