Do you ever dream of mountaintops? Snow covered peaks and endless blue sky? Your skis (or snowboard) in hand, a handful of your best friends – ready to take on a mountain. We do! And as much as we love sun and sand, sometimes the white stuff calls to us. Thankfully, there is where Whistler Heli-Skiing.
Introducing Whistler’s more popular heli-ski company! These guys really know their stuff and provide exclusive access to classic, big mountain terrain that every skier or snowboarder dreams of. Since 1981, they have been taking groups to the vast glacial wilderness by helicopters.
British Columbia in Canada is home to 90% of the world’s heli-skiing, with Whistler quickly becoming the most popular destination. So it’s no wonder Whistler Heli-ski takes the ‘most popular’ title.
After all, no one can know the backcountry like a local. So it only makes sense for us tourists to rely on them to show us around the glacial wonderland, vast wilderness and abundance of powder. Or ‘pow!’ as we say.
Whistler Heli-Skiing has exclusive rights to 54×33 mile terrain (or 432,000 acres) over 173 glaciers and 475 runs.
Just imagine! Floating through untracked powder, endless terrain and breath-taking backcountry scenery!
Due to the ever changing conditions, you lines change every day. Your professional guide chooses the best area to ski on the day, based on a number of conditions. They take into account all kind of factors from wind, temperature and new snowfall. Which means you’ll get the most ideal runs. After a few runs, you’ll enjoy a delicious lunch in the backcountry. After a few more runs, your day ends with après at the Bearfoot Bistro Heli-Lounge, where you can unwind with your guide and your friends. And relive all the best moments of the day with the video and photos taken for you on the mountain.
A sunny day on a mountain is always an incredible experience but add a helicopter and untracked powder and your day becomes truly unforgettable!
