There are multiple heli skiing operators in multiple mountain ranges throughout British Columbia Canada each defined by terrain, lodging, number of guests, package details; including group size and personality.
No matter the heli ski operator, safety, environment and sustainability are a priority. With this in mind every skier & snowboarder looking to experience the world of heli skiing, should understand the following:
- Operators and tour packages are not created equally
- Be honest about your own ski / snowboard ability
- Terrain should match your ability
- Maximize your heli ski / heliboard investment, increase your physical activity
- Understand what it takes to get there and what is included in the tour package
- Make yourself familiar with added costs
- Know what to pack
- Trip Cancellation/Interruption Insurance – don’t go without it.
- Understand the difference between guaranteed vertical vs. unlimited vertical
In general, the heli ski season is New Years to the end of March .January is usually a colder month so when it snows it is light and fluffy! The days are also shorter, pricing is lower and guaranteed vertical remains the same. If you like the trees, January is worth considering.
Prime season begins last week of January and runs to mid March with pricing the highest for the season. Weather is generally more consistent, days begin to get longer but don’t be fooled Mother Nature RULES. The majority of operators offer lower pricing for the beginning of January and end of March.
