Private Heli-Ski Transfer to Whistler
An airport transfer like no other as you heli-ski your way from Vancouver to Whistler
From airport to mountain, you’ll take a private A-star helicopter all the way up to Whistler, whilst heli-skiing incredible powder lines along the way.
An airport transfer like no other – whilst your luggage is transferred to Whistler by SUV, you fly over the cityscape of Downtown Vancouver all the way up the Sea-to-Sky corridor. Your helicopter lands on pristine ridgelines, where you click into your skis and heli-ski huge glacial powder lines. With nothing but fresh tracks and breath-taking views between Vancouver and Whistler, this really is the ultimate start to any ski adventure.
You will be heli-skiing in the legendary Sea-to-Sky corridor, from Downtown Vancouver to Whistler. Flying over mighty glaciers, remote lakes, dense forests and never-ending snowcapped mountains, this spectacular journey is so much more than just heli-skiing.
This adventure is available for a private group of up to 4 guests, looking to make the most of every second of their time in BC.
We can run this experience from December through to May, although between March and May offers more reliable weather, and highest chance of being able to fly. If your helicopter cannot fly due to unfavourable weather we will transfer you by luxury SUV, and any relevant heli-ski costs will be refunded.
What to expect
This brand new experience allows you to not only fly up to Whistler in style, witnessing some of the world’s most spectacular scenery from the sky, but to heli-ski deep powder runs along the way.
You’ll meet your pilot and heli-ski guide at Vancouver heliport and undergo a quick safety briefing before loading up the helicopter and buzzing over skyscrapers and towards the mountains. As you depart, your luggage will be transported to your Whistler destination by private car (which will also serve as your back-up transportation in case of inclement weather). Spend a full day heli-skiing the immense Sea-to-Sky backcountry, gradually working your way up the valley.
After a morning of fresh tracks, it’s time to stop for an alpine picnic lunch in the mountains. You chat with your group and guide and ask why all transfers aren’t like this? You soak up the endless views, before heading out for your final laps skiing pristine, untouched powder. The terrain varies from open meadows and steep forest to extensive alpine areas with glaciated summits – what a start to your ski adventure!
