Lodge based heli-skiing FAQs
That's where we come in. We have stayed and skied at many of the best ski lodges around the world, each of which has it's own particular charms and quirks. We won't sell a seat on a trip just for the sake of it, we will get to know you and your dynamic before suggesting the best lodges and packages to suit your ability, tastes, budget and dynamic.

Whilst heli-skiing isn't suitable for beginner skiers, if you are an advanced intermediate skier or higher, who can ski blue runs with complete confidence and not phased by skiing most black runs (or red runs in Europe) then you will be able to ski at many of our locations. Some of our lodges are more focused at advanced and expert level skiers, however many lodges offer a wide variety of terrain for different skier levels.
A good level of general fitness and strength makes the experience more enjoyable - you don't want to be sitting on the sidelines with your friends skiing fresh powder because you didn't do your squats!
If you're still in doubt, give us an email or a call and we will be happy to make a better assessment for you.
It really depends where you go, but as a guide prices start at around CAD$7000 for a 4 day heli-ski trip in BC. Whilst this is expensive, bare in mind this includes guiding, fuel, heli-time, all meals and accommodation, and believe us, you will be looked after like a rockstar from the moment you arrive!
We usually suggest booking at least 1 year ahead of time, to guarantee you will be able to ski when and where you would like to. If you can give more notice, even better.
Having said that, last minute spots do pop up, so please let us know what works for you and we will try our very best to make it happen for you - we have even sent guests out the same week that they booked.
More advanced notice allows you to put down a deposit and then pay the rest in manageable installments if you would prefer to spread out the cost.
It's actually much easier to ski untouched powder than you would think, far easier than skiing chopped up powder that you will ski at most resorts. Paired with modern powder skis (or "fat" skis), you will be surprised how easy and "floaty" powder skiing is. Of course, it is still tiring to ski all day, so don't skip on your squats before coming - it will be worth it!
Not at all - as long as you have an OK level of fitness, you will love heli-skiing. Whilst it can seem like an intimidating step-up from resort skiing, most of our first-time heli skiers re-book their next trip as soon as they have finished the first! You will only be skiing with people of similar ability and experience, and can also opt for a private trip (sometimes for no extra fee if you are a group of 4!). If you have any hesitations or concerns, just let us know - our team has experienced heli-skiing as a first timer, all the way through to now experienced heli-skiers!
We offer all sorts of trip length with enough notice. Whilst most of our guests book book trips for 3,4,5 or 7 days, we can arrange custom trips up to 14 days plus on request.
