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 on advanced and expert level skiers, however many lodges offer a wide variety of terrain for different skier and snowboarder levels.

A good level of general fitness and strength makes the experience more enjoyable - you don't want to be sat on the sidelines whilst your friends are skiing fresh powder because you didn't do your squats!

If you're still in doubt, send us an email or a phone us on +1(604) 902-2848 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$7,000 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 one year in advance to have the best possible chance of heli-skiing 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 you're looking for and we will try our very best to make it happen - we have booked guests in for the very next week before!

More advanced notice also allows you to put down a deposit and then pay the rest in manageable instalments to spread out the cost.

It's actually much easier to ski untouched powder than you would think - it's 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 at 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!

As long as you have a fairly decent level of fitness, you will be absolutely fine on a multi-day heli-ski trip. 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 return from their first. You will be skiing with people of similar ability and experience, or can even look at a private heli-ski group. If you have any hesitations or concerns, just let us know - our team were once first-time heli-skiers, and are now all experienced heli-skiers.

Whilst most of our guests book multi-day trips between 4 and 7 days, we can arrange custom trips up to 14 days plus on request. Please note that when heli-skiing over peak dates (typically January and February), there can be more down-days due to snowfall, so it is best to account for that when booking.
