If you are thinking about going on a spectacular ski trip, you consider the BC Heli-Skiing experience, the trip of a lifetime. Whether you are new to Heli-Skiing or an experienced Heli-Skier, there is no place like BC.
In order to enjoy your Heli-Ski experience to the fullest, you must be a strong intermediate skier or boarder. All this really means is that you have skied regularly over the last several years and are fully capable of controlling yourself on treed ski runs; traverse slopes and can maneuver over variable mountain conditions. You will be skiing in the Mecca of Heli-Skiing: the Selkirk and Purcell mountains. This particular area is known throughout the world for its quantity and quality of dry snow and amazing terrain.
To make your experience the best it can be – relax, watch your guide and follow his/her instructions and if you are having trouble starting off, think about beginning in someone else’s track and once you have enough speed, veer off on your own. This will help get you the most out of your trip. You might want to leave your skis at home because most resorts in the area have skis for you to use. However, it is recommended that you bring your own boots.
