What's New

Ready set …Heli!

Apr 18th 2013

Do you dream of shredding fresh powder? Of catching big air? Or are you a self-proclaimed ‘carve-a-holic’? Take the mountain less traveled and discover Heli-skiing or Heli-boarding in the Canadian Rockies. It’s the ultimate experience for advanced skiers and snowboarders who seek adventure.

Heli-skiing in the Banff/Canmore/Kananaskis area allows enthusiasts to forget about the crowds and trade in the chair lift for a helicopter. For those seeking steep slopes, long descents, and breath-taking views, it’s hard to beat the experience of Heli-skiing or boarding.

If you have little to no mountain knowledge but crave the best ski/boarding conditions, this is the perfect solution. Operators will whisk you away to selected areas, saving you all the work of hiking up the mountain. The helicopter will take you to the top of a mountain, drop you off and then pick you up at the bottom of each run.

There are a few operator companies in the Canmore area offering packages to fit your needs. If it is your first time heli-skiing or snowboarding don’t worry, an experienced guide will lead the way.

There really is no better way to ski or snowboard in the Canadian Rockies. Hurry up and book before the snows melts!
