If you're a reasonably capable snowboarder or skier, with or without powder experience, you'd be remiss for missing this adventure. On the right day you'll find fluffy powder, steep verticals (which are manageable in deep powder) and among the most beautiful vistas in British Columbia. Dress as you'd normally dress, although expect a workout (especially if you fall). Rent a... More

Snow conditions where a bit sketchy given the preceding unusually warm and wet weather. The day was further complicated by high winds on most of the summits. However John our guide supported by the Whistler Heli-Skiing team and our amazing pilot Mark were able to safely sniff out and find some great powder runs to create an awesome experience for...

This trip was amazing! Our guides Helena and Ryo were awesome! Even though we had some very sketchy weather that kept us skiing the same peak for the day, our pilot Dave did a great job getting us to that peak safely for each run! The guides kept us safe on a loose layer of snow that was threatening to... More

My wife booked for us to go Heli-skiing as a wedding anniversary present, and what an amazing gift!!! The team are friendly and helpful, spending time to make sure all safety aspects are covered and that everyone is prepared for the day ahead. The rental equipment is of a good quality, and the tech guys make sure your set up... More

I had a wonderful day on Monday heliboarding with Whistler Heli. Lead guide Andrew was both knowledgeable and professional and found our group some of the best and lightest powder I have ever riden in my life. Andrew found the most challenging terrain appropriate to the current avalanche conditions. I have heliboarded a number of times before with other operators... More

My wife & I took the Elite package and skied with Kirk as our guide in the Bell 212. The snow, terrain & weather were the best we've skied, and Kirk's humorous and easy-going nature made the experience fun and fulfilling. We would do this again in a heartbeat. Whistler Heli-skiing is the best value for money in BC compared... More

This was our first heli experience so it may be a little biased, but it was amazing. I asked a lot of questions before booking, so I knew going in this was for the average skier and not pros looking for 55* spines. If you want serious terrain, its gonna cost 5/6 times as much. We lucked out and got... More

We had an epic day Heli-skiing. The team ran the whole thing super professionally, which allowed us to simply enjoy the incredible experience of skiing fresh powder all day! Thanks for a brilliant time!

Experience of a lifetime! The weather was perfect, the snow great and all the runs were just great. Our guide John was very experienced, the helicopter pilot always very accurate with his landings and we always felt safe. A must do when in Whistler!

The guides did a great job finding the best possible snow available on the day we were out even though they hadn't had significant snow in a couple of week. They were really working hard to make sure everyone had a good time and the best possible experience. If you are from Seattle or otherwise nearby / flexible, I'd wait... More
