We did this for my fathers birthday and it was worth every penny! There are three offerings at Whistler Heli Ski, a three run, four run and six run package. We did the six run package which is done in a smaller helicopter and is therefore a smaller group. I strongly suggest this package if you are a strong skier... More

I would recommend this day / trip for any intermediate skier and above. The location was awesome, the power was deep, and the staff / guides were excellent. The routes were chosen based on abilities and the entire experience was perfect from beginning to end. Everyone was very safety conscience while we all had fun!

I can't say enough good things about my first heli-skiing experience with Whistler Heli-Skiing. Helene Steiner was the consummate professional as our guide. With over 20 years of experience, she exuded a calm confidence while being laid-back and humorous. The safety briefing and practice on how to use our avalanche transceiver, and avalanche safety and rescue procedures was fun and... More

I got lucky enough I was able to get on one of Whistler Heli-Skiing helicopters in mid-March. Bad weather unfortunately allowed them to fly only on a handful of days in the first 15 days of mid-March 2016. On the other hand that meant a lot of fresh snow, great powder conditions which is a dream come true for the... More

We hit the jackpot weather wise, the alpine received tons of new snow and we flew on an absolute bluebird day!!!

Bluebird days are the best - and we are so happy to hear that you were one of the lucky ones to enjoy it in March! Sorry to hear that the terrain wasn't what you had hoped for, our guides are highly trained and have reasons for terrain selection due to backcountry hazards.

Two dads and three sons enjoyed a stunningly spectacular day skiing at Overseer Mtn courtesy of Whistler Heli-Ski and guide extraordinaire John. Avalanche training, equipment, the helicopter were all first class.
