My son and I spent an "elite" outing with Dale (guide), Dave (pilot), Daryl (guide and videographer) and Andrew on 20 February. Terrific experience - the entire team was very professional in their approach to training (in particular safety). They sought out the best snow and while the conditions were not perfect the entire team delivered the best experience possible... More

Whistler Heliskiing were pretty honest about the skiing condition, but not complete. The trip was not worth full price., The snow condition was very poor, no powder, just soft snow on the peaks (2400m) and hard/ice further below (1850m). Our guide gave his attention to the 6 German people in the group, so it was two groups in the group.... More

From booking to debriefing, fully professional thus straight-forward and guest-oriented, sporty team! Personally I could also profit from excellent quality (and advice!) with rented outfit. We did all planned 4 runs in sun and good light - despite the upcoming weatherfront ("PineappleExpress") with clouds by the end of the tour! This was especially thanks to the wise guidance of Helene... More

My brother and I did a 6-run tour last week - what an experience! The snow was average, but this didn't matter as we were treated to spectacular scenery and some fun skiing on a blue bird day. Our guide, Paige, was very professional, friendly and safety conscious. Despite there having been rain in the previous days, the team managed... More

Had Kirk as our guide and overall very informative and knowledgeable guide. The experience was amazing and I would do it again. I think the price isn't all that great for $1100 USD for 4 runs. But it's something on the bucket list to do so why not. Just be warn most likely you will end up renting their equipment... More

First let me state that much of my disappointment was in the snow conditions which are certainly not within the control of Whistler Heli-Skiing. Heavy, wet snow - not the powder I was hoping for. This was my 1st heli-skiing attempt and an item on my bucket list! On the positive side, WHS is professionally operated with a serious emphasis... More
