Just returned from my 3rd trip to Whistler, and my second Heli-boarding excursion. It's incredible. We opted for the 4-drop package, so we covered over 18,000 vertical feet and 17 miles. Your legs are gonna feel it! Great guides and vistas, and a tasty lunch after the 3rd drop. Completely worth the money.

Finally made it to Whistler on spring to ski in backcountry. It was a good intro to backcountry skiing and its safe. The guide had 29 years of experience and brought us to the highest peak of the region. Runs can last 30 minutes depending on your rhythm. Really good first time experience with the elite package (4 runs), but... More

If you want to experience the most breath taking views while skiing with a small handful of people alone on a mountain top then this is a must. You do not need to be an extreme skiier so if you can hold your own on most black runs then you are good enough to do this. In fact we had... More

I have skied for many years and have never experienced the sensation of crawling in and out of a helicopter to 'play' in beautiful fresh powder. A must in Whistler. Well done to all for the joy and fun and thank you to our excellent guides Jerome and Mike.

This is an almost otherworldly experience and we highly recommend it to anyone traveling to Whistler who loves powder skiing. It is an incredible feeling to ski/snowboard (or even just stand!) on practically untouched British Columbia mountainside & terrain. Amazing life experience - "you gotta do it." At the same time, the operation could not be more well-done, professional, organized... More

We were very impressed with our experience with Whistler Heli Skiing this March. Although the area had not had very much snow over the winter, the guides did their best to create a good experience for our group and find great areas for us to ski/ride. We had a great day. The guides were professional while still ensuring the mood... More

The winter of 2015 has been very unusual in this area. Warmer temperatures and rain has limited the amount of snow and that's not anyone's fault. However I would have appreciated being told that the runs would be shorter than normal cause there was less snow. As well, the snow was very hard and icy which made it much more... More

We were walking through Whistler Village after dinner and decided to stop in. I find the bunny slope to be challenging but nevertheless I wanted something cool that said "Whistler Heli-Skiing" on it. The staff was super friendly and I tried on several jackets. I purchased an awesome jacket with their logo and a t-shirt. I'm a novice skier but... More
