This was, hands down, one of the most incredible experiences of my life and I know my husband will agree!! The views were breath taking and the Skiing/Riding was out of this world! Our guide Erin was awesome, and made sure everyone was in their comfort zone (which was nice because my nerves were def. noted). We had chosen the... More

Best Tuesday ever, got lucky with the weather, had a great guide, got on with the riding, highly recommend. Booking multiple days really improves your chances and the enjoyment of the experience, the second day was up and away with a small group and same guide.

It's a bucket list kind of experience and Whistler Heli-Skiing proved to be a great choice and there is NOTHING negative I can say. The orientation to the hazards of the high Alpine environment (Avalanche), safety orientation including use of the transceivers, probes and shoveling was excellent. The introduction to the helicopter and safety procedures was well presented and the... More

This is my first ever review and I am not normally a complainer. I do understand that in a situation such as heliskiing, safety is the primary concern. That being said, my experience with Whistler Heliskiing was a huge disappointment. Most of the staff was very friendly except for the guide that I was assigned. I was booked to go... More

We booked 2 days of heli-skiing for mid-January. The weather cancelled our first day and I was fairly certain our second day would be cancelled, too. However, we got lucky and were able to fly.....and I'm incredibly happy that it worked out! Whistler Heli-Skiing is a top-notch organization/operation. They have a great track record and have exclusive access to over... More

Thanks for the feedback. It sounds like you found the perfect bluebird powder day to get out there. Sometimes a cold bottom is part of the backcountry experience but we will take that feedback and try to improve on the lunch. We're happy to hear that your overall experience was a positive one and we hope to see you again... More

This was my first Heli skiing experience and definitely not my last. The staff were efficient, friendly and helpful. I went on the 4 run experience with 4 others which was a great size. We were all very similar in skiing ability. Due to the size of the group we were able to fly in the smaller helicopter which was... More

Best Christmas Day ever. The staff are incredibly friendly and helpful from start to finish. The pilot took us to a different location for each run, every one of them with breathtaking views and fantastic, deep powder runs down. Lunch on the mountain in the sun and a cocktail party afterwards too! I only wish our legs had been capable... More
