At age 73 my wife and I had some trepidation. Yes we love powder and have always been strong skiers, but we are old. Meeting our 4 three day trip team mates, four 55 year old guys, didn’t diminish our anxiety, but our guides Jeff and Curt were the magic elixir. First and foremost the skiing was sublime. The best. Fantastic. The best ever. But we were so comfortable with the guides and our group. When our fellow team mates wanted high speed and we wanted something a little slower we were comfortably accommodated. We will go again. A truly wonderful and remarkable experience.

Heliboarded 3 spectacular days with Purcell. This was my first heli experience and the fellas at purcell made it such a smooth experience. I'll definitely be back for more powder. The small group makes the operation feel a lot more cozy and efficient. Would have given more than 5 stars if I could. Super recommended.

This was my second trip with Jeff, Rudi and Randy. The first time (last year - 2 days) was just a taste. I had to come back and confirm that I had indeed smiled for 2++ days (which does not happen). But it happened again. If you want an experience to remember, this group will deliver it. It is top-drawer from start to finish, care and attention to even the smallest detail and top of the list is the safety component. You will not only ski in some of the most beautiful areas imaginable, you will also improve as a skier, become more confident and resourceful as a skier and it will leave you wanting more and more and more. It is addictive in the best possible way. You will love it. Guaranteed.

Bucket list experience!! I’ve done it and put it back on the list to do it again. Jeff was the most knowledgeable mountaineer I’ve ever meet. His knowledge of the ski zone is unmatched. This backcountry is his local mountain. He is a stickler for safety and truly is concerned for his patrons. That said he will find the fresh pow we all desire. My sons first experience heli skiing will not be his last. Waist deep pow all day long. The home made lunch was pretty good too. Homemade tea, deserts, and soup. The helicopter was immaculately maintained and pilot was very professional. We had a windy day and he tried to get us into some areas but when he thought it wasn’t safe brought us somewhere else. We also went on a day with high avalanche risk and Jeff knew where to go. He even called an area would slide hours before it did. Highly recommend this outfit.

Interior BC is a beautiful and rugged place. Experiencing it with your friends from a helicopter is just amazing. Purcell was well run, very professional, with safety 1st and a touch of the family business. Jeff and Rudi kept us in the terrain that allowed everyone in our group to be able to enjoy the day. The views and isolation were incredible. Memories forever. Can't wait to get back.
