Wow What incredible experiences I had at Whisper Ridge this winter. It was so good I went 3 times this season. Nicolette made it all happen smoothly. The staff makes you feel welcomed and very comfortable. Their rental selection is right on Max is the man. Just sit back and relax you are in good hands. The guides hooked us up. Cant say enough about this place. Just come with an open mind and it will be alllllll good. See you next winter.

A friend and I booked two days of heli-skiing with Whisper Ridge to celebrate our 40th birthdays this year. Everyone at WR was so friendly and a big part of why the experience was so enjoyable. Special thanks to Nicolette and Cory for making it all happen and our absolutely pro guides Wes, Vince and JT, pilot Cody and everyone else that makes Whisper Ridge tick. With limited snow 3 weeks prior to the trip, there was a lot of negative expectations from others in the area but we still had a 2 great days of heli-skiing. Each day with several untracked descents with quality pow and 7 runs each day. We also did some exploring and joined Wes on a first descent of a face on the WR property, not great snow on that run but a 1st descent made for a major highlight of the trip. I would have liked to get a wider range of more challenging terrain but steeper and more exposed options were not accessible due to snow quality and avalanche concern. We still had an absolute blast and would definitely recommend the experience to anyone considering it. Only complaint: I know there is a ton of prep time that goes into any day of guided heli-skiing but I really would've appreciated an earlier start to allow for a few more runs each day, more accurately reflecting the WR website information. Something to consider: The first day we were supposed to fly brought low clouds and freezing rain that led the pilot Cody to call it off. WR was kind enough to provide us with PowMow tickets so we were still able to ski all day. Luckily, we had left an extra open day in our schedule to account for weather so we were able to fly the next two days. I would strongly suggest planning extra/alternative days, particularly for heli, but also for cat skiing if/when weather doesn't cooperate. Thank you Whisper Ridge again for an unforgettable experience!

Maybe I didn't understand what I was booking when I first set it up, but I expected the cats to be filled with other skiers of similar skill level, resulting in more difficult terrain for the higher level skiers. But it was a mixed group of kids / families, elderly skiers, and money skiers with little to no experience. The terrain was gradual and overall a little boring, the runs were fairly short. The guides were great for the most part, and did find us some good snow both days I went out, they made the best of the conditions we had. But for the price vs. the terrain you get to experience and the number of runs you get to do, it was not worth it. It was worth maybe 1/2 or 1/3 of what I actually spent.

Nicollette trip contact was off the charts in her care and set up of the trip . We ended up in odd weather patterns but they diverted to another location that turned out to be fantastic . Guides Eve and Charlie were helpful and responsive . I can fully recommend their whole crew. The conditions were not ideal but trip turned out to be awesome . Fun Back Country Skiing
