“Skiers Dream”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

As a person that has skied in all types of terrains across North America over several decades, this was truly a bucket list experience. I have skied deep powder above timberline but this was the first time I skied in a mountain range where the only humans were the 15 of us. We had a foot of snow the previous night followed by a sunny day. We skied the Spearhead area right behind Blackcomb. As with all things at Whistler, the service was excellent and skied 4 runs with Rob and 2 with Rich, while going through avalanche training by Vlad. I was expecting steeper runs but given the recent snowfall and spring conditions, the avalanche risk kept us away from some of the steeper stuff. I would rate the run difficulty as blue/black but with a lot of powder. The only set back was having a skier in one of the groups that just couldn't handle the terrain. With 1 helicopter servicing 3 groups of 5, you are only as strong as your weakest link, and she slowed down the pace of all 3 groups. The last 2 runs were awesome with only 3 skiers left from the original 15. This will be a ski day that I never forget.

Beautiful day of deep powder Skiing in the Callaghan Range. Vlad was a great guide, explained all about the safety aspects as well as anecdotes about the experience. Made everyone very comfortable about the skiing and made it a wonderful adventure. Fabulous day. Thanks to all the staff there.

“Blue sky heaven”
Reviewed March 24, 2014 via mobile

Flew last Friday weather perfect. Skied in Brandywine area. Guide Rich excellent. Plenty good powder. Skied one area that they had not been in this season. Three groups using the helicopter but very little waiting to be picked up. Après ski well organised and photography and video by Darell outstanding.

“Whistler Heli-Skiing”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

First the friendly working from hole the staff, the professionally, the languages, the information. It can not be better.
Than put together the group with people they speak the same languages and the same level from skiing.
Or ski-guide Helene Steiner was excellent in her job.
She was talking very good German, security from the day was a priority and also necessary that nothing happens.
Also she toke her responsibility over all, top!!!! This from the first minute until the last. This in combination with fun and pleasure.
It was to say in a couple words. The day from what we expect, the perfect day.
We ware with a group with 9 people.
Kind Regards,
