Untouched Powder with Heli Skiing in Whistler, BC

How would you like to be a powder skiing pioneer? With Heli Skiing there is still a vast amount of terrain to be discovered in Whistler, and you can be the first to ski and ride untracked powder. Let me put it into perspective. Whistler Blackcomb is the biggest ski resort in North America. It’s huge but its size pales insignificant when you compare it to the Whistler Heli Skiing terrain. Big mountain terrain offers an incredible playground — over 100 times larger than the ski resort — that is shared by less than 50 explorative skiers and riders a day.

What can you expect from a Whistler heli skiing tour? First, you’ll be met by one pilot, one fully certified professional heliski guide, and fellow heli skiers and riders. You’ll be briefed about the day’s proceedings and helicopter safety, and then pile in to the A-Star Helicopter, which is small, nimble, fast, safe and the most extreme ski lift you’ll ever ride. Flying high above the spectacular mountains, you’ll be informed of the surrounding area, which boasts 4,300 acres and five peaks, with over 40% more snow than Whistler Blackcomb. After being dropped off on fresh pow, it’s time for you to ski and ride those nameless runs …runs that will make you want to quit your day job, cash in your retirement plan and live in a motor home in our parking lot.

Powder Mountain Heli/Catsking specializes in day trips, bringing first time powder skiers to seasoned backcountry powder hounds to untracked, unhurried, unnamed, uncrowded, unbelievable backcountry terrain.
