FAQs: Heliskiing and Catskiing

What should I know about Heliskiing and Catskiing ?

Snowcat skiing is essentially the same as backcountry skiing, except you use a snowcat to get up the slopes instead of climbing. The sport was invented 30 years ago in the Selkirk Wilderness of British Columbia by a couple who had an epiphany while on a ski holiday. Since then the technology has improved and now snowcat skiing rivals heliskiing in terms of its efficiency and range. This sport has not caught on everywhere, but be sure to cut down on wait times for chairlifts and those arduous climbs where ti has. It is best to hire a certified mountain guide for any snowcat skiing adventure. They know the best routes to take as well as how to best prepare for an avalanche or inclement weather.  

Why should I choose Heliskiing and Catskiing for my outdoor adventure?

Avoid the crowds

Get out of the resort and into the backcountry. Snowcat skiing enables you to travel great distances in a single day, getting you out into the remote wilderness to enjoy pristine powder.

Reach remote locations

Go where normal backcountry skiiers can’t with a snowcat. Using newer models, snowcat skiing rivals heliskiing in terms of the amount of time you spend skiing and the quality of the runs you can reach.

Take the hard work out

Enjoy all the perks of regular backcountry skiing, such as remote locations, pristine powder and great views, all while avoiding the arduous climbs in skins. Not only will you save time, but also energy, allowing you to spend more time skiing downhill.

Great place to start off-pist without anybody. Elis Martis was super patient. Thank you.





Bonjour Anne-Françoise, La sortie de samedi dernier m’a entièrement ravi : excellente ambiance, baptême de l’air paisible, parcours de toute beauté sous l’œil attentif et encourageant de Peter, bref un grand moment de ski, en prime sous un ciel parfaitement dégagé ! Bravo pour l’organisation, en ce compris la navette de retour et la livraison sur place des packs de sécurité. Merci pour tout et….à la prochaine !!!



We were group of 3 with Herbert to the Monte Rosa drop off location. Our group has done lots of heli-skiing, cat skiing, and hiked routes. What we look for in guides is 1) safety 2) matching route to technical ability 3) advice in complex sections 4) having a personality and making the day fun. On safety: Herbert did a good safety briefing and told us where to position ourselves relative to his tracks, that was the extent of his safety. One of our group members fell part-way into a crevasse and was dangling on the ice wall, and he leisurely pulled out his rope to throw it down even after being told there was a very far drop. He routinely skiied out-of-sight of the entire group even in more dangerous sections. If someone had fallen through again, there was no rescuing them as he was the only one with the safety gear. On matching the route the technical ability of the group he did fine, the only part that was an issue was the very long flat ski out (he warned us about this, so we knew it ahead of time, I wouldn't do this route again because of this). On advice/tips for complex routes, he had nothing to offer, and was annoyed when you asked him questions, the only thing he said was "lean forward on your skiis", and didn't try to help anyone who had challenges. On the last part, personality, this was the worst. He was extremely annoyed that he had to help the person out of the crevasse, and even more annoyed that a snowboarder in our group was slower in the flat section. He complained to other ski guides that passed by that he was late for his lunch. When we stopped to break and took pictures he asked us to stop wasting time with taking our phones out. When we asked him if we should bring water (for a 5 hour ski) he said it's no necessary, which was crazy. Overall, it really put a damper on the entire experience, we spent a lot of money and came from Canada to experience this, and he nearly ruined it. He's a really good technical skiier, but has no patience nor does he put an ounce of effort in to making it fun or making people feel safe.
