Highlights

 
  • Ride the wild slopes of the Canadian mountains.

  • Explore the breathtaking scenery of backcountry Canada.

  • Benefit from having a fully-certified guide through the mountainside.

 

Hitch a helicopter to the breathtaking backcountry of the Canadian mountains in British Columbia, and explore its slopes for 2 days.

Dive into the incredible wild terrain of the Columbia Mountains, heliski far beyond the crowds, and relax in boutique accommodation.

Heliskiing for one day is a great taster, while 2 days gives you the opportunity to build into more demanding terrain.

We’ll base ourselves at the Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, just 14 kilometers outside of the town of Golden. Offering over 2,000 square kilometers of skiing terrain, the resort is also home to the fourth highest drop in North America, measuring 1,260 meters.

With exceptional backcountry access, the snow of Kicking Horse is both light and dry. Snowfall ranges from around 254cm towards the bottom of the slopes to around 700cm towards the peak.

Join me for 2 days of heliskiing from our exclusive helipad at the resort. And because we operate only one group at a time, the wild slopes are exclusive only for you.

Potential participants should be able to ride along all types of terrain at a ski resort with confidence. As well as having a good level of fitness. Also, it’s highly recommended that you have previous off-piste experience, as well as deep powder and tree skiing experience.

Get in touch now to reserve your place in the great Columbia Mountains for 2 full days of heliskiing around the Kicking Horse Mountain Resort in Golden, British Columbia.

About the Guide

 
 

I am a 20-year veteran of the heli-ski industry and the owner/operator of Purcell Heli-Skiing. I live in Golden, a town in British Columbia, Canada. Along with my father Rudi Gertsch, a UIAGM Mountain Guide with 50 years of experience, and a team of certified guides, I provide epic deep powder adventures in Golden's backcountry. The terrain offers all the dream characteristics for an amazing skiing experience: low-density champagne powder, trackless expanses of alpine, deep trees and hardly any other people.
