Description

Join me in the Columbia mountains for the ultimate backcountry experience.

Hitch a helicopter to the breathtaking backcountry of the Canadian mountains in British Columbia, and explore its stunning slopes on a 3-day trip.

Dive into the incredible wild terrain of the Columbia mountains, and ski from our exclusive helipad far beyond the crowds. After the day’s up, relax in boutique accommodation that includes a hot tub.

One day of heliskiing offers a great taster, 2 days give you the opportunity to expand the demanding terrain, while 3 days present the ultimate heliski experience.

You’ll get the chance to work more challenging slopes at a steady pace during the 3 days.

Based at the Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, just 14 kilometers outside of the town of Golden, it offers over 2,000 square kilometers of skiing terrain. And 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 3 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 strong level of fitness. Also, it’s highly recommended that you have previous off-piste, deep powder, and tree skiing experience.

About the guide

guide profile img

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.
