Come along the heliboarding experience of a lifetime! Join me on this amazing 5-day program near Revelstoke, British Columbia.
This is a great area for a full-on heliboarding program. With unique vertical descents, and an average of between 3,000 and 4,000 ft runs, heliboarding in the Monashees mountains is a quite an incredible experience. Between December and April, the snow conditions in this area is ideal: consistent, super dry and crystalline.
Also, the Eagle Pass combines heli-accessible, wide-open bowls, chutes, treed slopes – with treasure like huge 800 year-old cedars – for some interesting tree skiing, and high alpine drops.
On this tour we will be staying at the great Echo Bay Lodge, a great place to return to after an intense heliboarding day. Overlooking the Columbia River Valley, it is located just 8 miles south of Revelstoke.
Groups on this program are of a maximum of 4 snowboarders per guide. The idea is to give you all the attention you will need to enjoy a fulfilling program. For the duration of the program we will be flying a small A-Star helicopter, which gives us flexibility to choose landings and pick-ups for a challenging heliboarding experience.
Please note that groups on this program can include both skiers and snowboarders.

Unfortunately Trevor was ill for the original booked dates but he organised another guide for me, well known local Charles (Chucky) Gerrard. We met up the night before for a quick meet and greet and made a plan for the next day. The actual tour was absolutely unbelievable and I\'d highly recommend it. Chucky was extremely experienced and picked my comfort and fitness level flawlessly and matched the trip exceptionally. Seriously If you\'re thinking of a tour, get a guide!
