Hitch a helicopter to the wild slopes of the Canadian mountains in British Columbia for the day.

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

With exceptional backcountry access, its snow is characterised as light and dry. Snowfall ranges from around 254cm near the bottom of the mountain to around 700cm towards the peak.

If you have only one free day, then this is the ultimate skiing experience. Join me for a day of heliskiing from our exclusive helipad at the resort.

The vast ungroomed terrain present serious experiences and ultimate rides. 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 advanced terrain of a ski resort with confidence. And also have a good level of fitness. It is also highly recommended that you have previous off-piste experience, while deep powder experience is an asset but not required.

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.
