What is

All heli-skiing operations will guarantee a certain amount of vertical feet/metres. At Great Canadian, we offer a generous amount of vertical (e.g. 30,500m/100,000ft for a week long trip).

Are you ready for the season?

Posted by & filed under Great Canadian Heli-Skiing, Heliskiing.

Do you ever forget what it’s like to be a child, full of wonder and joy? Here at Great Canadian the first turns of the season bring us back to that place every year. The energy is high here at Heather Mountain Lodge as everyone prepares to begin hosting the 2012/2013 season of deep powder skiing. Guides are out building landing sites and testing the snowpack as the powder accumulates. The skiing is already amazing and its only going to get better! Winter is here, and our connection to this special season is stronger than ever. The simple joy of feeling snow hit your face as you carve through the trees on a slope high in the Selkirks, sunlit and perfect, can’t be explained. We love our jobs, and we invite you to come see why! Happy winter~
