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).

Heli-skiing: it’s worth it!

Posted by & filed under Heliskiing.

Just came across an article from the Vancouver Sun about helicopter skiing. The writer gives a nice description on why you should go heliskiing in Canada despite any financial or ability inhibitions you may have.  However we had to laugh with the choice of photos….the article is about heliskiing around Whistler, yet they use a photo shot with us (Great Canadian Heli-Skiing) which is about 9 hours inland (drier snow!). :)

Here’s the article: http://www.vancouversun.com/travel/Heli+skiing+worth/5859792/story.html

Foot Of Fresh Powder In Time For Heli Skiing in BC?

Posted by & filed under Heliskiing.

SNOW! The forecast is calling for almost a FOOT of new snow by tomorrow night! The cool thing with the heli skiing forecast on snow-forecast is we often get MORE than they are predicting!!! :)


It looks like La Nina is checking up on us again as we are about to start another heliskiing in BC season. Come  heliski with us this winter for some epic conditions that you can only get by helicopter skiing!

Level 1’s New Ski Movie ‘After Dark’ Filmed At Great Canadian Heli-Skiing!

Posted by & filed under Heliskiing.

Heck yeah!! We’ve been in numerous magazines recently (eg SKIING Magazine and Fri Flyt) , but we are super stoked to find out that a small part of Level 1‘s AWESOME new ski movie “After Dark” was filmed here at Great Canadian Heli-Skiing last winter!! Check out the trailer below …I’m guessing there’s a couple seconds from 00:58 filmed here. This was part of the UA MTN photoshoot (see funny article about the shoot in Freeskier Magazine: http://freeskier.com/stories/going-canadian-tanner-rainville-and-great-under-armour-heli-experience).
