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).

Getting excited for first tracks yet?

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

Every year at Great Canadian Heli Skiing we are fortunate enough to take out many guests on their first powder tracks of the year.  It is a truly exhilarating experience to be skiing down pristine back-country early in the season.  It is that same feeling that you may have had when you first drove a car very fast from a stopped position.  There is a rush of endorphins, time seems to slow down, your eyesight narrows on a point of focus  and your heart quickens to prepare you for what is fast approaching.

Taking a helicopter to the top of a mountain to start off a season is certainly a unique way to usher in a new year of fresh powder!  You don’t have any lines to contend with and with pillow drops and glade skiing you are sure to find untouched snow to call your own so you can leave your mark.  To whet your appetites for a great 2014 season we have added a video of the first tracks from last year.  Now all you have to do is imagine yourself in these situations…or better yet…come visit us!
