YOUR EXPERIENCE

IF OUR GROUPS WERE ANY SMALLER, YOU’D BE FLYING THE HELICOPTER.

Great Canadian Heli-skiing was born in 1988 when a guide and few heli-skiing guests wanted to re-capture the spirit and feeling of adventure lacking from operations whose only goal was to get bigger.

The 5 Reasons To Go Spring Heli-Skiing.

One of the most asked questions we get at Great Canadian is "When is the BEST time for heli-skiing"?  Well that's an easy question to answer with another question... What kind of skiing do you like?!! The best thing about operating between December and April is that there is excellent skiing to be had THE WHOLE TIME! Spring is an exciting time to book a trip, and here's why:

1. The snow is still incredible!

Think you'll be risking the quality of snow the later you book? Think again.  The snow is still fantastic in March/ April and checks off all the boxes for a perfect ski experience: dry, light and buttery smooth.  Our snowfall for the month averages almost 2 metres according to historical data, and as you can see from the current forecast, there's another storm on it's way. It's Coming! It's Coming!

2. You Get to ski the BIG Stuff!

With clear days and great visibility, our expert pilots get to fly out to some of our most exciting runs in our tenure.  Ski through some of the most dramatic landscapes and you'll get to admire your tiny tracks when you get your next lift to the top of another amazing run.heliski lines

3. Looooooong Days

Here's where that Unlimited Vertical can really pay off.  With so much extra day light to play with, our groups are often getting an extra hour of flight time which can truly add up to INSANE vertical numbers.  Getting your money's worth in March is a secret that keeps many guests coming back year after year. That magical sunshine. That magical sunshine.

4. It's good vibes all around!

The suns out, the snows great and hey, down at Heather Mountain Lodge spring is in the air! Our staff are finding as many ways as possible to make sure outdoor Apres is bumping with music and hearing the stories of the day.  Expect shot skis, sunglasses and BIG SMILES.

5. The price is right.

If you book a trip March 18 or later, you get our Endless Tracks pricing.  And getting a deal for some of the best skiing of your life is worth it! There's still time to book and we have dates available from March 31 - April 3!
