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 Goods… and we’re not talking about the Powder

Great Canadian Heli-Skiing offers some of the best terrain and snow, great guides, and superb helicopter pilots. Pair that with unlimited vertical and small groups of four, and you’ve got a recipe for a perfect heli-skiing vacation... or do you?Realistically, you’ll only be spending 6-8 hours a day in the deep white powder, another 8 sleeping... so that leaves 8 full hours to be entertained.A typical day at Great Canadian Heli-Skiing includes a morning guided stretching class before breakfast to prepare your body for the day... and help it recover from the day prior. Most of our guests make the most of the stretching class so they can make the most of their ski day.[caption id="attachment_4851" align="alignnone" width="300"]Gotta fuel up for a day that starts like this!

Our pastry chef is second to none and a smorgasbord of fresh and healthy food is available for every appetite and diet. Perhaps the best part of breakfast, especially in the early winter, is watching the sun illuminate the mountains on a clear day.[caption id="attachment_4796" align="alignnone" width="300"]What a sight to wake up to!

The boot room becomes the perfect après ski story-sharing zone as we play videos and photos from your previous days on the big screen TV. Drinks and snacks round out the scene.[caption id="attachment_4856" align="alignnone" width="200"]Chef Stefano Leone's apres platters are a work of art.

Dinner in the lodge is a grand affair, especially with the large windows revealing perfect views of the mountain sunsets. Our award-winning chef prepares specialities of wild game and locally raised or foraged foods.[caption id="attachment_4453" align="alignnone" width="300"]05012016 (1 of 3) Our cozy sauna in a blanket of white.[/caption]After dinner the Wooly Toque lounge is the social occasion of choice.
