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 Snowy Season

THE SNOWY SEASON — December and January

The holiday season has fast become the best know secret in heli-skiing. Snow has been falling since October, and when the maddening crowds rush to join the other maddening crowds at the resorts, our terrain sits quietly, in its cold blanket of deep light snow for those who have chosen to escape the lifts.Cold Smoke, would be a good way to describe the conditions, one because temperatures tend to be colder (a daily average of -9°C) and two because the snow is so light it leaves effervescent wisps in your trails. It also tends to snow a lot at this time of year, a monthly average of 262 cm and 273 cm for both December (22 of 31 days) and January (21 of 31 days), that is addition to the 392 cm the total average snowfall for September, October and November combined.In summary, during December and January, winter may have just begun at your local resort, however we’ll be in the middle of it here at Great Canadian Heli-Skiing. Many guests come at this time of year because they like skiing gladed trees. There are higher odds of tree skiing at this time of year due to the number of snowy days we have.NEWS ALERT!! The Farmer’s Almanac is Calling for Epic December & January Snow see below:

“Annual Weather Summary: November 2013 to October 2014

Winter temperatures will be below normal, with the coldest periods in mid- to late December and mid- to late January. Precipitation and snowfall will be … above normal in the south [British Columbia]. The heaviest snowfalls will occur in mid-December, around Christmas, and in early and mid-January.”For detailed information on the conditions and terrain throughout the full winter season please visit canadianheli-skiing.com/when-to-go-heli-skiing/.
