ONE SMALL GROUP. PRIVATE HELI. GAME ON.

You’ve got just one day. This is the way to do it. Join us for a seriously memorable day of freeriding right from our exclusive heli-pad at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort.

We operate with only ONE group of six guests each day, making the helicopter and terrain completely private to you. This makes for the best experience possible, with the fewest limits on pace, terrain choice and logistics.

THIS PACKAGE IS FOR THOSE WHO WANT THE BEST FIRST-TIME HELI-SKIING EXPERIENCE.

To enjoy the day to its fullest, guests should ski/ride with confidence on all advanced terrain at a ski resort and be in good physical shape. Some off-piste (off the groomers) skiing or riding experience is strongly recommended. Deep powder experience is an asset but not required.

Join with others and make some new friends, or bring your own group of six for the most private experience.

FAQs

Do I have to bring a group of six or can I join in with an existing group?

You can book one seat, all six, or anything in between. If you’re fewer than six, we’ll match you with other participants to make a group. Bringing your own group is the only way to guarantee the exact ability level of your fellow skiers and riders.

How many runs do you get from 4000 metres?

Between 6 to 8 runs, depending on the terrain you access, and the length of runs in that area. The equivalent in feet is a little over 13,000.

What gear is included?

Powder-specific skis/poles or a snowboard with bindings, digital transceiver, shovel/probe and pack. You may bring your own skis or board, but safety equipment is not optional. Ski or snowboard boots are NOT INCLUDED, so you need to arrive with your own. Gear setup and familiarization will take place along with morning orientation.

Do I have to book accommodation (or stay) at Kicking Horse?

No. You just need to be ready to meet us at Winston Lodge in Kicking Horse Village by 8am. We are partnered with and recommend the Copper Horse and Winston Lodge if you would like to add convenient and comfortable accommodation to your package.
