This guide is going to cover every detail of your heli-ski trip, so you get the most of it.

It’s no surprise to say, heli-skiing has it all. It may feel like your first date, yeah it can excite the hell out of you.

Let’s start by breaking a myth… myth? Yes! You read it right. You don’t need to be an elite skier for this to happen! Contrary to what you might think, heli-skiing isn’t just for the world’s elite shredders. You don’t have to be an expert who leaps out of a moving chopper and fall straight into a powder bath to your knees. Yes, if you’re confident on an intermediate (or blue-square) ride on your local mountain in six inches of powder snow, you have all the skills you need to take a heli-skiing blast. Read more
