So what makes us choose the type of ski that we carry in our rental fleet? Well the answer is simple: Many years of combined input from top skier’s field testing mixed with the latest greatest technology. We know that your trip is super important and we want to provide you with the best possible gear. The snowpack in the coastal mountains mean that we need a ski that can both float on the powder and be nimble when we end up skiing the trees.

We have been using Prior Khyber and Prior Spearhead snowboards for a few years now and have heard nothing but good feedback from the heli boarding guests who have used them. Both Prior snowboards are designed to excel in powder while still being versatile enough to take on windblown peaks and tight trees, which is what makes them perfect for our British Columbia heli boarding company.
