Amazing time. Professional and I mean Professional guides. Did I say the guides are Professional? Yes they are that good. The terrain goes without saying, but there is something for just about every level ski/boarder. I work in the aviation business specifically helicopters, Their pilots are as good as they get. I highly recommend.

This was a wonderful day that exceeded my expectations -- Whistler Heli-Skiing is an outstanding company that does everything right to make your day safe and enjoyable. We had traveled to Whistler in March, and booked a day of heli-skiing for our family. Unfortunately, my husband got ill on the first run and we had to be helicoptered off the... More

Having been 'pestered' by my 'kids' (20/22 yrs old both Qualified Ski Instructors) I finally relented. Keeping a keen eye on the weather forecast we did a 4 run package at the end of March. With temperatures rising on WB we couldn't have picked better - bluebird day with no wind. After sorting powder skis out the night before we... More

For my son's 18th Birthday I purchased him a day of Heli-Boarding with Whistler Heli-Skiing. The staff was very friendly when I called to inquire about the safely record, recommended package for him, etc. When we arrived in Whistler and stopped in the office a few days later to check him in for his experience, they were also very friendly...

My brother and I spent a day with Whistler Heli-Skiing - our guides were Dale and Michael. This company has an outstanding product and our two guides were the best. They were very thorough, from the safety briefings, rescue procedures and getting us ready for what to expect out on the mountain. I would highly recommend this company if you're... More

We did this for my fathers birthday and it was worth every penny! There are three offerings at Whistler Heli Ski, a three run, four run and six run package. We did the six run package which is done in a smaller helicopter and is therefore a smaller group. I strongly suggest this package if you are a strong skier... More

I would recommend this day / trip for any intermediate skier and above. The location was awesome, the power was deep, and the staff / guides were excellent. The routes were chosen based on abilities and the entire experience was perfect from beginning to end. Everyone was very safety conscience while we all had fun!

I can't say enough good things about my first heli-skiing experience with Whistler Heli-Skiing. Helene Steiner was the consummate professional as our guide. With over 20 years of experience, she exuded a calm confidence while being laid-back and humorous. The safety briefing and practice on how to use our avalanche transceiver, and avalanche safety and rescue procedures was fun and... More
