They did not take care of my belongings. Some of my personal belongings that had great value and importance to myself as well as a large dollar value were actually broken in the hands of the staff when I wasn't looking and they refused to pay for the belongings that they broke and were extremely rude about it to me....

This is a must do one in your life. Superb location and lodge for this. Everyone fantastic and really patient. One of my best ski experiences. Great to go to areas that can't be reached without a helicopter.

After the 2nd visit, looking forward to the next one. As soon as you walk through the door it's all smiles and a great vibe. The staff, the guides, are all good people to be around. Very professional while being fun. Safety is a number one priority. Excellent skiing no matter what the weather permits.

Everyone at RK was great from start to finish. I was picked up in their van in Banff, which is a little bit of a haul but well worth the ride. They take their safety seriously and both guides, Andrew & Jacob (I think, sorry if I got that wrong already) were very friendly and knowledgeable. Boarding was fantastic! Breakfast... More

We come back, for sure!! There, are... More

The whole day was very well run, with safety being the utmost concern at all times. Breakfast was very good, lunch was a sandwich - which tasted amazing sat on the slopes after two runs. The safety briefing was very through and all questions were appreciated. The runs were some of the best skiing I have ever done. Snacks and... More

This is our second visit and I came with my sons aged 31 and 28. The skiing is nirvana, the scenery is arguably more impressive than anywhere I have skied in Europe or North America but all of this is just the backdrop to an amazingly personal and professional service from the guys at rk heliski. We had 4 days... More

Everything about RK was better than we expected. Staff was very friendly, food was great, and the snow was epic! We did the 5 run powder package and did one extra run. Mike our guide was very good to deal with. If you have a larger group it may be worthwhile to try the semi-private package. It may be a... More

My 3-run package with optional additional runs cost CDN$847+tax (overseas guests tell me that they have access to RK at half-price in their package deals). All day I felt pressured and rushed.
