Single day heli skiing tours in the Purcell Mountains of British Columbia


Ski the deep powder of the Purcell Mountains on this heli-skiing tour in British Columbia..  A five minute flight will take you up into the Purcell Mountains and to the ski area, which measures well over 2,000 square kilometers.  There are well over 250 runs offering every conceivable exposure and type of terrain.  Most of the runs lie between 3,000 and 1,200 meters.  Your skiing takes place on glaciers, open slopes and in the trees.

The Purcell Mountains are well noted for reliable deep powder skiing.  Your personal guide will choose the best runs suited to the weather and snow conditions, providing the perfect ski vacation.  In the evening you can relax back in your hotel room, soak in the hot tub or enjoy the local nightlife.

The Purcell Mountains, where you will have the pleasure of heli-skiing, are part of British Columbia's famous Interior Ranges, where fresh, fluffy snow just keeps coming. Unlike the Coast Ranges, the snow that falls here is light, dry, and makes for some of the world's best skiing.
