“Off piste” and “Heliskiing” must be the two most worshipped phrases there are in the Skiers or Snowboarders Handbook – and for good reason – its the ultimate combination of snow fun!
Accordingly, we’ve set up an 7 day Introduction to Off piste & heli skiing trip choice that will get you off-piste riding and up in the air into the snowy wilderness that is Heli skiing terrain.
Based out an on-mountain lodge at Kicking Horse, you will kick off the trip with 2 days of all-mountain riding skills coaching then work on your skills with 2 more days with an ACMG ski guide skiing off piste.
Your 5th days sees you bound for the skies for a great day of heli skiing, then a grand finale at Kicking Horse for the last of your off piste guided days.
An Avalanche Skills Training Course Level 1 is also included in the itinerary as well, ensuring you come away from your experience with lots of valuable practical and technical mountain knowledge.
