If it’s just deep, deep, Canadian powder you’re looking for, then head to us in January or February
Traditionally this is ‘prime-time’ to heli ski in Canada, as arguably you have the best of both worlds; consistently big snowfalls, relatively cold temperatures with longer days and a deep snow-pack. The average temperatures in February (-7.2°C) are slightly warmer than the early season, but remain cool enough to preserve high quality dry snow.
Typically, our high season is booked up by repeat guests who get first dibs on their dates until two weeks after their trip. The peak season provides a bit of everything, with the largest variety of runs from peak to valley bottom, and is consistently pleasing everyone, tree skiing and wide open bowls alike.
Many of our veterans tell us they don’t care if they ever ski another glacier again. They want tree skiing - and lots of it. The Kootenays offer the best old growth skiing on the planet with simply spectacular tree skiing at its finest.
