With a helicopter to whisk you straight into high alpine terrain, great ski terrain is accessible for a day tour in the Island Alps. Start the day by flying to the top of a run and skiing down. From there a day of touring unfolds with descents possible on many aspects, with circuit tours a possibility. The helicopter comes back to pick you up after a great day of touring.
If you don't own your own touring gear, Ski Tak Hut offers 50% off rentals for all Island Alpine Guides customers while on one of our trips.
You should be an advanced skier or snowboarder in natural snow conditions to sign up for a posted trip. If your skiing ability is less than this, please get in touch so that we can create a compatible group for you.

The trip was phenomenal and exceeded my expectations. Great group, great guide, great pilot!Robert Doerfler, Camas, WA, USA
Best thing I did all winter. I couldn't have asked for a better day! Joe was a fantastic guide and the terrain he took us into was epic. The whole trip from our guide to the terrain choices to our pilot was top notch. I can't wait to do it again next year.Corey Gardiner, Victoria, BC
