Weekend Heli-Accessed Ski Tour
Access untouched and remote ski terrain by helicopter on this overnight trip into Vancouver Island's stunning backcountry.
After a swift heli-drop in, spend two days exploring some of the best ski terrain the Island has to offer. Guided by an ACMG-certified guide, participants will have options of circuit tours, or descents on multiple aspects, as determined by conditions of the day. After a solid day of skiing on day two, the helicopter will whisk you out.
