If you have ever gazed at the pristine, un-tracked snow on the peaks visible from Mount Washington and yearned to carve it up, this could be your winter! Join us for a day of heli skiing right here in the Island Alps. Start the day by meeting your guide for safety briefings. Then it’s into the helicopter and up into the mountains for a great day of wilderness skiing. The guide, transceiver, shovel and probe as well as lunch are all provided. Just bring your advanced/intermediate or above skiing ability and be prepared to be a pioneering heli skier on Vancouver Island!
When do we heli ski?
To go heli skiing we need the right combination of weather suitable for flying and good stability in the snow. Typically this happens right at the same time that you've finished carving up the fresh stuff at the ski hill and are yearning for more!
How it woks:
If you are interested in heli skiing with us send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone us on 250 400 2870. We will put your name on a list of people who are keen to go heli skiing when conditions are just right. When that time comes we'll contact you and offer you the chance to join us for a day of heli skiing. Decisions to go will be based on weather forecasts and avalanche hazard forecasts done by our expert guides. You'll usually have somewhere between one and three days notice that it's "game on"!

I have skied all over the world in Europe, Canada, South America, Greenland, Alaska, Russia and the Himalayas. Some of the best days I have had have been skiing with Jan.Joaquin Folch, Barcelona, Spain.
