Phantom Heli Skiing Day Heliskiing Packages

Phantom Heli Skiing offers 2 package options for day heliskiing: either PRIVATE; or SEMI-PRIVATE.

The main difference is that a private package provides exclusive use of the helicopter for 4 guests and a guide, whereas the semi-private package is based on 2 private groups of up to 4 guests sharing a helicopter.

Private Package

With the full private package, you and up to 3 other friends have the exclusive use of a B2 A-star helicopter with a qualified ACMG / AMGA guide.

These packages depart from either:

a) Downtown Vancouver where you meet the helicopter on the water's edge at Coal Harbour; or
b) Phantom Heli's Black Tusk base in Squamish

The private Vancouver package includes 3 hours of helicopter flying time with an estimated 10-12 runs for the day, whereas the Squamish package includes 1.5 hours of heli flying time with an estimated 10 – 14 runs for the day.

See the rates & inclusions tab for pricing details.

"Classic" Semi-Private Package

The semi-private package is based on 2 groups of up to 4 guests sharing a helicopter. Each group has its own guide.

You can book as a private group of up to 4 guests or you could book the entire 8 guest spots if you have a larger group.

The semi-private packages depart from The Black Tusk in Squamish.

The semi-private packages include 1.25 hours of helicopter flying time for each group and you would expect 8 - 12 runs on the day.

Both the private & semi-private packages have the option to be picked up from Whistler.

This must be done shortly after making your reservation (some require insurance to be purchased within 15-20 days of initial trip deposit).

We also recommend that you carry insurance to cover the risk of injury while you are at your destination. If you are injured, you will be charged the ambulance expenses associated with your evacuation as well as any expenses related to your medical care. Medical and evacuation insurance will help to cover these costs.
