Purcell Heli Skiing Packages

Purcell Heli Skiing can cater to first time heli skiers who are looking for a once in a lifetime adventure or those that are completed addicted to the joy of heli skiing. You can choose from a 1 Day Heli Experience, 2 Day Heli-Ski Immersion, or 3 Day Heli-Ski Ultimate Package.

Purcell Heli Ski packages include guiding and use of powder skis, ski poles, or snowboard and avalanche safety equipment. And you won’t go hungry with a hearty mountainside lunch included.

You can partake as a solo skier/boarder or smaller group or keep it exclusive with your own posse of up to 6 guests. The group consists of 6 guests and 2 guides, and the group doesn't have to share the helicopter with anyone else.

Conveniently the meeting spot is at Winston Lodge at Kicking Horse Resort, and you can meet your guides at 8am. You will have access to free parking, restroom facilities and safe storage of personal belongings while out in the backcountry.

Ability Level

To enjoy the day to its fullest, guests should be able to ski/ride with confidence on all advanced terrain at a ski resort (including trees) and be in good physical shape. Some off-piste (off the groomers) skiing or riding experience is essential. Deep powder experience is an asset but not required.

For more information about terrain and the company, see the Purcell Heli Skiing overview.

Typical Daily Itinerary

The day commences at 8:00 am at the Winston Lodge at Kicking Horse (adjacent to the Copper Horse Lodge). Before heading out, an avalanche safety briefing is held at the lodge and any rental equipment is adjusted to your requirements.

During the day a hearty lunch is served in the mountains.

You will arrive back at Kicking Horse somewhere around 3 - 4 pm depending on the speed of your group & number of runs you end up doing.

Accommodation Options

The Purcell Heli Skiing packages can include lodging if you wish at the Copper Horse Lodge.

Or you can choose from other Kicking Horse accommodations here.
