Purcell Heli Skiing Packages

Please note due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Purcell Heli Skiing have decided not to operate during the 2020/21 ski season. However they are taking forward bookings for the 2021/22 season.
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.

COVID-19 Booking Policy for Purcell Heli Skiing for Winter 2021


The Payment Schedule

Seats are guaranteed with a deposit of C$500/person/day.

Balance of payment is due four weeks prior to your trip start date.

The Cancellation Policy

Booking deposits are fully refundable up to four weeks before your trip, no questions asked.

Within four weeks, having paid the final balance, if you have to cancel your trip to comply with COVID-19 related border, travel or quarantine restrictions, 100% of your payment will be available as a credit for a future tour or refunded.

Otherwise, once the final balance is paid, if no restrictions prevent your travel to participate in your tour, and you choose to cancel your trip, our regular cancellation policy will apply, which means the entire payment would be non-refundable.

As always, please get the best travel insurance you can buy to cover you if you have to cancel for other reasons!

The Peace of Mind

We all know that the global situation could change a great deal before the heli lifts off with the first group. Hopefully, it will change for the better. That means that what we’re dealing with, and how best to deal with it, is hard to fully predict right now. The straight up truth is that our policy may have to be updated or fine tuned in the future to adapt to where we’re at.

Before any guest locks in a final payment, the latest situation, terms and expectations will be laid out clearly based on what we all know then. You will have full freedom to cancel or credit your deposit for a future date.

What won’t change is if you can’t get here because of COVID, we got you.
