RK Heliski Day Packages

NB for the 20/21 season, only semi-private (ski as your own group with up to two other groups utilising the helicopter) and private heli skiing (exclusive use of the helicopter) packages will be offered. The 3 or 5 run packages will not be run, to avoid mixing groups.

RK Heliski is one of the few operators in BC that offers the option of "day heli skiing" of 3 or 5 runs (with options to purchase additional runs on the day).

One day is ideal if you’ve never heli-skied before or don’t want to commit to a multi-day package because it’s too expensive, or you can’t get a leave pass from your spouse.

If you are staying at Panorama Mountain Resort, a day of 2 of heli skiing with RK Heliski can be the perfect adjunct to your ski holiday making it a trip of a lifetime!

If you have your own group of 5 to 7 skiers/boarders you have the option of a 5-run private day (in a smaller helicopter). You get to ski with just your group with your own guide and the pace of the day is entirely up to your and your group.

RK Heliski allows minors from the age of 14 to join a day with a consenting adult. Full-time students get a discounted rate from the full adult rate.

All day packages include the guided heli skiing, transport, breakfast, lunch, and use of powder skis and an avalanche transceiver.

Below is a short teaser of what you can expect on a day with RK Heliski.....
