RK Heliski Packages

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! Or if you do 3 or more days of heli skiing, the day rate is discounted.

Package Options

All day packages include the guided heli skiing (ACMG certified ski guide), transport, hot gourmet breakfast, lunch, apres ski snacks, evacuation coverage, and use of powder skis and an avalanche transceiver.
