Selkirk Tangiers Classic Packages Overview

Utilizing the traditional Bell 205 helicopter which carries up to 11 guests (plus a guide and pilot), the Classic packages are available for three, five, & six days (4, 6 & 7 nights) and are sold on a per seat basis.

All packages include the heli skiing, the use of powder skis, all meals, and accommodation at the Hillcrest Hotel. If your partner or family don’t want to heli-ski, they can also stay at the hotel and enjoy everything else that Revelstoke has to offer – resort skiing, cat skiing and other activities.

Classic Package Itinerary

Your heli ski package will begin Saturday evening at the Coast Hillcrest Hotel with an orientation at 6:30pm followed by dinner (3 day packages might also begin with arrival on Wednesday). You should try and check in with STHS at their Retail Shop, on the lower floor of the hotel, by 5:00pm if possible. At this time, you may bring your ski boots along and get your skis set up, which will save time the following morning. At the orientation, they will introduce themselves & explain what time they want you to meet in the morning, what a typical day of heli-skiing involves, as well as a weather forecast along with snow and ski conditions.

A typical day

6:30am Optional stretch class in the Mount Revelstoke Room, located on the 2nd floor of the Hillcrest Hotel.
7:00am - 8:15am Full buffet breakfast in the Mountain Guides Lounge, located on the main floor, just off the lobby of the Hillcrest Hotel.
8:15am Meet your guide in the Retail Shop to begin the safety briefing. Be fully suited up and ready to go outside (winter boots required).
8:30am - 9:45am Your guide will lead you through a safety exercise before meeting the helicopter for a orientation of the machine. Once training is complete, you will return to the hotel to finalize what you need for the day and make sure you have all gear (including ski/snowboard boots).
10:00am - 10:15am Lift for your first run. Skiing until lunch.
12:30pm - 1:00pm Lunch in the mountains.
1:00pm onwards Continue skiing.
3:00pm - 4:00pm Return to the Hillcrest Hotel for après-ski snacks and beverages.
Dinner Time Dinner time will be posted daily in the lower level of the Hillcrest Hotel, right outside the Retail Shop.

On the following days of your package, buffet breakfast starts at 7am in the Hillcrest dining room. Be sure to meet your guide all geared up by the front doors in the lobby at 8:15am unless otherwise directed. Then it’s time to head out again and again!

Hillcrest Hotel

The Coast Hillcrest Resort Hotel is a huge beam lodge located just a few kilometres from the town centre of Revelstoke. The hotel is more rustic than chic, with the décor incredibly fitting for the mountain-side setting.

AccommodationAll rooms have two queen beds or a king sized bed, and some of them even have a spa (hot tub) in situ. Rooms either feature dramatic views of the Columbia Valley, or a tranquil garden view which is likely to be snow covered.

Hotel FacilitiesFacilities of the hotel include:
  • an exercise room
  • sauna
  • indoor hot tub
  • a lounge area with couches and pool table.
  • an outdoor hot tub 

RestaurantsThe Hillcrest has a lovely restaurant and bar with an open fireplace and it all comes with great food and a lovely ambience. See more about the Hilcrest Hotel here >>

Selkirk Tangiers Refund Policy

Circumstances may arise where we cannot fulfill your heli ski package and you will need to be reimbursed. The basis for cancelling a heli ski day could be: Inclement weather, mechanical helicopter reasons or avalanche conditions. If cancellation occurs, you will be provided with a partial or full refund, based on the following conditions:

  • If Selkirk Tangiers decides to cancel the day before your trip, a 100% refund will be provided if the guest cannot be rebooked on another date during the season
  • If the decision is made to cancel by the time you arrive for check-in at 7:30, a 100% refund will be provided if rebooking is not an option. You can enjoy a complimentary breakfast and a bagged lunch.
  • If the decision is made to cancel after breakfast and safety training, a $100 administration fee will be charged, with the remaining balance refunded. The administration fee can be used as a credit towards your next Selkirk Tangiers reservation. The credit is non-transferrable and is valid for two years. A bagged lunch and a lift ticket to Revelstoke Mountain Resort will be provided.
  • If we start skiing but the guaranteed number of runs cannot be reached, STHS will refund you $148 plus tax for each run not achieved (double the extra run rate)
Every heli ski package with Selkirk Tangiers includes a certain amount of guaranteed vertical metres. If the guaranteed vertical target is not reached during your visit due to inclement weather, mechanical helicopter reasons or avalanche conditions, you will be refunded at a rate of $116.00 plus tax per 1,000 vertical metres for Classic packages. We do not refund guests who do not reach the guaranteed vertical amount due to poor skiing ability or fitness, illness or injury. If you choose not to ski on any given day during your package, you will still be charged for the minimum metres skied by your group.

Classic Packages Guarantee

Package Vertical Metres Included Vertical Metres Guaranteed*
Classic 3 Day 12,000 9,000
Classic 3 Day Unlimited Unlimited 9,000
Classic 5 Day 23,500 20,000
Classic 5 Day Unlimited Unlimited 20,000
Classic 6 Day 27,500 23,500
Classic 7 Day 32,000 27,500

*When calculating the amount of vertical you would be refunded for if you were unable to ski the vertical included with your package for the reasons listed above, use the "guaranteed vertical" amount. For example:

  • You were booked on a 3 Day Classic Package that includes 12,000 vertical metres and a guaranteed vertical of 9,000 vertical metres.
  • Due to inclement weather, mechanical helicopter reasons, or avalanche hazard, you were only able to ski 8,000 vertical metres over the length of your package.
  • Therefore the difference between the guaranteed 9,000 vertical metres on your package and what you skied was 1,000 vertical metres. You would be refunded for $116.00 plus tax.

Conditional Credit Policy

In rare cases, circumstances can arise that impact the total amount of vertical that can be skied during a heli ski trip with Selkirk Tangiers. In these situations, STHS will provide a conditional credit to guests. The additional credit must be left on account and is applicable for future heli skiing trips. It is provided if, for reasons of mechanical breakdown, inclement weather or avalanche conditions, you have skied less than:

Package Vertical Metres Credit Refund
Classic 3 Day 7,200 $450
Classic 3 Day Unlimited 7,200 $450
Classic 5 Day 14,000 $750
Classic 5 Day Unlimited 14,000 $750
Classic 6 Day 16,500 $900
Classic 7 Day 19,000 $1050

This credit is in addition to the refund. This is on account with Selkirk Tangiers and can be used towards deposits, heli ski packages, extra vertical, or in the retail shop (when heli skiing with STHS), within the next two years. After two years the credit will expire and is non-refundable. The credit is also non-transferrable and applies to the person who made the original booking only.
