Selkirk Tangiers Heli Skiing - Day Packages

Utilizing the traditional Bell 205 helicopter which carries up to 11 guests (plus a guide and pilot), you have the choice of a 3-run Powder Excursion package or a 5-run full day Powder Adventure package, or the latter can extend across 2 days for a 10-run Powder Expedition. Or take it up a notch with your own group for a private heli skiing package in either the Bell 407 or A Star helicopter.

The relaxed pace of the Powder Excursion is designed for first-time heli virgins. Although this package suits first-timers, previous powder skiing or boarding experience is required plus a good level of fitness.

The Powder Adventure package is designed for more experienced powder skiers and snowboarders and you can dial it up for 2 days of heli skiing if you wish.

If getting the maximum amount of vertical is your thing, Selkirk Tangiers offer a premium private package for your own group of 3, 4, 8 or 10 (or bespoke packages for other group sizes).

All packages include the guided heli skiing, breakfast, lunch on the mountain, the use of avalanche safety equipment, safety briefing and use of powder skis/boards. Extra runs can be purchased for an additional fee (see Rates & Inclusions for prices) assuming other people in the group also want to purchase extra runs, or extra hours for the private packages.

Day Heli Skiing Itinerary

At 7:30 am, day skiers are required to register at our Guest Services Desk, located in the Retail Shop on the lower level of the Hillcrest Hotel. Guests will be required to fill out a release of liability waiver and check in with our ski technicians for high performance rentals. The morning also includes breakfast and safety training prior to boarding the helicopter. We break up the ski day with a delicious lunch in the mountains and end the day right with après snacks and beverages back at the Hillcrest Hotel.

On the evening before your heli day, stop by our Retail Shop (lower level of Hillcrest Hotel) before 6:30pm to be ahead of the game! Register, fill out a waiver, and select skis or a snowboard to use. If you’re unable to make it the night before, please arrive at 7:30am on the morning of your ski day to get organized.

7:30am Register at the Retail Shop: Guests using our skis will need to bring a ski boot for our ski technicians to adjust the bindings. If you checked in the night before… you can go enjoy breakfast straight away.

  • sauna
  • indoor hot tub
  • a lounge area with couches and pool table.
