Selkirk Tangiers Day Heli Skiing Overview

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.

The relaxed pace of the Powder Excursion is designed for first-time heli virgins. No powder experience necessary; just good level of fitness & strong intermediate ability. This package is only available on Wednesdays.

The Powder Adventure package is designed for intermediate to advanced riders with some powder skiing experience. This Package is only available on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

NOTE: In both cases, sometimes STHS will operate these packages on other days subject to availability - enquire to find out

If getting the maximum amount of vertical is your thing, Selkirk Tangiers offer a premium private package called the Day Star Private which provides for up to 5,000 vertical metres of Powderhound paradise in a day with a group of 4 or 5. The heli picks up right from the front-door of the Hillcrest Hotel in Revi so you will be stepping out to your first run in just a few short minutes from take-off!

Lastly, if your budget can stretch to booking 2-days, Selkirk Tangiers offer a 2-Day No Frills (10 Run) package (without accommodation) which is virtually the same as the day packages with either a discount or additional vertical.

All packages include the guided heli skiing, 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.

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.
7:30am - 8:15am Full buffet breakfast in the Dining Room on the main floor of the hotel.
8:15am Guests interested in renting avalanche airbag backpacks can meet in the retail shop to be assigned a backpack.  A rental form will need to be completed and one of our staff will guide you through the procedures for wearing one of these devices.
8:30am Your guide will meet you in the retail shop and provide you with one of our avalanche transcievers. Be ready to go outside with ski boots on. Ski techs will have your rental skis/boards waiting outside and you can choose a set a pole fom the bootroom as you make your way outside to your designated shuttle van.
8:45am - 10:00am Your guide will lead you through a backcountry safety briefing before meeting the helicopter for an orientation of the machine. Once the training is complete your group will either load the helicopter directly or you could be transported by van to a staging area for pickup.
