Heli-Skiing & Cat-Skiing

British Columbia reigns supreme as one of the world’s foremost heli-skiing and cat-skiing destinations. Heli-skiing was pioneered in British Columbia more than 40 years ago, while cat-skiing was born more than 25 years ago in the Kootenay Rockies region.

Heli-skiing means accessing untouched, remote alpine terrain in a helicopter. Adventurous skiers and boarders know that BC’s huge, consistent snowfalls, cool temperatures and ten massive mountain ranges translates to untouched powder, epic descents and diverse, wild terrain.

Hop in a snowcat and access lower altitude – but still exhilarating – runs. Cat-skiing is generally less expensive than heli-skiing and is often utilized in inclement weather
