Boutique Canada Heliskiing at it’s finest, and catskiing backup.
Snowwater Heliskiing Canada?
We have been there, ask us!
Snowwater Heliskiing Canada offers an intimate heliskiing experience in the Selkirk Mountains of BC, Canada. Just 12 guests share the lodge, heliskiing in groups of 4. Snowwater Heli Skiing does a great job of intergrating catskiing backup when is snows, which happens a lot in the Kootenays. Typically, guests rent a car and drive up from Spokane, Washington. The drive is not bad, even when it’s dumping.
