Revelstoke Heli Skiing Travel Time / Convenience

Revelstoke heli ski options are not the most convenient heli skiing destination to reach, but it’s not bad.  It is best to fly to Kelowna, then drive or take a shuttle two hours.  Kelowna has better reliability than many remote BC airports, thanks to weather and more sophisticated radar.
