Snowwater Heli-Skiing, British Columbia, Canada
Snowwater Heli-Skiing offers an intimate heliskiing experience in the Selkirk Mountains of BC, Canada. Just 12 guests share the lodge, heliskiing in groups of 4. And all Unlimited Vertical!
We had a great trip to Snowwater Heli-Skiing! Snowwater Heli Skiing does a great job of integrating 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. Read Over Interview: Snowwater Heli-Skiing
