We are getting lots of requests from customers who want to heli ski combined with resort skiing and/or cat skiing.
Many are looking to try helicopter skiing or heliboarding for the first time while on a resort ski trip. It’s easy to add a day or two at Whistler, Snowbird/Alta, Telluride, Sun Valley or just about any resort in SE British Columbia. It’s roughly $1000.
Some want to do some heliskiing without spending $6K+. By combining heliskiing with catskiing or resort skiing, you can cut the price in half.
Others are not in shape to heli ski every day for a week; others want the option to ski the result if the weather turns bad. For the same reasons, some want cat skiing as a warm up, or as a fall-back the heliskiing suffers a down day.
We now have multiple heli-ski operators with combinations to offer. They vary in trip duration and the combination of days. Shoulder seasons are less expensive. We recommend resort and catskiing first, so that your legs are in shape for the heli-ski days. Also, it’s hard to sit on a chairlift the day after heliskiing……..
