RK Heli-Skiing

Why heli-ski with RK?

RK heli-ski offers wide open alpine slopes, scenic glaciers and gladed forests for their heli-ski/boarding tours. Some of the best skiing in the world is only another 10-15 minute helicopter flight from rk's Heli-plex into the heart of the Purcell mountains where the air is fresh, the powder is deep and the experience exhilarating. The proximity to Panorama Mountain Resort means you will never have a day where you cannot ski. On the few days RK are unable to access the backcountry due to bad weather and you happen to be booked to heliski on one of those days, you will not find yourself stranded in the lodge. A day heliskiing can easily be added on to your main skiing holiday whether at Panorama, Banff or Lake Louise.

What is the lodging like?

As its a daily trip accommodation is not included. We recommend you stay in the ski resort of Panorama or 1 1/2 hours away in the ski town of Banff where transfers can be arranged.

How much heli-skiing can I do?

You can book a 3 run or 5 run package. Guests are greeted at rk's Heliplex base lodge at 8:30am and can begin to check-in. An avalanche transceiver will be issued at this time and staff will confirm that your waiver and rental forms have been completed. If you are a skier, they will require one of your ski boots to set up your powder fat skis. They will also ask you to step on a scale to ensure an accurate body weight for helicopter considerations. Now you can relax in Choppers Landing restaurant and enjoy a hearty breakfast. After fueling up on bacon and eggs, you will meet outside for the Companion Rescue Training with rk's transceiver and a helicopter safety orientation. At about 10:30am, one group of heli-skiers will fly directly from the Heliplex lodge to the beautiful Purcell Mountains, while other groups are shuttled to the nearby Coppercrown staging site where they will be picked up by helicopter; also bound for the Purcells.

All tours include - 3 or 5 runs of helicopter skiing/boarding, custom fat ski's, certified guide, buffet breakfast, picnic lunch, snacks and drinks
