Just beyond the ski lifts of Whistler and Blackcomb, minutes from North America’s #1-ranked Ski Resort, awaits the ultimate high-alpine experience. Imagine carving through untracked powder, endless terrain and breath-taking scenery. With hundreds of ski runs, there is a tremendous variety of slopes to accommodate all levels of skiers and boarders from intermediate to expert.
The skiing varies from wide-open glaciers to beautiful gladed tree runs. The heli-ski area is made up of several zones and is approximately 50 miles north/south by 30 miles east/west (80km by 50km). Your guide will select terrain within a zone according to snowfall, the weather, and your group’s ability.
The day begins with an 8:15am check in in Whistler Village. You will then meet your guide and leave for the Whistler Heliport, just a 10 minute drive north of the village. At the heliport you will receive information on helicopter safety and on transceiver orientation. Finally its up into the air to begin your chosen package.
You can book a 3, 4 or 6 run package. All heli-adventures are lead by a professional, certified heli-ski guide and include the use of avalanche transceiver, on–mountain lunch and return ground transportation from Whistler Village.

"Best place I have stayed in Canada!"Michael
"Loved this hotel. The condo was right by the base of the slopes, you couldn't ask for a better location. The kitchen was a great addition and I spent lots of time on the spacious balcony. Best place I have stayed in Canada!"
"We had a great time (again!)"Mr N. Slater
"We had a great time (again!) Both flights with Air Canada were trouble free and on time. The meet/greet at the airport was just as described, easy to find and the transfer departed without undue delay. The driver was informative and friendly too. The Delta Whistler Village Suite was perfect. A really well equipped apartment close to the centre of town, and benefitting from access to a swimming pool, sauna, etc. The reception/concierge staff were excellent - really excellent. This is the second time we have been to The Delta Whistler Village Suites and we would happily go there again."
