This winter, your ski season could look a lot different—and more epic—than previous years. Just because international travel restrictions are foiling plans to get your powder fix abroad this season, it doesn’t mean you can’t have an equally epic experience right in your own backyard! In Revelstoke, BC, whether it’s your first or hundredth time heli-skiing, there is something for everybody and so much pow you won’t have to share.
Here are seven reasons to go heli-skiing—not that we need an excuse, right?
1. Escape To Nature
In 2020, avoiding resort lineups isn’t only more enjoyable, but you’ll be so far from the crowds that social distancing becomes a non-issue. With over 400 runs of untouched terrain, regions like Revelstoke in BC will give you access to over 500,000 acres of fresh powder! Accessible via helicopter, you’ll be breathing in the fresh mountain air while skiing across ancient glaciers and alpine meadows.
2. La Niña
The Selkirk and Monashee mountains are home to some of the best snow in the world, regularly dumping 40-60 feet every year. The weather gurus are predicting a La Niña year for the 2020/21 season, meaning colder temperatures and lots of precipitation. Some may say quality over quantity, but Revelstoke is lucky enough to get both, satisfying even the most experienced heli-skiers.
3. Unlimited Vertical
This season, forget everything you know about a typical heli-skiing experience, because our Revelstoke Locals are offering unlimited vertical with every Adventure. Typically, a heli ski package would include a certain amount of runs and you could be left itching for more, but not this season! This year, you’ll be able to ski as far as your legs will take you at no extra cost! If the promise of a thrilling day out in the mountains won’t persuade you, maybe the gourmet breakfast, lunch, and après ski snacks will. Book any of these Revelstoke heli-skiing adventures before November 15th to get an extra deal on the standard rates. Which leads us to our next point…
4. Crazy Low Prices
Prices for heli skiing have never looked so good! With an aim to bring heli-skiing to locals at a more affordable rate, this is the year to bag a deal on the adventure of a lifetime. The best deals are available for those booking early – like this whopping 25% discount on bookings made before November 15th.
5. Smaller Groups
As expected, this season things are looking a little different to account for added safety measures. Expect to find yourself in a smaller helicopter, ensuring you’re only ever in contact with your individual cohort. Each group has a maximum of four explorers to one guide, giving you a more personalized and tailored experience. Better yet, find three friends or book as a family and you’ll have the helicopter to yourselves!
6. Support Locals
When you go heli-skiing in Revelstoke you get to experience the magnificent local mountains in a whole new way but, you also support the hard-working locals that make their living amongst the snowy peaks. Dave is one of the amazing Revelstoke locals that runs heli-skiing tours, and as a Revelstoke local he can’t wait to open your eyes to the amazing mountain range he calls home.
7. Treat Yourself
If you’re still asking yourself why heli-ski at all, the answer is easy: treat yourself. 2020 has been a crazy year, and it’s not over yet, so take this opportunity to cross heli-skiing off your bucket list, save big on a thrilling adventure in the mountains, and ski your stress away in the fresh powder.
