Heli-Skiing & Cat-Skiing
Coast Mountains (Randy Lincks photo)
British Columbia reigns supreme as one of the world's foremost heli-skiing and cat-skiing destinations.
Heli-skiing was pioneered in British Columbia more than 40 years ago, while cat-skiing was born more than 25 years ago in the Kootenay Rockies region.
Heli-skiing means accessing untouched, remote alpine terrain via helicopter. Adventurous skiers and boarders know that BC’s huge, consistent snowfalls, cool temperatures and ten massive mountain ranges translates to untouched powder, epic descents and diverse, wild terrain.
Hop in a snowcat (a treaded, truck-like vehicle), and access lower altitude – but still exhilarating – runs. Cat-skiing is generally less expensive than heli-skiing and is often utilized in inclement weather.
There are more than 20 heli-skiing and cat-skiing operators scattered throughout the province. All access deep powder and vast expanses of untracked terrain but have an array of heli-ski and cat-ski packages, amenities, accommodations, and services to suit all budgets and tastes.
