Heli-Skiing & Cat-Skiing

It’s no wonder the Kootenay Rockies region is the birthplace of heli-skiing and cat-skiing – its five spectacular mountain ranges are characterized by soaring peaks and deep champagne powder.

Heli-skiing here is all about choice. The Kootenay Rockies region has over ten heli-ski operators (more than any other BC region), including one that was named the “Best Heli-Ski Travel Adventure Company on Earth” in 2009 by National Geographic Adventure magazine.

There are many heli-skiing and cat-skiing operators near small mountain towns – Meadow Creek (near Kaslo), Fernie, Nelson, Rossland, Revelstoke and Golden – that offer a variety of ski packages and services, from high-end luxury accommodation and fine dining to basic room and board or remote lodges.

Spend days skiing fresh powder on a week-long excursion or head to a ski resort to experience single day heli-skiing. Want to hit the slopes every day? It's easy to add lift-skiing or backcountry touring to a heli-ski or cat-ski vacation.
