“Epic Spring day”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Just received my DVD in the mail from the team at Whistler Heli Skiing and felt I had to share what an amazing day it was. This had been a dream of mine for a long time to have a heli powered adventure and it didn't disappoint. The whole planning stage was really easy with great communication via email from Australia and on the day the team were super friendly and thorough in the safety brief and the on mountain guiding with Dr Rob. We had great lines for the 5 drops that we did in nice knee deep spring conditions. I was buzzing afterwards for days and watching the footage just brings it all back to life. Couldn't be more stoked, thanks so much for an epic day out...:) Scott

“Skiers Dream”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

As a person that has skied in all types of terrains across North America over several decades, this was truly a bucket list experience. I have skied deep powder above timberline but this was the first time I skied in a mountain range where the only humans were the 15 of us. We had a foot of snow the previous night followed by a sunny day. We skied the Spearhead area right behind Blackcomb. As with all things at Whistler, the service was excellent and skied 4 runs with Rob and 2 with Rich, while going through avalanche training by Vlad. I was expecting steeper runs but given the recent snowfall and spring conditions, the avalanche risk kept us away from some of the steeper stuff. I would rate the run difficulty as blue/black but with a lot of powder. The only set back was having a skier in one of the groups that just couldn't handle the terrain. With 1 helicopter servicing 3 groups of 5, you are only as strong as your weakest link, and she slowed down the pace of all 3 groups. The last 2 runs were awesome with only 3 skiers left from the original 15. This will be a ski day that I never forget.

Beautiful day of deep powder Skiing in the Callaghan Range. Vlad was a great guide, explained all about the safety aspects as well as anecdotes about the experience. Made everyone very comfortable about the skiing and made it a wonderful adventure. Fabulous day. Thanks to all the staff there.
