Now operating right from Kicking Horse’s very own heli-pad in the resort village, skiers and riders keen on the next level can get on board for a day of deep powder with Purcell Heli-Skiing. Guests meet for orientation at the Winston Lodge.
One, two and three-day packages let you access vast terrain, untouched snow and awe-inspiring views. Small groups (6 guests, 2 guides) and a private helicopter allow for the best guest experience in terms of flow, flexibility and terrain variety. All guides are ACMG/UIAGM certified.
A short 10-minute flight takes you beyond the inbounds ski area to our 2000 square kilometre operating zone.
Skiers and riders confident on the black diamond terrain of The Horse or better are a match for heli-skiing, even if you’re new to deep powder.
Purcell is a unique, family-run operation that’s been guiding backcountry adventures since 1974. With experience, professionalism, and humour, they take a small number of guests into a big environment and show you the time of your skiing and riding life.
