Heli Assisted Touring: Ski & Snowboard

Combining the ease and convenience of heli-skiing with the serenity and challenge of ski touring, our new heli-assisted ski touring program covers all the bases. A unique and remote backcountry experience in the beautiful Coast Mountains might just be exactly what you’ve been waiting for!

Enjoy a full day of mind-blowing backcountry skiing, snowboarding, or telemarking  in the zones you’ve always dreamed of getting to, or maybe the ones you didn’t even know existed. Our ACMG Guides will help you conquer those runs on your bucket list and help you get to them in style!

Please note this course requires touring skis or splitboard, skins & avalanche safety gear. If you require Backcountry rentals please let us know. Bagged lunches are available for $13 and contain a sandwich, piece of fruit, cookie and a drink.

The total trip price is the cost of the heli transport plus the Extremely Canadian ACMG guide. The group can be up to four people plus the guide and pilot.

Blackcomb Helicopters is a 100% carbon neutral company.  This means they have measured the greenhouse gases emitted during each hour of flight from all of their helicopters operating in all varieties of work we do (utility, tourism, widlfire, film, rescue etc). We have mitigated these emissions from our flights by purchasing the equivalent amount of carbon offsets, where the money will go to fund green projects including our forest preservation project on Quadra Island.
