Heli- & Cat-Skiing

It's been more than 50 years since British Columbia's peaks - and a few intrepid skiers - brought heli-skiing to the masses. Every winter, BC's endless steeps are blessed with deep powder, covering vast terrain up to 40 times larger than the world’s biggest resorts. In BC's mountains, exhilarating heli- and cat-skiing adventures abound.
