Banff, Kicking Horse, Revelstoke
This is a heliski trip for both experts, and for those wanting the perfect entry experience into the heliskiing world. Each day the quality of skiing and adventure builds towards the highlight of the trip: heliskiing in Revelstoke.
To help prepare you this trip highlight, the pre-program offered by Stumboeck-Guides will provide the perfect conditioning needed for the steep and deep powder of heliskiing. Starting with skiing in the Banff/Lake Louise area, the pre-program builds on your initial ski days by adding the challenging, steep and wild terrain of Kicking Horse Ski Resort. The newcomer among the Canadian ski resorts leaves nothing left to be desired.
The highlight of the journey: two full days of heliskiing with Selkirk-Tangiers in Revelstoke. Insiders describe Revelstoke as the secret capital of heliskiing. Be enchanted by the atmosphere of heliskiing and discover a new dimension of skiing.
