Canada: British Columbia

The ultimate custom heli-skiing experience. Flexible groupings, leading guide-to-guest ratio and professional safety combine to make this the experience for you!

"Heli-skiing in locations close to Golden and Kicking Horse"

For the ultimate single day heli-skiing experience, Purcell will blow you away with what they have to offer.

Specialising in single-day heli-skiing in a variety of locations close to Golden and Kicking Horse, Purcell understands that good value isn’t just represented by the amount of runs in a day. Creating a truly unique and custom experience, Purcell offers a day on the slopes tailored to you. Delivering an industry-leading ratio of 1 guide to every 3 guests, you have the freedom to take on the powder at your own pace. With groups of 9 guests and 3 guides split quickly by ability and speed, instead of making you wait for the slower members of the group or forcing you to ski faster than you’re comfortable with, Purcell’s flexible program will suit you whatever your level of experience.

"Powder ski or snowboard rental included"

Whilst letting you take charge of your own heli-skiing experience, Purcell remains committed to creating a safe and professional atmosphere. Each day on the mountain starts with a detailed safety briefing, and with digital transceivers and powder ski or snowboard rental included, you can hit the slopes with confidence. Take an exhilarating ride in Purcell’s extra fast ‘Bell 205’ chopper up onto the mountain, before shredding 5 runs of untouched powder across a huge variety of terrain accompanied by their expert guides.

As part of their ‘you will ski guarantee,’ Purcell offers a full refund as well as a complimentary free half-day ski pass at the local Kicking Horse resort on the rare days that the weather makes heli-skiing impossible. With the resort itself having earned a reputation for exciting terrain and big verticals, a forced day off heli-skiing doesn’t mean a day wasted. Purcell pulls out all the stops to make sure you don’t miss a second on the snow.
