Purcell Heli Skiing Packages

Purcell can cater to first time heli skiers who are looking for a once in a lifetime adventure or those that are completed addicted to the joy of heli skiing.

Packages include guiding and use of powder skis, ski poles, or snowboard and avalanche safety equipment. And you won’t go hungry with inclusions such as a breakfast snack, a hearty packed lunch, and après ski appetizers.

The 5 run program is a single day package or you can do multiple days (discounts apply), which can be consecutive or non-consecutive.

The Custom Group Program offer an amazing experience at a pace that is customized to the group's ability. The group consists of 9 guests and 3 guides, and the group is split according to ability level. The minimum ability level is strong intermediate, and guests need to feel comfortable skiing amongst trees.

If you have  group of up to 10, you can book a private charter day for you and your group which is quite a bit cheaper per person if you have a full load!

Purcell Heliskiing Terms & Conditions

Our goal is to make the reservations process informative and straightforward. We will always take the time to discuss your particular situation and answer your questions. Simply contact us to get started planning your heli-ski experience!

A $500 non-refundable booking deposit per seat, per day, is required to confirm your seat. The remaining balance is due four weeks prior to guest arrival. For reservations made within four weeks of the ski date, full payment is due at the time of booking to confirm your seat. Bookings can be made by telephone or through email. Please contact us for availability requests and further information.

CURRENCY Purcell Heli-Skiing lists, charges and refunds (if applicable) fees in Canadian dollars exclusively. PHS is not responsible for fluctuations in currency exchange rates related to those transactions.

If you have to cancel for any reason, including illness or injury, you will be subject to the following policies: DAILY PACKAGES: For any booking, $500 per seat is non-refundable from the time confirmed. Once within one week (7 days) of guest arrival, package fees are 100% non-refundable in the case of guest cancellation. EXCLUSIVE and MULTI-DAY PACKAGES: For any booking, $500 per seat, per day, is non-refundable from the time confirmed. Once within four weeks of guest arrival, package fees are 100% non-refundable in the case of guest cancellation. These policies will be applied strictly – We strongly recommend travel insurance to protect you from loss should unforeseen circumstances force you to cancel your heli-ski booking. Medical evacuation costs, if required, are the responsibility of the skier/boarder.

NO FLY DAYS: If poor weather on your heli-ski day prohibits safe flight, we will first attempt to reschedule your reservation to an alternate day in your holiday. If this is not possible, all guests will receive a full refund. Refunds are processed in the same method as original payment.

PARTIALLY SKIED DAYS: Rarely, we are forced to cut the day short due to deteriorating weather conditions or other variables. Partially completed packages are charged according to the following guidelines: By taking off in the helicopter and leaving the base, a minimum charge of $500 plus tax per person will apply. Runs completed (if short of promised package) are charged at $100 plus tax per person per run over and above the $500 flight charge. EXAMPLE: A guest booked on the 5-run package could only complete 2 runs due to weather. The guest will be charged $500 + $100 + $100 plus tax. Guests will receive a refund for the remainder of their fees. Partial refunds are processed in the same method as original payment.

EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY / ASSUMPTION OF RISKS Safety is our prime concern. Our guides and pilots do their best to keep their guests from exposure to potential hazards. However, risks associated with heli-skiing cannot be entirely eliminated. Guests must acknowledge this fact and are required to sign a release of liability / acceptance of risks agreement in the morning prior to heli-skiing
