RK Heliski

Heli skiing is paradise for skiers and boarders who love fresh powder, face shots and no crowds. With 40 years of experience, RK Heli-ski Canada has a very long history, and their expertise and commitment to safety and customer service is paramount. RK is very popular with holiday-makers at Panorama ski resort, but considering that heli-skiing is not permitted in Alberta, lots of Banff and Lake Louise skiers also go with RK Heli-Ski.

Heli Skiing Packages

BC heli skiing is the ultimate so you can expect great quality, but RK Heli-ski has some distinctive elements above many of their competitors. This is one of few operators that offer the option of single day heli-skiing. One day is ideal if you’ve never heli-skied before, or don’t want to commit to a multi-day package because it’s too expensive, or you can’t get a leave pass from your spouse.

Of course the only problem is that once you’ve been heli-skiing you’ll get hooked and want to do multiple days. They provide an incentive to do their 3-day package at a discounted rate per day.

If you are a heli junkie looking for max vert; RK Heli also offer private packages.

One of the major benefits of heli-skiing with RK Heliski is that you can combine heli and resort skiing at Panorama. You can choose your own Panorama accommodation to suit your taste and budget in Panorama village, and you don’t have to be separated from your partner or family if they don’t heli-ski. You don’t have to stay in a remote lodge with people that you don’t know, and best of all, you can enjoy all that Panorama village has to offer in terms of après and dining. Resort skiing also provides a back-up option in the event of the chopper being grounded due to inclement weather.

The other option is to stay in Banff and combine heli-skiing with resort skiing at Sunshine, Lake Louise or Norquay. RK Heliski provides shuttles from hotels in Banff to their base in Panorama.

Where is RK Heli Ski Located?

The day lodge and base of RK Heli-ski is located within the Panorama village, and is walking distance to all Panorama lodgings, but this is not necessarily a short walk. If you don't want to walk, RK provide shuttle vans to pick you up from your accommodation.

Panorama is in British Columbia, not far from the town of Invermere. The closest gateway airport is Calgary (3.5 hours), from which there are airport shuttles available. Panorama is about 1.5-2 hours south of Banff, Canada.

RK Heliski Terrain

RK Heliski terrain is within the spectacular Purcell Mountains and the operation has access to 1,500 square km of terrain with 120 landings and 900 runs. The terrain is varied from tree skiing to open alpine areas that include glaciers. The run length is typically pretty long with approximately 800 to 1,000 metres of vertical.

RK Heli-ski can cater for a range of ability levels, and if you’re not confident about your off-piste ability, you can partake in a powder lesson at the Panorama ski resort before trying heli-skiing.

More Reasons to go with RK Heliski Canada

The one-day heliskiing trips are well priced and provide good value to get a taste of heli-skiing. The package includes breakfast, lunch, an après drink and the use of powder skis. The motto of RK is “Go Ahead and Spoil Yourself”.

We hit this one on the money! Freshie resets every night with 2' for our final day.

The hospitality, skiing and professionalism with RK are top shelf.

You have to give heli skiing a go once in your life, might as well start this season. Check out the video recap of the experience.

Bob Legasa Review of RK Heliskiing
For starters, the terrain is awesome! With choices between wide open, big GS type hauling ass glacier skiing to good steeps, perfect spaced trees, plenty of glades and lots of fun features for those who like to send it! Yeah, RK Has it going on.
Bob Legasa Review of RK Heliskiing

This is my second visit there and both times stellar. On our last visit, we hit one out of the park with over 2' of fresh on our second day. Talk about loving life that was an all timer.

Guiding is top notch with many of the guides being there for many years. If they know where the good stuff will be on that day you can rest assured you're going there. Our guide Rod Gibbons was extremely knowledgeable about the terrain and where all the little Honey Holes were.

Bob Legasa Review of RK Heliskiing
If you want to keep heli skiers happy you better have some good grub and cold pints and Choppers Landing does just that, good pub style food and plenty of beer choices.

Like I said RK has it going on. See the video on the RK Heliski page to prove it!

I am a RK Staff Member for the 10/11 Winter Season. I had the opportunity to go up snowboarding today (15th Dec 2010) and had the best day ever! Rod and Graham were excellent guides, and the snow was epic.

RK Heliski provides flexibility to get a taste of heli skiing or completely rip it up. Considering that the packages don’t include expensive lodging and all-inclusive meals (from which you only get heli belly), this makes for very inexpensive heli skiing.

See our RK Heliski review for more information. For more detailed ratings of RK heli skiing and to see how it compares to other heli skiing around the world, also see our powderhounds cat and heli ratings.
