RK Heliski Day Packages

RK Heliski is one of the few operators in BC that offers the option of "day heli skiing" of 3 or 5 runs (with options to purchase additional runs on the day).

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.

If you are staying at Panorama Mountain Resort, a day of 2 of heli skiing with RK Heliski can be the perfect adjunct to your ski holiday making it a trip of a lifetime!

If you have your own group of 5 to 7 skiers/boarders you have the option of a 5-run private day (in a smaller helicopter). You get to ski with just your group with your own guide and the pace of the day is entirely up to your and your group.

RK Heliski allows minors from the age of 14 to join a day with a consenting adult. Full-time students get a discounted rate from the full adult rate.

All day packages include the guided heli skiing, transport, breakfast, lunch, and use of powder skis and an avalanche transceiver.

Below is a short teaser of what you can expect on a day with RK Heliski.....

Minor Policy 1. Our Insurer has established the minimum age to Heliski is 14 years of age. (We may ask to see proof) In all cases the Guardian must ski with the minor every run. Also, it must be known that the Guide can cancel the minors skiing at anytime, if in their judgment the minor could jeopardize the safety or enjoyment of the other adult guests. They must also understand that if the Guardian stops skiing for any reason the minor will have to also.
2. A waiver will be signed by the Guardian separately.
3. A second waiver will also be signed by both the minor and the guardian.
