Whistler Heli Skiing Packages

Unlike the classic multi-day Canadian style heliski packages at backcountry lodges, Whistler Heli Skiing offers single day trips.

This provides the huge benefit of being able to stay at Whistler and enjoy all its fabulousness, and having the flexibility to decide whether you want to do just one day of heli skiing or multiple days.
