We did a one day trip with this outfit. Stellar service and first class at every point throughout the experience. Select your group wisely. Accurately judge your skiing ability and put yourself in the correct group. Thank you for creating incredible memories for my Dad and I. We will be back every year. Thank you Vail Resorts preserving this unique Whistler experience.

If you're a skier or boarder, this is a must do at some point in your life and hopefully multiple times. - Experience: I skied in April and despite fairly warm temps were able to find some nice powder turns. Super fun day, skied four runs in the morning and four in the afternoon (six run package and added two extra). Half of the experience is being in the helicopter and the views are amazing. Apres after was fun to relive the day afterwards with a beer. Lunch is a really cool experience, food was good and was awesome sitting outside taking in the views. - Safety: Before heading out, did a full in depth review of ski safety including avalanche prep and reviewed safety of the helicopter. - Heli: Flew on the Bell 407 which is an awesome experience. I have flown on the 212 before which is good too. - Guide: Had Paige who was great with the group, super knowledgeable and a long time employee. Overall a really amazing experience and something that every skier should do at some point.

There has not been much snow on lower elevations, so decided to make an early season heli-ski with Whistler Heli-Skiing. By way of background, I am in my early 70’s, and this was just my fourth time out this season. I have quite a bit of backcountry experience and have heli-skied in a number of different locations. Was a bit concerned when I found I had at least 35 years over the next older rider, but it was a pretty strong group and everyone did fine. Nice runs, excellent snow, bluebird day, and a great group. Thanks to our guide Rob, and excellent pilot. Very professional and competent operation. And their photographer/videographer is awesome. Give it a try if there is low snow, or big crowds at the main resort!

Overall it was awesome. It was on my bucket list, and I am glad I did it. To help others pick the right level, I'll say I am an older woman who is an expert level skiier who skis mostly in Tahoe. I have some powder experience and off-piste experience too, but I wouldn't have called my powder experience "extensive" as they claim you need to have to do the ultimate package.(Tahoe isn't exactly known for powder though I have skiied in other places too). I was fairly fit through cycling and rowing. I was not sure if my powder experience was sufficient, but if you have skiied powder above your knees before and understand how to do it, I would say don't worry. Also, the booking folks tried to say how exhausting just even one or two runs would be as if I wouldn't last for 6. I suspect that was because of my age and gender . lol. Trust your own understanding of your fitness levels. Can you ski expert runs top to bottom on a normal mountain without getting tired? If so this will be even easier. The tour company will try to sort of intimidate you into a lower level package. I am glad I did go with the ultimate package. We did 7 runs. The last was the best and only one I would say was truly expert level as there we just two of us left and the guide finally took us through some challenging exciting terrain. The first 6 runs were beautiful, had great fresh powder, but were not super challenging. I would say the first 6 runs were more like advanced runs, not expert but they did have fresh powder. I heard at the apres-ski party that a large percentage of the lower level groups did not finish their runs and had to be taken back early. I suspect that was just due to not knowing how to handle powder.

It was my first time heli-skiing and it was great. Everything was prepared and operated in a professional way. Our guide, Steve, cool and a real Pro. Don't miss the after-heli-ski party!
