This time we have been a group of 5 and we had the best day at Rk Heliski ever. I visit RK since 1995, 3 years in a row now. The weather looked not so nice, thats why we skied in the lower tree's in a foot+ new snow. Rod , the head guide, is our favorite instructor. We had a great time. For all guys complaining about some short runs : We always get a FREE run, if we got some weather related shorter run's. Thank you RK team, we see you back next year, we can't wait !!!!!!!!!!

Starting off the briefing in the morning was very well organized and I really appreciated the emphasis on safety. However a big drawback despite I clearly stated in the morning when checking in that I would love to be be in the most advanced/expert/experienced/professional group I was placed in the beginner group! As I noted this and mentioned to the guide he ignored the comment saying all gets better. Apparently it did not change, as I mentioned my frustration again that a) group is not ‘expert’ b) selected runs are quite disappointing the first run was ~~300hm, the second one was longer though the third one as only half of the second ~300hm all rather flat and not at all spectacular despite best conditions. During the joint lunch with the other groups with quite some resistance I could change the group from there it got much better though not the scale I expected – the very last run we did was what I would have imagined at least for every run. Feedback provided was not at all appreciated rather ignored and passive aggressive addressed with comments 'why you make a mess in front of the group' (Note comments were made to the guides in private NOT in front of the group)  or ‘you may go heliskiing to Alaska’ Overall this was not an great experience at all. In the hindsight that this was likely one of the best days in terms of conditions, clear sky, low avalanche risk hence it is even more disappointing. In addition no pictures were shared post the skiing despite promised in the morning.   Funniest thing to charge for an additional run, yes I did 6 runs though of the ‘3’ runs prior to lunch only one was a proper one the two other ones either super short of half a run.

3 days of incredible snowboarding. Always felt safe and had solid terrain, from glaciers to trees. Rented their board and glad I did since I was in 1 -2 feet of fresh powder each day, of varying surface quality, as we dropped elevation or went in and out of woods.

This was a bucket list item of mine for several years. I love and I mean love to ski but have not skied a lot of powder. Mostly groomed trails. RK is a complete professional outfit. They especially take safety as their top priority. I did the 3 run option given my inexperience in powder and helisking. Make no mistake, even tho I am a strong intermediate skier on groomed runs, this was a challenge for me. The powder was very deep and somewhat dense having settled from the previous day. I was exhausted from several falls and had a hard time negotiating the wider powder skis. The terrain was steep in places and I couldn’t seem to get a handle on speed. This caused me to get in the back seat and then whamo! Nevertheless, this company was awesome and I mean awesome! So professional and Mike the guide was the best! I think if I were to do this again I would search out a more gradual introduction to powder, less steep terrain and more coaching!
