Whistler heli skiing operates beyond the ski lifts of Whistler and Blackcomb and is the ultimate high-alpine experience. Carve through untracked powder, endless terrain and breath-taking scenery.

With hundreds of ski runs, there is a tremendous variety of slopes to accommodate all levels of skiers and boarders from intermediate to expert. The skiing varies from wide-open glaciers to beautiful gladed tree runs.

Whistler Snow Report - The Season so Far

After a slow start to November we can safely say that winter is well and truly arrived and we will be having a very white Christmas throughout the Whistler Blackcomb valley.

The snow has been falling constantly for the last 7 days and we have seen an epic 74cm in the last 48 hours. The base on mid-mountain is now over 2 meters and we have already had over 5 meters of snow fall with plenty more forecast for the next week. All runs are open with ski outs possible to the valley in Creekside, Whistler Village and Blackcomb base. Out of bounds runs like the infamous Kyber Pass are filled in and there are plenty of fresh lines to be had if you know where to go!

Pow for day 1

Today we hit the hill with our first campers of the season. We were greeted with 22cm of new snow, on top of the 38cm from the day before. Everyone came out of the gate swinging, and at some stages wading out of all the new snow. In the end everyone came away from the day stoked, ready to push it, and learn more tomorrow.

Julian, Gillian, and Raf stoked on all the pow in the trees.
