You and your friends start the day with a heli-accessed drop, then continue touring for the rest of the day.

ADVENTURE INFORMATION

Go further this winter! Escape the crowds in a private helicopter that takes you deep into the Tantalus Range. Grouped with your friends and qualified guide, start the day with a helicopter line, then continue touring for the rest of the day.

Conditions are almost always favourable with lots of powder to ensure great turns for all. Your experienced ski guide will lead you down some memorable descents. Intimate group sizes provide individual attention and a day at the right pace.

If the weather conditions do not allow the helicopter to fly, we will arrange an alternative date with you or offer an alternative product for the same day that does not require the use of a helicopter (in this instance, any helicopter costs will be refunded).

Tour Options: Private (up to 4 passengers per group). Ask for prices for 5 or more passengers.

Pick up option at end of day is available for an additional cost.

Includes: Professional guide and a helicopter flight to the site (Tantalus trips include a return flight).

Not Included: Touring equipment rentals (can be arranged). Transportation to the heli-port can be arranged for a fee.
