This season at Bighorn we welcomed both seasoned heliskiers and enthusiastic novices who were excited to discover the ultimate ski thrill. Revelstoke is the perfect place to try heli skiing, with wide glacial bowls, light powder snow, stunning scenery and fantastic lift skiing at Revelstoke Mountain Resort if you don’t want to commit to a week-long heliski package. If you are going to splurge on heliskiing, make sure you do it at Bighorn. The amazing lodge compliments the indulgence of skiing from a helicopter and the world-class amenities mean you aren’t sad to return home at the end of each day. Best of all, the back up option on a bad weather day is a day spent skiing the incredible terrain at RMR.
We caught up with Sam, who heliskied for the first time at Bighorn and wanted to share an insight into this amazing experience:
“I had huge hopes for my heli ski experience and I’m pleased to say that it exceeded all expectations. It was reassuring to have the expert avalanche training in Bighorn’s grounds with Selkirk Tangiers. It’s good to know about all the measures that are taken to keep skiers safe as well as having the chance to practice what to do if the worst happens. Each morning, we relaxed in the Great Room, watched our helicopter land and literally just hopped in! The thrill when the heli surges upwards towards the mountain tops gets you every time. As the thud of the helicopter fades away, my 3 best friends and I were left in the silence to contemplate our surrounds and the dream runs that stretched below. The week was a haze of powder pillows, endless feather-light turns and a lot of whooping! It was an experience I’ll treasure forever, but one I will endeavour to repeat very soon”.
