Find yourself daydreaming throughout the year for endless, deep powder? Start your season off right this year and turn your dreams into reality with GO Heli Cat Skiing starting December 1st.
Heli skiing in British Columbia has quickly become a “must do experience” for powder enthusiasts across the world. One of the most frequently asked questions we hear is, “When is the best time of year to come Heliskiing?” The consensus among B.C heli ski guides is that December has it all. Not only do we historically average a 2 meter (6.5 foot) base at tree line by early December, but there are less guests and less tracks in the tenures. The opportunity to lay down the first tracks of the season only happens once each year.
The incredible riding in December is a bit of a “Local Secret” due to a few key factors:
#1 COLD SNOW: December has the shortest days of the year. This may seem like a negative, but it also means that the sun has very little ability to affect the runs. Due to this, all aspects (North, South, East and West facing slopes) of the mountain are holding light, dry powder for your skiing pleasure.
#2 COLD TEMPERATURES: The short days go hand in hand with cold temperatures. This again helps preserve the light, dry snow for many days after the last storm cycle.
#3 HIGH-QUALITY POWDER: The combination of short days and cold temperatures create the light and dry “Cold Smoke” that powder fanatics search for year-round. This is the snow that you only need to experience once to be hooked for life.
We don’t want to keep this “Local Secret” to ourselves – Heliskiing is always more fun in groups of 4! Start your season off with a trip that will be memorable for years, book the Day Heliski program today and save $276 off our standard package rate, plus receive our Unlimited Vertical Upgrade for free – a combined savings of over $550**
