About Purcell Heli Skiing

Skiing/boarding takes place on alpine glaciers and open slopes, as well as in the trees and gladed areas of the subalpine forest. We strive to meet our guests' needs and to provide the most exclusive, safest heli-skiing/boarding experience possible.

Our heli-ski area lies a few minutes flight away and covers over 2,000 square kms (772 square miles - west of Golden and North of the Bugaboos - in the Purcell Mountains. These mountains of Interior British Columbis are famouns for their reliable amounts of fresh snow and exceptional powder.

Wehave over 250 runs offering every conceivable type of terrain and exposure. Over the years, Purcell Heli-Skiing has explored and skied the mountain ranges of the Dogtooth, Mc Murdo, Spillimacheen, Bobbie Burns and Battle Range areas

As a small company offering over 35 years of experience, we are dedicated to providing our guests with the highest quality of service. Rather than envouraging vertical records, our aim is to offer a thrilling but comfortable skiing/boarding adventure at a relaxed pace.

Throughout the operation, you will find a friendly atmosphere and helpful staff to look after you. Our entire team has a passion for the mountains and we enjoy what we are doing! We would be delighted to share our experience with you, as our guest in the Purcell Mountains.
