When is the best time to go heliskiing? And where???
The answer to this question could be very different depending on the person. Everyone has their own idea of the perfect day heli-skiing. Some people enjoy the long glacier runs, while others would prefer steep trees in deep powder. Unfortunately, the weather can’t be controlled and all types of conditions are found throughout the winter. But we have compiled a guideline that we use to help people decide when and where to go heli-skiing depending on their desired conditions. Remember there is no guarantee that the weather will cooperate!
