One of the local heli-ski operators claims that Revelstoke offers the best skiing on the planet, and that may not be an exaggeration.
A huge amount of Kootenay Rockies terrain that is accessible by helicopter and snowcat, combined with massive winter snowfall, places Revelstoke in a class of its own for heli-skiing and cat-skiing. With tenure over their own vast areas of powder covered slopes, guides are able to share an intimate knowledge of their particular piece of this awesome landscape. Boarders are welcome too.
There are a number of heli-skiing and cat-skiing outfits based in and near Revelstoke (each offering various packages): CMH Heli-Skiing, Mica Heliskiing, Selkirk Tangiers Heli Skiing, Eagle Pass Heliskiing, K3 Cat Ski, Revelstoke Cat Skiing, and Mustang Powder.
