For the tour we’re headed to Panorama Mountain Resort which is home to the legendary RK Heliski and Red Mountain which is home to the worlds biggest cat ski operation, Big Red Cats.
RK HELISKI WATCH HERE
Spend your first two days riding Panorama Mountain Resort with your guides. The terrain here ranges from perfect corduroy groomers, perfect for laying down high speed carves to ‘backcountry style’ runs in Taynton Bowl, which is patrolled, ex-heliski terrain. This is the perfect warm up for the following heli days. Taynton bowl is accessible via a short hike, which largely keeps the crowds out, so you can expect to find pockets of powder, long after a storm has passed. Taynton Bowl offers deep snow, perfectly spaced trees, long runs and endless lines all to yourself. And for 2018, Taynton is bigger, better, and badder with a massive terrain expansion. This monstrous new terrain is ‘Where the Wild Things Are’. And it’s definitely where the wild things will go! The new area boasts four huge new double black lines. Panorama now has 1300 metres of vertical, that’s an additional 75 metres, and an additional 52 hectares of terrain, and a new resort distance record for a ski run, at over 6.5 km long! This brand new alpine zone is now in-bounds and part of the resort’s regular safety patrol.
Of course the highlight of this tour is the heli-skiing, racking up a minimum of 10 runs over 2 days. Expect to ride deep snow and fresh lines every run. RK Heliski is one of the highest operations in North America, with consistent, light, dry snow and very few cancelled days and a huge amount of vertical.You’ll get to ride the legendary Jumbo Valley and the Purcell Mountains (3000m+) with runs ranging from incredible open bowls, long glaciated runs and and many other areas that comprise of perfect gladed tree runs.
We then transfer to Rossland / Red Mountain where we stay in our own luxury ski lodge on Mountain at ‘Red’. We will spend a full day out with Big Red Cats, which has some of the best glade skiing in the world. You can look forward to amazing snow quality here. The runs are generally between 1200-1800 feet each and we’ll typically get to ride 10 runs.
Throughout the trip we stay in twin share, on-mountain accommodation, with the heli pad just a stones throw away and North America’s largest slope side hot pools nearby, ready for us to kick back with a few frothy’s after scoring the best lines of our life. Fully hosted and guided. If you’re looking for THE ultimate heli & cat ski adventure, then this tour is for you!
