Stellar provides custom helicopter skiing the way you dream it should be. With three friends and a guide, you will ride powder in both the Selkirk and Purcell mountain ranges. They can create the perfect ski or boarding adventure for you, from a single powder day to week long epic adventures.
Based in Kaslo at the modern Victorian Kaslo Hotel on the shores of Kootenay Lake, they have access to some of the biggest mountains in the Kootenay Rockies. Smaller groups allow you the versatility to ski/board at your own pace, whether its ripping fast or savouring the powder turn. Your guide will design the ski day to the groups desire, from open alpine bowls and chutes to steep tree skiing. It’s all possible within a day at Stellar.
Beautiful Kootenay Lake lies between the powder destination peaks and slopes of the Selkirk and Purcell Mountains. These ranges offer distinct terrain and snowpack characteristics. From rocky alpine bowls to open treeline, you’ll find what every powder skier is looking for. The terrain stretches over 80 km (50 mi) from the village of Kaslo to the northern end of the tenure. With 79,000 acres to visit, the sky is the limit!
Stellar flies with the powerful A-star helicopter. This aircraft allows all skiers to spaciously sit facing forward, so you’ll be sure to enjoy the exciting lift to the next powder descent. Stellar HeliSkiing is dedicated to offering exceptional ski days and meals, as well as arranging accommodations and spa services.
