Not sure if it gets much more Canadian than this!
RK Heliskiing has done something really cool. They have built an cie rink on an alpine lake at 8300ft! You can sign up for what will be an incredible experience with RK Heliskiing and be part of a mountain high hockey game. If hockey isn't quite your thing, you can book a trip with family and friends to go for an alpine skate, enjoy some lunch and take in all the scenery has to offer.
The price is just $350 per person which isn't too bad considering you get to ride in a helicopter and get some uninterrupted icetime.
- Arrive at rk heliski around 9:30am for check in and helicopter safety talk
- Fly out around 10am – 3pm. Enjoy 5hrs. approx. of ice time
- Packed lunch is provided
- Bring your own skates and sticks
- Small gym bag is allowed but keep it small. We have weight and space restrictions.
- 2 Sets of goalie equipment allowed
- After the day you can rehash the game over a few drinks at the heliplex. (Please no alcohol in the helicopter.)
- $349+ tax per person. Minumums apply.
The Shamrock Lake Rink is created on an Alpine Tarn. Although we try our best to keep the pond surface up to scratch, it may have an uneven surface. It is our commitment to give you the best experience possible. We continually clear the rink as well as flood the ice to create a smoother skating surface.

Peak Travels had some epic snow for this trip! It looks incredible. Add that to the Snowwater experience and I am sure these guys will be dreaming about this trip for a while. As Partic says in the video, at Snowwater they want you to go home tired! They do this with guaranteed unlimited vertical. Snow storm roll in? No problem, they shuffle you right into the cat standing by.

Things get playful at CMH K2 Rotor Lodge
Do you like powder? Do you like pillow drops? Do you like both put together with a dash of K2 skis added into the mix? Check out this video from CMH K2 Rotor Lodge. Located in Nakusp BC, CMH and K2 have come together and developed a unique offering where the goal is not only epic BC powder, but to search out all the hits and drops they can find. It looks like good times in the apres down at the Rotor lodge too!
Deep, light, blower pow just outside of Revelstoke BC
Bob Legasa and the crew from Freeride Media visted Selkirk Tangiers Heliskiing and filmed this tasty video for the Freeride Chronicles. Everything about their experience there looks top notch. From the epic BC powder to the hospitality to the relationships made on trips like these. As they say on the video, "it is the vacation that stays with you for years and years!"
What really sticks out about this video is the range of skiers. You have guys, ladies, experts, casual pow skiers and the ocassional back flip thrown in for good measure! Selkirk Tangiers clearly accomodates all levels of heliskiers. And the apres ski looks incredible!
