Stellar Heliskiing is based in the small Kootenay village of Kaslo. Kaslo is on the western shoreline of Kootenay Lake and surrounded by the mighty Purcell and Selkirk mountain ranges. The Kootenays are known for their laid back vibe, friendly people, and an uncontainable love of mountain culture. You can’t help but be relaxed – and stoked – when you’re spending time here. It feels genuine, and far removed from the glitzy hype of many resort towns.
Kaslo is small, so you’re able to easily walk everywhere, but still boasts a great range of places to eat, drink, and shop. For the multi day heliskiing packages, you’ll be staying at the historic Kaslo Hotel. It’s in the heart of town and offers incredible views of the lake and surrounding mountains. In fact, you’ll be able to see the runs you’re skiing in the Purcells while you’re drinking a beer on the hotel patio.
The Kaslo Hotel offers hotel rooms and suites. All the hotel rooms have private balconies with mountain or lake views. All the suites have full kitchens and sleep 4-8 people (depending on the suite). At the end of a long day guests can relax in the hot tub or have dinner in the restaurant which is a locals’ favourite for its creative menu and excellent selection of international and local beers on tap.
