You. Three Friends. One Guide.
The Single Day is ideal for those looking to do their first heliskiing trip or those with limited time in the Kootenays. It’s also a great way to cap off a trip to the local ski resorts in the area.A Typical Day
In Single Day heliskiing, we assess the groups skills and select runs that are in line with the groups ablity.
Stellar Heliskiing is unique for its small groups, with a higher guide to guest ratio than most other operators. For you, that means more personalized care and attention from your guide. It also enables us to be more agile and explore more interesting terrain. It’s a very different experience from many other heliskiing operators, who operate with larger groups and more (and bigger) helicopters.Explore Our Terrain

"First class Heli ski experience! Stellar's terrain is varied, and snow is exceptional - everything you could ask for - steeps, deep and great mix of gladed and wide-open blue sky runs. Guides are second to none with safety first and fun a close second. I keep coming back and back …."Reinhold Krahn - Vancouver BC - Bomber
