For close to 50 years, rk heliski has been sharing our passion for truly incredible backcountry skiing and snowboarding. The legendary Jumbo Valley comprises perfect treed glade ski runs. Whereas The rooftop of the purcells house our epic high altitude glacier runs.
RK Heliski, originally named Radium Hot Springs Glacier Skiing was founded in 1970 by Roger Keith Madson and was incorporated in the spring of 1972. The original operation utilized a short take-off and landing aircraft based from the airstrip in Radium B.C.
RK Heliski operated out of Radium utilizing helicopters for transportation until 1979. RK then moved operations adjacent to Panorama Resort, where it operated until 1987. In 1988 construction was completed for the “Heli Plex”, the final home of RK Heliski.
