Getting ready

It is important to be in good physical shape to come heli-skiing or boarding. The fitter you are the more enjoyable your day will be. Getting a few days in on the ski hill is not a bad idea either and if you can, a powder ski lesson. Please bring your ski or snowboard boots and your skis and/or board if you choose to use your own.  We encourage our guests to use our big basket ski poles as they work best for your ski bundle.  For sunny days, make sure to bring sunglasses and skin protection. Clothing should be layered for sub-zero temperatures. At altitudes exceeding 3000 meters (10,000 ft) and with annual snowfalls of 1100 centimeters (36 ft) goggles, hat/helmet and ski gloves are necessary. It is best to dress warm and in layers. Personal backpacks are not allowed, Guest Packs will be provided. A typical day at RK Heliski / First time Heli-skiiers and heli-snoboarders
