West Coast Ski Buffet

Our West Coast Ski Buffet trip is ideal for anyone that want to sample a bunch of different skiing, not just one main entrée! It includes a selection of our most popular trips all packed into one amazing adventure! The first course is a day with one of our pro's showing you the secret powder stashes in the backcountry behind Whistler-Blackcomb, this is followed up with some ski touring in the amazing backcountry around Squamish or maybe a helicopter bump in to the Tantalus Range for some amazing alpine turns. For the main course we will spend a day heli-skiing the ruggedly beautiful glaciers and peaks of the Coast Range with the ocean at our feet!

Skiing

How it Works:

Just grab a group of 4 people that love to ski and let us take it from there! You can pick one of the standard menu items below or we can customize one that works better for you. We even have a scheduled Ski Buffet every once in a while. After that, let us take care of everything from your accommodation from the night before the trip to the day after, airport shuttles if you need it and of course your lunch every day!

The 4-Day Ski Buffet:

  • 1 Day of Helicopter Access Ski Touring off Garibaldi (possible summit)
  • 1 Day of Backcountry Skiing off the S2S Gondola or Whistler
  • 1 Day of Helicopter Access Ski Touring in the Tantalus Zone
  • 1 Day of Heli Skiing

The 4-Day Ski Tour Only Buffet:

  • 1 Day of Helicopter Access Ski Touring off Garibaldi (possible summit)
  • 1 Day of Backcountry Skiing off the S2S Gondola or Whistler
  • 1 Day of Helicopter Access Ski Touring in the Tantalus Zone
  • 1 Day of Ski Touring in the Gargoyles or Anif Areas.

The 3-Day Ski Tour Buffet:

  • 1 Day of Helicopter Access Ski Touring off Garibaldi (possible summit)
  • 1 Day of Backcountry Skiing off the S2S Gondola

The 3-Day Ski Buffet:

  • 1 Day of Helicopter Access Ski Touring off Garibaldi (possible summit)
  • 1 Day of Helicopter Access Ski Touring in the Tantalus Zone
  • 1 Day of Heli Skiing

The order of the days can vary based on the weather as we can't fly on cloudy days. But that's fine, stormy days are best in the trees anyway so we will spend snowy days touring off the ski hill or Duffy area while sunny days mean we're headed up in the helicopter!

Because we will be using an A-Star for the heli accessed ski touring and the heli-skiing groups of 4 are needed to really make this trip work. That being said, if you have a smaller or larger group and we may be able to work with you to fill out the numbers.
