Heliboarding at Purcell Heliskiing

Only a couple hour drive from Calgary is a Heliskiing operation who embraces snowboarding clients with open arms – Purcell Heliskiing.  This heli-boarding operation is by a family who has a long history in the industry dating back from heliskiing’s  inception in Canada.

The terrain is fantastic and our crew got a mix bag of cut blocks, alpine, tree riding, bumps, and pillow lines.

Mikel Witlox our team rider at Heliboarding Canada is as keen to drop whatever we can throw at him – and with this little pillow section that could be viewed over lunch at their mountain side cabin – Mikel was stoked x 10.

When you get an opportunity to get only a glimpse of the vast terrain at Purcell, the one thing is a certainty. Your gonna leave satisfied but come home wanting to see and experience more. – Heliboarding Canada

Heliboarding culture always intersects with skiing culture – especially heliskiing.  Our guide Jeff ski’s and snowboards and on our second day of guides us on a snowboard.

This to us is just a demonstration of balance that we felt with the family at Purcell they pay homage to their roots and are innovating to the future across both generations.

See our upcoming interviews with Jeff on Powder Guides

Stay tuned as we start pulling together footage from Purcell and we share with you more from Canada’s #HeliboardingHeaven (follow our images with that hashtag)

Heliboarding’s Fit for a King trip!

We had 4 days of filming up at Snowwater and it was “Fit for a king”

This place is a one of a kind operation.

“Nestled deep in Nelson’s backcountry is a popular boutique heliski operation that is fit for a king called Snowwater Heliskiing. Getting an opportunity to enjoy this royal powder feast may not be easy. The owners have been making a name for themselves and it has become difficult to get a on a trip simply because their loyal returning guests keep re-booking year after year.  But this should not stop you from getting a taste of this powder mecca.”- Scott Martin / Vancouver Sun
