You know your at snowboard friendly heliskiing operation when they hand you a sticker like this…
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.
I think I just had the pillow line of my life… I am so stoked! We better call to see if Sleep country wants all their pillows back – Mikel Witlox
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
Commit Snow and Skates owner Adam Laurin gave the goods a once over test as well.
