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.
Scotty, this place is like ordering a big stack of pancakes and bacon at greasy spoon diner the morning after a hangover. Its got everything you crave man.. seriously- Adam Laurin
Heliboarding Canada is supported by Trapper Snowboards located in Revelstoke B.C. The “Heli- Rage” Edit 2013-14 is a short edit of snowboarding in B.C.’s backcountry destinations with Heliboarding Canada and filming with Laundromat Studios.
Trapper builds their cores entirely from locally harvested timber that is carefully selected and scrutinized through the whole process as it is transformed from a log to the core of a snowboard. Trapper snowboards are Revelstoke down to the core. http://www.TrapperSnowboards.com
