Do I need to sign a waiver in order to come Heliskiing with you?
Yes. In order to heliski/board at Eagle Pass two signed waivers are required.
A electronic waiver will be presented upon confirming your trip via our Guest Portal. This electronic waiver (and a completed Registration form) need to be completed before any payment is taken. You will then be asked to physically sign a waiver on the first morning of your trip. Both waivers confirm you agree you have given up legal rights, including the right to sue.
A sample waiver for your review before booking a trip can be found here.
Where is Eagle Pass Heli?
We are based out of Revelstoke, BC, located in the Columbia Valley between the Selkirk and Monashee Mountains. We are a 2.5 hr drive from the Kelowna International Airport, 5 hrs from Calgary International Airport and 6+ hrs from the Vancouver International Airport.
How many other people will I be skiing with?
We Heliski in groups of 4, so you will be skiing with your Guide and 3 others for the day. Your group will be sharing the Helicopter with 2 other groups, but you will be skiing independently and only meeting up at lunch.
We aren’t a group of 4, will the seats be left empty?
No, these seats will be sold to other guests. For this reason, we highly recommend booking as a group of 4 to avoid disappointment due to group pairings.
What happens if we can’t fly?
Eagle Pass Heli typically logs just 3 – 4 down days on average a season due to weather. Our Tenure supports excellent skiing in the trees and our close proximity to our tenure allows us to get out skiing everyday possible. Please review our Terms and Conditions for more information on our Cancellation/Refund Policy.
How long are the runs?
Our runs typically average 500m (1,650 ft). This changes depending on where we’re skiing, and flying conditions. The longest run in our tenure is 1,767 meters (5,800 feet).
What’s the best way to get to Revelstoke?
A far as ground transportation goes, your best bet is to fly out of Kelowna International Airport, as the drive from both Vancouver and Calgary require passing through numerous high mountain passes that make a challenging drive at night or in stormy winter conditions.
As all routes into/out of Revelstoke close periodically due to avalanche control and accidents, we highly recommend arriving to Revelstoke 1 day before your Heli trip and purchasing trip cancellation insurance before you depart for your trip.
Please review the Guest Cancellation section of our Terms and Conditions for more details.
I have a Go-Pro and a few cameras, should I bring everything?
You will need to carry what you bring, and there’s not much room for extra gear in your Avalanche Pack. You might have time to take your phone out for a quick shot, but it's a pretty fast paced day out there and we recommend leaving the bulky camera gear at home.
I have some great photos, how can I share them with the rest of my group?
