The Private AStar is our premium, private heliski offering based out of the Hillcrest Hotel. This package flies in the exclusive Eurocopter AStar helicopter, which accommodates up to three guests plus two Selkirk Tangiers guides or two groups of up to four guests plus 1 guide each.
Your private heli ski package will begin at the Coast Hillcrest Hotel the evening before your first heliski day. You should try and check in with us at our retail shop, on the lower floor of the hotel, by 5:00pm that evening if possible. At this time, you may bring your ski/snowboard boots to get your rental equipment set up. At 6:30pm, you and your group will meet your guide for an orientation, which will then be followed by dinner in the dining room. At the orientation, we will introduce ourselves & explain what time and where we will meet the following morning for safety training, what a typical day of heli-skiing involves, as well as a weather forecast with current snow and ski conditions.
