Our 2 Day Expedition option is quickly becoming one of our most popular packages and it’s easy to see why: 10 runs over two ski days means more time on snow, and greater flexibility when it comes to terrain selection and weather.
Confident skiers and riders can set a faster pace while tackling more challenging lines, and all guests have the freedom to explore their own accommodation and dining options around Revelstoke while still enjoying a taste of the multi-day experience.
2 Day Expedition Features
- 10 runs (8 runs guaranteed)
- Full buffet breakfast, gourmet mountain lunch and après ski snacks
- High performance powder ski or snowboard rental
- Barryvox Pulse transceiver and related safety equipment
- Backcountry safety briefing
- ACMG / IFMGA guiding services
Guests are responsible for their own accommodations and meals throughout their trip, other than as noted. This package utilizes the traditional Bell 205 helicopter which carries up to 10 guests and 2 guides. There are typically up to 3 groups per helicopter.
This package is available throughout the winter season. Skiing takes place Thursday/Friday or Saturday/Sunday with the option of running other days of the week during our busy season – contact us for availability. Please note that it is the responsibility of each guest to arrive at the Hillcrest Hotel each morning at the designated time.
At 7:30 am, skiers are required to register at our Guest Services Desk, located in the Retail Shop on the lower level of the Hillcrest Hotel. Guests will be required to fill out a release of liability waiver and check in with our ski technicians for high performance rentals. The morning also includes breakfast and safety training prior to boarding the helicopter. We break up the ski day with a delicious lunch in the mountains and end the day right with après snacks and beverages back at the Hillcrest Hotel.
On the evening before your heli day, stop by our Retail Shop (lower level of Hillcrest Hotel) before 6:30pm to be ahead of the game!
