Is this tour for me?

We rate this tour as a 5/5. The beauty of heli-skiing is that you can choose which summits you’ll want to ski and have some control over the difficulty level. However, backcountry skiing is recommended for experienced and advanced skiers or snowboarders only, as the nature of the terrain makes it demanding and occasionally technical.
