ABOVE THE PEAKS
For those of you feeling confident enough after a day of private lessons, we’ll arrange a morning of heli-skiing. This is by far the best way to take on the Whistler Blackcomb Mountains, as you’ll discover untouched powder that’ll be a pleasure to speed across. What’s more, the ride in the helicopter is an experience in itself. Soar above snow-capped forests and see Whistler from an entirely different perspective. Then, when you’re back on firm ground, enjoy a glass of wine and watch the snow fall as you sit alongside a roaring fire.
Just as you recover from the excitement of heli-skiing, you’ll be climbing aboard a dog sled for a high-octane experience of a completely different kind. Encourage your canine friends as they race you across the spectacular woodland terrain of the Callaghan Valley. Rest at an abandoned trapper’s camp on Totem Lake and learn all about your dog sledding team. If you’re really curious about how it all works, then join the musher in harnessing and leading your pack as you head back towards home.
SNOWMOBILES AND HELICOPTERS
On your penultimate day in this winter wonderland, you’ll enjoy a full day adventure that will see you travel across the wilderness to Bralorne, a remote town situated to the North of Whistler. Venture over the Hurley Mountain pass on your very own snowmobile and enjoy breathtakingly vistas as you whizz past before tucking into a delicious lunch at a local miners pub. It’s an ideal, once-in-a-lifetime experience to gear you up for your final day activities, which will see you back up above the clouds on a private helicopter tour. Your pilot will transport you to the beauty of the Pemberton Ice Cap. Canada’s southernmost ice fields, you’ll spend hours exploring a world of glistening ice and snow that’s constantly changing. Natural ice sculptures and labyrinthine glacial chambers; if there’s one way to end a winter adventure in Canada, this is it.
