Experience 40-plus years of guiding and local Purcell Mountain knowledge
rk heliski, originally named Radium Hot Springs Glacier Skiing was founded in 1970 by Roger Keith Madson and was incorporated in the spring of 1972. Guests can expect to experience wide-open alpine slopes, scenic glaciers and gladed forests. The Purcell Mountain, which is a famously great heli zone, is only just 10 to 15 minutes in the helicopter from rk's heli-plex.
Additional package options
The 3-Run packages are geared more for intermediate skiers and first-time heli-skiers or –snowboarders. For more advanced skiers and snowboarders looking for more runs, the 5-Run Powder Adventure is an excellent choice. Each run averages about 2,600 to 2,800 vertical feet.
Extra runs are available for purchase with the 5-Run package. If you’re seeking a more exclusive experience, rk heliski offers several private heli skiing packages. In a Powder Private you and six of your friends or family members can enjoy five runs and your own personal guide. The pace of the day is determined by what you want. Those who want upgraded perks like gourmet meals and personalized guiding service will want to explore the Powder Elite and Powder Platinum packages.
