Visitor reviews for Kingfisher Heliskiing Ski Resort
Ski Resort Rating: Rate Kingfisher Heliskiing
November 15, 2017
Endre Lovaas from Norway
Having tried out 20+ heliski operations all over the world, mostly in AK and BC, I can honestly state that Kingfisher Heliskiing is my favorite due to two very important factors (for me): flexibility and location.
Flexibility: as for general package offering, duration, lodging options, terrain options and so on. Kingfisher can accommodate any need and wallet. Stay at the Sparkling Hill Resort or the more rustic Gold Panner lodge, with the helicopter parked outside your door.
Location: as for only a good hour´s drive from Kelowna airport, with no need to spend extra days for long (bus) transfers on often closed roads. For me this is crucial, since I don´t have time to spend two extra transfer days on top of the skier days I manage to squeeze in during the season.
In addition, Kingfisher uses the A-Star B3 helicopters, as one of very few heliski operations in North America. Faster and safer; more skiing for the buck. And the terrain options are both awesome and huge, from steep alpine stuff via bowls with burned trees to classic BC tree skiing. And the guides are awesome too.
