Deep December and Small Group Heliskiing - Revelstoke, BC
It starts in November. Sometimes it even begins late in October. The first snowline - the most talked about news in Revelstoke. This marks the beginning of Deep December fever. Instagram lights up with images of powder skiing in all its forms. A highly contagious condition, you know you’ve caught a case of it when fomo sets in. There is just one cure: Time to SKI.
Revelstoke is a world-class destination for heliskiers. All winter long the boom of rotors echoes down the valley at daybreak and returns an hour before alpenglow. It’s our civic soundtrack.
December is untracked. It has no history. While the fashion scene in town may be street shoes and a light puffy, up in the Monashees, winter is full-on. Snow is quietly and rapidly accumulating.
December has a unique pace. Daylight approaches slowly, building anticipation. You are prepped and ready in the dark. Line-ups at the Modern and La Baguette coffee shops are out the door. Skiers are chomping at the bit because December days don’t wait. When go-time hits, we rock and roll. Get those rotors spinning.
Small groups, local knowledge
In December, our deep snowpack is in its early stages. Runs are not always filled in the way we like them. This is when our guides really shine, picking out lines that are not often skied, and taking full advantage of low angle sun exposure and sheltered snow. It’s a sweet short window of opportunity.
Home away from home
Tired, worked and pumped at the end of their day, our lodge guests can kick back by the fireplace or pony up to the bar with après snacks prepared by our chef. Enjoy yourself. We are here to take care of the rest.
Staying in Revy? If you’re up for it after your day of shredding, there are brew pubs, restaurants, and craft distilleries. The city is small and personal – like us.
We love to ski. At Eagle Pass Heli, December is the month of untouched firsts. Let us show you around, take you into the trees, high up in the alpine, or shoot the chutes. Catch the December fever. We’ll be here when you come back for more.
