At Selkirk Tangiers Helicopter Skiing (STHS), guests, friends and employees are celebrating 37 years of powder skiing and snowboarding.
A fourth generation Swiss mountain guide, STHS founder Peter Schlunegger introduced helicopter skiing to the Revelstoke area and the Selkirk Mountains in 1978. Thirty years later, his vision has become a successful reality.
The tradition of guiding in the Selkirk Mountains runs deep. In 1899, Karl Schlunegger, the great-grandfather of Peter, became one of the first guides to work from the historic Glacier House lodge in Rogers Pass, in what would become Glacier National Park.
It is an exciting time to join us in Revelstoke. Selkirk Tangiers was purchased in 2007 by Revelstoke Mountain Resort (RMR). This new development allowed us to combine the amazing potential of the resort with STHS's unrivaled terrain. Guests are provided with access to both world class helicopter skiing/boarding and North America's most exciting new ski resort, which boasts the highest vertical descent in North America - 1713m (5620 ft).
The Hillcrest Hotel serves as our main base, where our guests stay and enjoy the finer qualities of life with superb dining and accommodations. STHS moved into the hotel once construction was completed in 1999 and the lodge continues to be an exceptional facility for our operation - here you will find a well-stocked retail store, boot room, and ski rentals. The office for our reservation staff is located on the main floor in the newly renovated lobby. We take pride in making you feel at home in a casual setting that allows guests to relax throughout their vacation with us.
Though our staff have diverse backgrounds, passion for the snow, mountains, and exceptional customer service bring them all together. Selkirk Tangiers promotes and fosters a friendly working environment where staff work together to create an unforgettable guest experience.
