Your heli ski package will begin Saturday evening at the Coast Hillcrest Hotel with an orientation at 6:30pm followed by dinner (3 day packages might also begin with arrival on Wednesday). You should try and check in with us at our Retail Shop, on the lower floor of the hotel, by 5:00pm if possible. At this time, you may bring your ski boots along and get your skis set up, which will save time the following morning. At the orientation, we will introduce ourselves & explain what time we want you to meet us in the morning, what a typical day of heli-skiing involves, as well as a weather forecast along with snow and ski conditions.
