SnowWater Heli Skiing Photo Gallery


The helitracks crew had the great pleasure to visit Snowwater heli skiing in early 2012.
We have a lot more to share about our visit to Snowwater, in the meantime here are some of the photos we took on our trip. We would also like to thank Patrick, Maria, and the Snowwater staff for an incredible experience.

Stellar Heli Skiing is attracting a lot of attention lately and when you start attracting attention in the ski business you can get your self on the radar of film crews! Here is an awesome little promo video for Stellar Heliskiing shot by Absinthe Films, Brain Farm and Mike Parenteau Films.

Do yourself a favor, take a break from work and check out this video. Then do yourself a huge favor, call three of your best friends and book a trip to Stellar Heliskiing. Jason, Martin and the crew are a heck of a lot of fun to ski with.

Bird's Eye of a Burn

Great Canadian Heliskiing from the air

Here is a little gem of an edit we found on the web this morning. It is produced by B4Apres Media from a recent Christmas / New Years 2011 trip to Great Canadian Heliskiing. It features some amazing bird's eye view video from above a very picturesque burn area with some chill tunes courtesy of the GCH staff and guests!

CMH shines with Warren Miller

Canadian Mountain Holidays shows what they have to offer in the British Columbia Interior

We just had the chance to see Warren Miller's 62nd film ...Like There's No Tomorrow. One segment that really stuck out to us was the amazing blower pow from British Columbia's Monashee Mountains. Canadian Mountain Holidays is legendary in the heli-skiing world, and this sneak peak shows you why.

Between the Frames with Sherpas Cinemas on Powder TV

Deep DEEP powder skiing with James Heim

This video popped up on our radar this morning and we saw that there is a short shot of a helicopter in it. We don't know which operator but we figured that since we saw the chopper that was all we needed to post it! This is a heli-centred website afterall. 

We apologize up front because the powder shots in this little video will ruin your day if you are sitting in an office! Tell ya what, check out our list of operators here, give one a call and book a trip. There has been a few storm cycles roll through lately and we are expecting an epic March. Come on now...pick up that phone, fake an illness and get out of the office!


At Snowwater Heli Skiing with Zack Giffin and Callum Pettit

La Nina, baby come back!

Here is a little look back at some La Nina powder from up at Snowwater last season. In January 2011, Zack Giffin and Callum Pettit headed up for a quick trip to Snowwater Heliskiing outside of Nelson BC. They took along photographer Grant Gunderson and tore up the place for a few days. Here is some great footage of the nice pillow lines one could expect at Snowwater this season...

Word on the street is that the snow is piling up at Snowwater and they will be all fired up for another La Nina pounding! They even put a little extra work in this early season and got their back-up cat roads into Peak 2 which is a first from what we hear.

For now, enjoy the video, check out Snowwater's availability, book a trip, and then just try to get some work done!

Stellar bags another Cover shot!

This time it's the cover of Transworld Snowboarding

Stellar Heliskiing is on a roll this season. Last month they ended up on the coveted cover of Powder Magazine and this month they are featured on the cover of Transworld Snowboard Magazine! We recall Jason from Stellar telling us late last season that he was hosting a few film crews that were bound for Alaska but instead stayed around the Kootenays. We can see why...

The above video is a segment from the Transworld that they are doing for each cover shot. It tells a little bit more of the story of how the cover came to be. It also shows just how big the terrain is at Stellar Heli!

Another great shot guys. Congrats on the exposure!

Stellar HeliSkiing Make the cover of Powder Magazine

BC's youngest heli skiing operation gets a boost from Powder Magazine

Ever since we were kids we dreamed about getting our picture in Powder Magazine. What is the next best thing to getting yourself on the pages of Powder? Having your heliskiing company featured on the cover! Jason Remple, founder of Stellar Heliskiing in Kaslo BC did just that with this awesome shot of Chad Sayers. The pic was taked during a window of sunshine in the middle of last season's epic La Nina storm cycle. The man behind the camera was Jordan Manely (Sherpas). Great shot from a great operation. We are looking forward to checking out Stellar this season and bringing you more photos, stories and videos of the experience.

If you are looking for an amazing experience in the mountains, consider Stellar Heli Skiing this season. Their rates are reasonable and their terrain looks epic. We had the pleasure of skiing with Jason as our guide on another trip last season and we can tell you, he is an excellent guide. We also just got word that our good friend Martin (formerly of Valhalla PowderCats) has joined the Stellar team. With another La Nina season around the corner, incredible terrrain and a guiding staff that is second to none, Stellar will be the place to heliski this season!
