The summer adventures will all take flight from the heli pad conveniently located at the base of Revelstoke Mountain Resort, just steps from The Sutton Place Hotel, and will be operated by Selkirk Tangiers Heli Skiing.

Jeff Honig, Operations Manager at Selkirk Tangiers Heli Skiing, said they are thrilled by the opportunity to introduce new and existing guests to over 50,000 acres of remarkable terrain this summer.

“While this is new territory for us as a business, it’s a familiar playing field in terms of taking guests into the mountains via helicopter,” he explained.

“I’m certain that guests are going to be blown away by the stunning alpine scenery, and we are looking forward to playing in the Selkirk peaks in warmer temperatures than we’re used to!”

Selkirk Tangiers, Revelstoke MountainAs one of the original heli-skiing operations in the Revelstoke area, Selkirk Tangiers has been offering highly successful winter programs since 1978. The recent approval of the summer tenure application from the British Columbia Ministry of Forest, Land & Natural Resources makes this exciting next step possible.

The season is scheduled to run from July 3rd until September 7th. A full list of offerings is available at www.revelstokemountainresort.com.
