Coast Range Heliskiing Announces Early Booking Offer, Opening Date & New Partnership with Foon Skis

WHISTLER, British Columbia - Nov. 4, 2013 - PRLog -- Coast Range Heliskiing’s 2013.14 winter season will officially begin on December 14th, 2013.  Guests are invited to book their heliskiing or heliboarding trip before November 15th, 2013 to save 10% off their 4 or 6 run package when they book directly with Coast Range Heliskiing.

New this year Coast Range Heliskiing announces a ski rental partnership with local ski company Foon Skis, owned by legendary ski mountaineer Johnny Foon.

Like Coast Range Heliskiing, Foon Skis is a 100% locally owned and operated company.  After 15 years designing skis that were mass produced in factories, big mountain pioneer Johnny Foon Chilton realised the only way to make the type of skis he was really looking for, was to build them himself.

All Foon Skis are made with Yellow Cedar, which is sourced locally from the forests of the Coast Mountains and has the perfect supple feel for powder skis. “Bringing the forests and the mountains together in a ski caressed into life from the hand of a passionate local creates a deep soulful ride that cannot be achieved by any other ski.” said Foon.

Coast Range Heliskiing is thrilled to partner with Foon Skis and to be able to provide guests with a ski that has such a strong connection to the mountains they will be skied on.  Coast Range Heliskiing guests can add Foon Skis rentals to their heliski day for $35 per day plus taxes, subject to availability.

“We are excited to offer our guests locally crafted, artisan skis, designed by someone who really knows and loves these mountains.  Johnny Foon is passionate about making a ski that really feels the powder, and becomes one with the skier.

Johnny’s wife, Lisa Korthals, is our Operations Manager and one of our guides, so the partnership with Foon Skis is a great fit for us.” said Tyler Freed, President of Coast Range Heliskiing.

Coast Range Heliskiing offers exclusively small group heliskiing and is Whistler/Pemberton's premier boutique heliskiing and heliboarding operation.  Following the trend in the heliskiing industry of small group experiences, Coast Range Heliskiing skis exclusively in groups of 4 to 5 people. This ensures that each guest’s needs are met, more time is spent skiing or snowboarding and less time is spent waiting for the group.

With access to over 200,000 acres (25 times the size of Whistler Blackcomb) of diverse terrain, including big mountain powder lines to secluded tree skiing, Coast Range Heliskiing has terrain that suits skiers and riders new to heliskiing, to seasoned experts.  And because their tenure covers both the Coast Mountain Range and the Northern Interior Plateau they are able to take advantage both of the huge annual coastal snowfall, and being able to fly further north to drier and clearer weather patterns on days when the weather prevents heliskiing closer to Whistler.

The 6 run Powderhound Adventure Package is their most popular package, catering to the advanced to expert skiers and snowboarders. The vertical covered is approximately 9,000 to 18,000 feet and the cost is $1,279 plus tax per person.

The 4 run Discovery Experience package is designed for intermediate to advanced skiers and snowboarders and ideal for first time heliskiers or heliboarders. The vertical covered is approximately 6,000 to 12,000 feet and the cost is $1,079 plus tax per person.

Included in the heliski day is a continental breakfast, shuttle pick up, safety gear and training, gourmet lunch in the alpine, free photos of the day for all guests, and après in the lounge.

Guests who take advantage of Coast Range Heliskiing’s early booking offer can save 10% off their 2013.14 4 run Discovery Experience package or 6 run Powderhound Package if they book before November 15, 2013 (10% offer is valid only on the 4 or 6 run package, must be booked directly with Coast Range Heliskiing and cannot be used in conjunction with any other offers).

Coast Range Heliskiing also offers private heliskiing packages, providing guests with the privilege of their own helicopter and pilot for their group, and a custom built heliski experience.


Operating since 2002, Coast Range Heliskiing is Whistler/Pemberton's premier boutique heli-skiing and heli-boarding operation. They are 100% locally owned and operated. They ski exclusively in small groups, allowing them to create a tailored experience for each and every guest. They have access to over 200,000 acres of diverse terrain from big mountain powder lines to secluded tree skiing, ensuring an unforgettable backcountry powder experience.
