2 days trips with these guys. First off, the back country guys were great. Awesome guides who really seemed to know their stuff, certainly made us feel safe and were great to be around (Nat, Rory, and Jamie I think). First day was good. Good snow, tho everything we skied had been skied over the preceding days. Powder Mountain have... More

I'm so glad to here that our guides are the best there is safety is absolute number 1. Now as for the rest, first off you skied all day and had 8 hours with those guides to say you did not want to ski the following day. No one on the cat knew you were booked 3 days, so all... More

Tuesday 7th March. Booked a private CAT for our group of mixed ability skiers and boarders. Nick, Nat and Trevor could not have done any more to make the day any more exceptional than it was. Great setup, very easy going but most importantly safety orriantated. Thanks for a brilliant day guys We will be back!

We chose Powder Mountain because they have smaller groups than Whistler, and they also offer Cat. When our Heli day had to be rescheduled we were offer Cat as an option. We were all pumped to jump out of the heli, but I heard Cat was also awesome,, and it did not disappoint. We had blue skies and fresh powder... More

We stayed in Whistler and it has been sunny without fresh snow for some days and the weather forecast for the following days are sunny. So we decided to ask Powder Mountain whether they operate and have 2 seats. They are very open for questions we have, they explain where and why they choose the area and that they went... More

What an amazing experience, a day I will never forget. Thanks to Mack and Matt for guiding us through some amazing terrain. Special thanks to Matt for helping me up out of the snow a couple of guys. The guys were so patient and very understanding that this was my first time riding backcountry. Thanks again to Mack, Matt, Pete... More

Tried Whistler-Blackcomb heli-skiing last season, but decided to try Powder Mountain this time. Great decision! The best held-skiing experience I've had! Our family of four was a 'full group', so just us and our heli guide Nathaniel. We skied on the Ashlu glacier and conditions were fantastic. A couple of wind blown, crusty runs, but three fabulous ankle deep powder... More

This review is for Powder Mountain Cat and Heli Skiing near Whistler My wife and I planned a long weekend around a New Years Day (2017) cat trip. We booked our seats and then secured lodging. The trip was supposed to be on January 1st, which has become sort of a tradition for us. We have previously done a cat... More

Management response:

Not really much we can say to this, there are some valid points although I think the level of understanding of the mountainous terrain we deal with may be a factor here. You are correct there were reasons that we did not take the road into Cypress earlier. Safety of our staff is number 1 at all times so building... More

The people and businesses of Whisler have always provided me with excellent, world class service over the years I've visited and worked there. Unfortunately, one company, Powder Mountain Heli and Cat Skiing, has been an exception to that. Their refusal to honour a valid Gift Certificate was, in my mind, unethical and shows poor respect for their customers. Summary/ TL;DR... More

Unfortunate situation to say the least. Powder Mtn works with local businesses to get their staff out for free and experience our product. The GC is specific to the business and the staff member that wins this GC. It also has an expiry date on it. We no longer offer these free GC to companies as we felt that selling... More
