October 06 2011

Selkirk Tangiers Heli Skiing is excited to enter into its 35th season, skiing and boarding in the Selkirk and Monashee mountains in half-a-million acres of exclusive terrain!  With record snowfall in Revelstoke last winter and the promise of La Nina’s return, the Selkirk Tangiers team anxiously awaits season start on December 8, 2011.  Selkirk Tangiers launches into its 35th season with an intensive glading project, exciting new products, return of a new loyalty program, and a massive giveaway contest (details coming soon)! 

Enhancements in 500,000 acres of incredible, exclusive terrain!

Preparation for the season began this summer with three weeks of glading focused on opening new terrain and enhancing existing runs such as the already spectacular, Goldmine and Paradisio, which doubled in vertical from 600 to 1200 metres due to glading.  In addition, new landing and pick up zones were developed throughout the tenure.
