Pack your Chanel skis and get ready to for the adventure of a lifetime.

by Jenna Marie Bostock

Soon we shall roar into March as angry lions and exit as meek little lambs…so for a last minute mountain adventure, book a weekend getaway and go jump off a mountain. Seriously.

Most people think of heli-skiing as an extreme sport reserved for the truly crazy guys who enjoy alpine soloing and base jumping in their down time.

But while hurling yourself off a helicopter onto an almost vertical slope is an adrenaline rush, it’s actually not as crazy as you’d think. You don’t need to be Lindsey Vonn to swoosh through the most intense experience of your life. (You do need to be able to ski or board prior to jumping out of the helicopter, though. That’s just common sense).

The super dry powder, wide-open glacial bowls and tree-lined pitches make British Columbia a dream location for the ultimate ski and board experience.

This time of year is a best kept secret amongst experienced heli-skiers. In the springtime, longer days and blue bird skies allow you to spend more time admiring your surroundings.

A last minute getaway at Mica Heliskiing & Island Lake Catskiing in British Columbia gets you 20% off packages for March, making this spring fling a love affair with alpine snow you’ll never forget.

For those who just want a taste of the thrill, Eagle Pass Heliskiing in the Monashee Mountains of BC lets you Heli-Ski for one day at only $975—that includes 4,000 meters of vertical virgin powder.

And since this is a seriously high price luxury adventure (it’s $39,590 for a three day private package at Mica, while a full week of private expeditions at Eagle Pass can run up to $119,785), make sure you ski in style. Pack a pair of Chanel Skis.

Lightweight, sleek and exclusively found at select boutiques, they retail for $4,055.
