How backcountry travellers can reduce chances of conflict with heli-skiers:
Whistler Heli-skiing has assured us that they try to avoid backcountry skiers. You can phone them (1-888-435-4754) or email them to let them know your trip plans in advance. They have indicated that if they do see backcountry skiers in an area, they will try to avoid them.
To enable us to monitor the situation, if you have success or failure with this procedure, please email us at the FMCBC with the details.
