Mica Heliskiing is not responsible for any inconvenience or additional expense if you or a member of your group is detained or not permitted entry into Canada. Our cancellation policy will be applied in this circumstance.
Guests of Mica Heliskiing are encouraged to arrive/depart through the Kelowna International Airport (YLW) located 2.5 hours South West of Revelstoke. It is the closest international airport servicing four major airlines (United, WestJet, Air Canada and Horizon Air) from LA, Vancouver, Calgary and Seattle. (MapQuest Map to Mica Heli Guides)
All our heli ski packages include return ground transportation from Kelowna to Revelstoke and on to our staging area. To avoid possible delays and late arrivals, we recommend you plan to arrive into Kelowna or Revelstoke the night prior to your transfer to Mica Lodge. Also, by accepting transportation to Mica's Offices in Revelstoke, British Columbia you will be deemed to have accepted the terms of Mica's standard waiver of liability.
Charter air transfers are available from Vancouver, Calgary, Kelowna and Valemount. If you chose to drive yourself to Revelstoke or are planning alternate arrangements, please contact our Reservations Staff for further information and to coordinate your travel.
On the first day of your tour, our 16 person shuttle bus will pick you up in Kelowna, B.C. and bring you to the Mica Heliskiing office in Revelstoke. Transfer times vary throughout the season and are summarized below.
During a brief welcome at the Mica office, guests will be required to sign our Waiver of Liability. Shortly thereafter, we will depart as a group to the staging area for Mica Heliskiing, approximately 2 hours north of Revelstoke.

Mica guests are transferred by helicopter into the lodge; therefore how you pack is very important. Most of the compartments in the helicopter are rounded and quite small and not conducive to transporting large and/or rigid baggage. Softer duffel-type bags are preferred to maximize the available space.
We offer the following guidelines to help you with your planning:
- Please AVOID any baggage with wheels or rigid frame.
- Please pack using soft-duffle type bags. Generally one large duffle or two small is sufficient. Each bag should not exceed 100 litres (30x24x16 inches).
- Please carry boots separately (boot bags are acceptable).
- If you are bringing a ski/board bag, please limit the contents to just skis and boards. There is limited room in the ski basket for gear and a fully packed ski/board bag will NOT fit in the basket. A reminder that you are welcome and encouraged to use our powder skis.
- A surcharge may be applied for oversized or excess baggage that results in extra flight time
Mica Heliskiing reserves the right to request you repack your baggage. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact our office. Of course, if you are traveling for an extended period beyond your heli-ski trip, you are welcome to leave excess baggage at our office or the hangar while you are up at the lodge.
Mica Heliskiing guests receive preferred rates at several hotels in Kelowna, Calgary and Revelstoke. Guests are encouraged to make their own hotel reservations and when booking, should advise the hotels they are a guest of Mica Heliskiing to receive the preferred rate. Please confirm your arrangements with Mica’s reservation staff.
