For many skiers, heliskiing is the absolute ultimate experience. I have to agree that being flown to the highest peaks of a mountain so you can carve up relentless virgin slopes of pure, immaculate snow while someone captures every moment on film is an amazing experience you will never forget!
Cat-skiing is accessible both in terms of budget— since prices for a day or two of cat-skiing are significantly lower than they are for heliskiing—but also in terms of the vehicle used to get skiers to the top! Those who don’t particularly like flying are generally more comfortable being in a vehicle that stays on the ground! Boarding and disembarking is also a little less rushed when it comes to cat-skiing.
