Heli-fondue at the height of BC’ Canada’s Panorama. —Lori Knowles
If a full menu of heli-skiing isn’t your thing, how about a tasting menu of heli-fondue? On select winter evenings, Canada’s RK Heliski hosts après-ski fondue festivities at the top of Panorama Mountain Village, BC. A Bell helicopter retrieves guests from the RK Heli Plex—an iconic structure of wood, glass, and stone at Panorama’s village base—and sweeps them to the ski area’s summit at 7,000 feet. En plein air, waiters stir steaming pots of cheese and chocolate fondue as guests sip Okanagan wine and drink in a panoramic view. Afterward skiers ride beneath the stars toPanorama’s base, or descend in style aboard the luxury eight-passenger chopper. Either way guests are sure to be sated, not to mention under the influence of a sweet alpen glow.
