    BC Helidrop suggestions?

    Going to spend some time in Whistler again this year and looking to do something a little different. Looking to charter a helicopter drop. Blackcomb seems to be the company to do that with. Looks like they have a Whistler and Pemberton trip. Whistler I assume is Rainbow and Pemberton Mt Barbour? Any custom routes one might suggest? Wanting to do about a 6 hour ride in the wilds end of July. Ups, downs, possible death are all acceptable. PM me if you would rather not advertise publicly. Thanks in advanced!

    Rainbow is meh. Barbour is fun. If you want to make it 6 hours when you get to Tenquille Lake and the cabin start hike-a-bikeing up to either Copper Mound or Tenquille mtn. Pro Tip -bring some beers and leave them in the lake to stay cool. There aren't trails but there is alpine meadow wandering to be had. You can kill a bunch of time meandering then zip down Tenquille trail back down. Barbour and Tenquille Trail are on Trailforks. Bugs will be horrendous so plan accordingly

    If you can make it to Revelstoke, the Wandering Wheels heli-drop on Mt Cartier is pretty awesome.

    My friend was sharing this a few days ago. He mentioned that you need at least 2 people for the helicopter to take off.

    Haven't tried them, but I'm very interested in doing so.
