Elan Skis Announces Partnership with White Wilderness Heli-Skiing

Publish date:

Begunje, Slovenia (Oct. 4, 2017) –Elan Skis, a legacy supplier of skis handcrafted in the Alps for over 70 years teams up with White Wilderness Heli-Skiing, a world-class heli-ski operation based in North-central British Columbia.


Effective this season, Elan Skis will provide White Wilderness with a full inventory of the brand’s award-winning freeride Ripstick collection for guests of all abilities to enjoy across White Wilderness’ diverse terrain. The brand and heli-ski operation alliance also includes a product development partnership where Elan will utilize the terrain, guides and crew at White Wilderness Heli-Skiing to test new ski technology and future generations of the Ripstick collection in the skis’ intended elements.

“Teaming up with Elan elevates the overall White Wilderness experience,” says White Wilderness Heli-Skiing Co-Owner, Martin Jaeger. “Not only are we now equipped with today’s best freeride skis on the market, but we are teamed up with a brand focused on the true spirit skiing.”

White Wilderness was founded by two Swiss skiers committed to combining Swiss attention to detail, precision and efficiency with Canadian hospitality and untouched wilderness. Specializing in refined lodging, exquisite meals and a pristine tenure with untouched powder, White Wilderness Heli-Skiing offers an unparalleled experience on and off the mountain.

“Out of all the heli-ski operations in North America, White Wilderness is the best match for Elan on countless levels,” says Elan’s Managing Director, Jeff Mechura. “From the terrain to the personality and ambiance to the European roots, our brand and skis couldn’t be more aligned with what they offer.”

Additionally, Elan will be giving away two free trips for two in the 2017/18 season. Stay tuned to Elan Skis (@elanskis) and White Wilderness Heli-Skiing (@wwheliski) social media channels for more information.
