I had a friend use that outfit when he was on a company paid trip to Whistler. He liked them well enough. There is definitely great terrain that can be accessed from that location. From what I remember is that it was mostly alpine in Nature. That means they will only fly if conditions are favorable. Poor visibility/high winds = no fly and would be no fun to ride in anyway. Outfitters with below treeline terrain can fly or operate on more days because the tree'd terrain allows you to see variations in the terrain in poor conditions. If you have to go heli, I believe Micah powder guides flies in most conditions due to the huge amount of terrain they have access to that is below tree line. Most cat operations have below tree line terrain they access.
