HELI-SKIING

CMH invented Heli-Skiing

Skiers dream about big mountains with fresh powder, no crowded lift lines, just long, free and joyous runs. CMH made this dream come true for skiers from all over the world. Our skiing guests appreciate our high level Heliski program with well-educated and experienced alpine guides, skilled helicopter pilots and the high standard guest service that we offer in our lodges and they keep coming back for more! In addition to our traditional Heli-Ski weeks (7-day trips), we are also offering, throughout the season, several 3-, 4-, and 5-day Heli-skiing trips to some of our ski areas.

CMH offers Heli-Skiing from 11 lodges in British Columbia

We offer heli-skiing from our magnificent lodges: Adamants, Bobbie Burns, Bugaboos, Cariboos, Galena, Gothics, CMH K2, Monashees, Nomads, Revelstoke and Valemount. Our 11 distinct ski areas in the remote mountains of British Columbia cover 15,765 square kilometres, more than a third of the size of Switzerland.

Mountain holidays and adventures for all ages

At day’s end, guests return home to their comfortable mountain lodges for a relaxing jacuzzi, sauna, and a hearty meal prepared by world-class chefs and pastry specialists. The team at CMH is doing their best to create a relaxing family atmosphere and encourages everyone to feel at home in the lodge during their stay.

CMH & Alpine Helicopters

The primary helicopters we use are twin-engine, 11-passenger, jet-powered Bell 212. We use Bell 407 for groups of 5 skiers in our small hcp program and private week for 4 heli-skiers. Bell L3 are used as service helicopter for guest lunches in the mountain, for safety guides and special flights. The total fleet that CMH utilize are 25 helicopters including spare helicopters based in Golden and in the home base Kelowna.

Our pilots are specially trained in mountain environment and areactive participants in our safety network. They give comprehensive safety instructions around the helicopter before our heli-ski guests lift off for their first run.

Ongoing maintenance is provided by a full-time engineer based in each area. All helicopters are equipped with modified skid gear to land on snow, a side basket with a lid to carry skis and snowboards, and radios to ensure continuous communication between pilot, guides, the base lodge, other CMH areas, and outside resources. Alpine helicopters run total maintenance programs on all our helicopters on a regular basis in Kelowna.
