Heli-Skiing was invented in 1965 by CMH founder, Hans Gmoser
Skiers dream about big mountains, 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. Guests from all over the world return to CMH for the world’s greatest skiing with well-educated and experienced mountain guides, skilled helicopter pilots and the high standard guest service that we offer in our lodges.
CMH offers Heli-Skiing from 12 lodges in British Columbia
We offer heli-skiing from our magnificent lodges: Adamants, Big Horn, Bobbie Burns, Bugaboos, Cariboos, Galena, Gothics, Kootenay, Monashees, Nomads, Revelstoke and Valemount. Our distinct ski areas in the remote mountains of British Columbia cover a terrain equivalent to the size of a third of Switzerland.
Skiing adventure for all ages in backcountry terrain
At the end of the day, our guests return to the lodge for after-ski snacks, a relaxing hot tub, 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
We use twin-engine, 11-ski-passenger, jet-powered Bell 212. Bell 407 for groups of 4-5 skiers in our small hcp program and private week for 4-10 heli-skiers. Bell L3 are used as service helicopter for guest lunches in the mountain, for safety guides and special flights.
Our pilots are trained to fly in mountain environment. They give comprehensive safety instructions around the helicopter before our guests start skiing.
Ongoing maintenance is provided by an engineer based in each area. All helicopters are equipped with 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 base in Kelowna.
