Safety

CMH has more than 100 employed guides with an average of 14 years of experience. All guides with ACMG or equivalent international standards of education. CMH’s mountain guides work in teams with highly experienced helicopter pilots. Each ski group is provided with one guide.

CMH has developed a comprehensive security system for skiing in the wilderness, which includes:

  • Routines for collecting weather and snow data 
  • Evaluation of snow layers and stability 
  • To assess avalanche hazards in the terrain 
  • To determine an appropriate daily ski program adapted to conditions 
  • Each area has a safety guide that works separately from the skiing groups 
  • Continuous exchange of information between CMH heli-ski areas and the Canadian Avalanche Association 

To further ensure guest safety, CMH provides the following equipment:

  • Avalanche transceiver
  • Radio 
  • Backpack equipped with shovel and probe

Guests that would like to ski with an avalanche backpack, can rent them through CMH, information about this will be sent out prior to your departure.
