Safety

CMH has more than 100 employed mountain guides with many years of experience, all certified ACMG (Association of Canadian Mountain Guides) and/or IFMGA (International federation of Mountain Guides Association). CMH mountain guides work in teams together with highly experienced helicopter pilots. One or two mountain guides (depending on program) are leading the ski groups.

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 ski groups
  • Continuous exchange of information between CMH heliski 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 Flotation Device, can rent this through CMH. Information will be sent out prior to your departure.
