Travel 350 kilometres west of Banff and you’ll find Adamant Lodge situated at the confluence of four major alpine valleys. It’s named for the surrounding diamond-hard peaks, a sub-range of the Selkirks, where we do all our Adamants-based Heli-Skiing. Adamant Lodge is located near the head of the Goldstream River in the heart of some of the most rugged mountains in North America.
The Selkirks are famed for long glaciers, deep valleys, and rugged vistas. Classic tree skiing and huge, open glacier terrain await Adamants skiers. The challenging access to these mountains ensures that our abundant terrain remains untouched by all but CMH guides and guests.
When it opened in 1990, it was the most luxurious of the CMH lodges and set the standard for future development, but like the other CMH areas, the lodge is dramatically overshadowed by the surrounding mountains.
When the snow melts off the vertical walls that form a surreal backdrop to the ski season, the summer season in the Adamants demonstrates perfectly why the helicopter is the ideal tool for modern mountain exploration. The cliffs virtually enclose some valleys like the walls of a castle.
Adamants is a fly-in lodge, ie. you get transported first by bus from Calgary to the helipad in Golden, where the helicopter picks you up for a 35min flight to the lodge. Adamants runs the Small Group program throughout the whole season. This program is designed for 6 groups of 5 sharing two Bell 407 helicopters.
