Bugaboos

Bugaboos is the Mecca for heli-skiing. It was here that it all started in 1965 by CMH founder, Hans Gmoser.

The nature in Bugaboos is no doubt one of the most spectacular in Columbia Mountains, characterized by magical granite spires. The terrain offers everything from moderate to advanced skiing in both high alpine and trees. Bugaboos is however known as the area for skier who prefer a more relaxed pace.

3-4 groups of 11 skiers share a Bell 212 helicopter. Bugaboos lodge remain with it’s classic alpine character, adapted to modern requirements.

Bugaboos is a fly-in lodge. After bus transfer from Calgary to Bobbie Burns helipad our guests are picked up by helicopter for a short flight to the lodge.
