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 some of the most spectacular found in the Columbia Mountains; characterized by magnificent granite spires, the terrain offers everything from moderate to advanced skiing in both high alpine and trees. Bugaboos is known as an area for skiers who prefer a more relaxed pace.
3-4 groups of 11 skiers share a Bell 212 helicopter. Bugaboos lodge remains 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.
