CMH Heli-Skiing

Helicopter skiing was started in 1965 by Hans Gmoser, the founder of CMH

A skier's dream is pristine ski terrain with fresh powder snow and no lift queues. CMH has made this dream come true. Ski guests from all over the world return to CMH for the world's best skiing with well-trained and experienced mountain guides, skilled helicopter pilots and personal service. This together with cozy CMH lodges out in the wilderness, where our guests live in a relaxed environment.

Heliskiing from 12 lodges in the Columbia Mountains

We offer heli skiing from our amazing lodges: Adamants, Big Horn, Bobbie Burns, Bugaboos, Cariboos, Galena, Gothics, Kootenay, Monashees, Nomads, Revelstoke and Valemount. Our wilderness areas in the Columbia Mountains of British Columbia cover an area equivalent to a third of Switzerland.

Skiing adventure in alpine wilderness

After a day of skiing out in beautiful alpine scenery, our guests relax in comfortable lodges with hot tubs, saunas, après-ski snacks and dinner prepared by world-class chefs. Enjoy a glass of good wine in the bar and socialize with ski guests from all over the world. To create a family atmosphere, max. 48 guests in a lodge for a week.

CMH & Alpine Helicopters

CMH uses twin-jet Bell 212 helicopters with seating for 11 ski guests in all our areas. Bell 407 is used in the areas where we have programs for smaller groups of 4-5 ski guests and for private groups of 4-10 ski guests. The Bell L3 is used as a service helicopter in all areas, for lunch transports out in the terrain to our ski guests, for flights with our safety guides and for special transports.

Our pilots are trained to fly in mountainous terrain. Our guests undergo a thorough safety instruction before starting to fly the helicopter.
All helicopters have their own mechanic stationed at all lodges. Our helicopters are equipped with radios for communication between pilots, our mountain guides, base station in our lodges, all CMH areas and external resources. Alpine's helicopter base is located in Kelowna, where the helicopters regularly undergo complete maintenance programs.

We will be happy to send you our heliskiing guide and tell you more about heliskiing in Canada.
