Banff, Alberta (Vocus) January 14, 2010
Heli-skiing in British Columbia just got more exhilarating, with new Small Group Heli Ski programs opening up at the Monashee, Adamants, and Bobbie Burns locations of CMH Heli-Skiing. CMH has long offered small group options from their Kootenay base, and new for 2010 and 2011 CMH is now offering small group heli-skiing programs from three additional backcountry lodges.
CMH small group heli-ski trips utilize a six-seater Bell 407 Alpine helicopter so three groups of five skiers, along with their respective guides, can each access the epic, deep-powder ski terrain of the Monashee, Selkirk, and Purcell Ranges in British Columbia. Small group heli-skiing equals fast skiing: quick lifts, the opportunity to ski challenging lines, and no fear of competition for those first tracks. Guides can gauge the abilities and desires of each group providing customization of the overall wilderness experience. Small Group Heli Ski trips, also known as Powder Max, feel like a private – without the matching price tag.
Trips include ground transportation from Calgary, Canada; daily heli-skiing with IFMGA or ACMG certified guides; lodge accommodation; gourmet meals, freshly prepared snacks, and non-alcoholic beverages; use of specially designed powder skis and poles; training in and use of avalanche transceivers.
