Canadian Mountain Holidays offers a heli skiing tour program for adventurers who like to work and play hard.

Hans Gmoser, the father of heli skiing, started off without the helicopters. In the first days of Canadian Mountain Holidays, he led small groups of skiers up (yes, up) into the Canadian Rockies for incredible views, silent surroundings, and some seriously elevated heart rates before leading them down slopes of endless powder.  In honor of this pioneer, CMH Heli-Skiing’s ski touring program offers trips for 10 adventurers who begin their day with a helicopter drop-off, but power it from there on out through pure muscle. Afterward, a helicopter will whisk them back to CMH’s Bugaboo Lodge for hot-tubbing, massages, and lots and lots of gourmet food.
