Heli skiing is off piste (or backcountry) skiing using helicopters to access incredible un-touched powder snow. Using helicopters rather than traditional ski lifts offers fantastic speed and flexibility and also enables you to ski and snowboard in far reaching areas, away from the crowded pistes!
Contrary to many people’s perception, most heli skiing trips that we organise are not extreme skiing (or the stuff you see in the movies), but regular gradient skiing similar to what you would find on a red run in a resort. The difference being, with heli skiing, you’ll be enjoying run after run of fresh powder snow…
Another misconception many people have is that you have to be an expert skier to enjoy heli skiing. Not true! If you are a strong piste skier and want to ski powder snow then you are ready for heli skiing. If it is your first time, then you may want to consider CMH’s Powder Introduction programme (detailed on the right) which is specifically designed for first-time heli skiers or powder skiers.
CMH Heli Skiing in Canada offer unique heli skiing trips designed specifically for first time heli skiers or first time powder skiers - the Powder Introduction Programme ('Powder 101').
Furthermore, you will be in safe hands; CMH are the original heli ski operator with over 45 years of experience and have the largest, most experienced guiding team in the industry. Contact us for more details.
