Last year we held a fantastic competition with Ellis Brigham, K2, Arc’teryx and B.C. Tourism for two lucky people to win 3 days of heli skiing in Canada with CMH Heli Skiing and £2,000 worth of gear from Arc’teryx and K2 Skis! Our winners, Jonathan and Gudrun, heli skied this April and had “a truly memorable experience” – here is a bit about their trip in their own words…
Jonathan and Gudrun flew out to Canada and stopped off first in Banff to see and ski the resort and mountain, before continuing on to the famous CMH Cariboos Lodge for their heli skiing.
‘Your suggested itinerary worked really well and made for a very memorable experience. We enjoyed the stop off in Banff including a warm up day at Sunshine Village and then followed the bus up in the 4×4 which was ideal for the conditions. The drive, as you will appreciate, was gasp-worthy – especially through the glacier/ice fields which was amazing. It has to be one of the worlds’ most spectacular drives!
The hospitality we received at the lodge was exemplary and we enjoyed two days of helicopter skiing – we were fogged down early on the third day unfortuantely but no matter as we had by that stage logged nearly 13,000 metres of skiing over the first couple of days!!’
They stayed in Jasper for their last night, before one more morning of resort skiing in Lake Louise.
‘We got up at 5.30 the next morning to squeeze a morning session in at Lake Louise to enjoy the near-deserted long runs, before heading back to the airport only to sleep the whole way completely exhausted!
We would like to thank you and all involved for a truly memorable experience and one we shall look back upon for many years to come until we do a full trip with your company next time!’
Thank you to Ellis Brigham, B.C. Tourism, K2 and Arc’teryx for your support, and congratulations to our winners! Fancy some heli skiing in Canada yourself? Get in touch with the heli skiing experts at Pure Powder.
