The Original Heli Ski Lodge

The Bugaboos holds all the history of CMH – it’s where Hans Gmoser, the founder of CMH, began the heli ski operations back in the 60s – and it remains the most established CMH tenure. The lodge was built to optimise the stunning views of the surrounding granite spires and spilling glaciers. The rooftop hot tub has arguably one of the best views on the planet – and relaxing here after a day exploring the mountains is a real highlight of lodge life.
