The Original Heli Ski Lodge

The Bugaboos has an immense variety of terrain, with plentiful ski runs both above and below the tree line, making it the ideal choice for first timers as well as experienced heli skiers.  Based in the Purcell Mountains there’s 1,016 sq km of skiable terrain and an average annual snowfall of 12 metres.
