If there’s a Waldorf Astoria of heli-skiing, CMH is it

Boasting a 50-plus-year tradition of being the best in the business, CMH’s founder, Hans Gmoser, is credited with inventing heli skiing and helping foster modern safety protocol and guidelines via the Association of Canadian Mountain Guides. So you know you’re in good hands.

In addition, CMH provides guests with ski access to a staggering 3.1 million acres across its 11 unique ski areas and lodges. In 1953, Hans surveyed the Columbia Mountains, including its sub-ranges, Selkirk, Monahee, Purcells and Cariboo, and claimed the best ski regions at a time when nobody else was interested in securing recreational alpine tenure in British Columbia. This is why CMH boasts some of the best terrain and snow conditions, as well as convenient access to an international airport.

Lodge Life

CMH’s 11 renowned backcountry lodges were built with laid-back mountain luxury in mind and provide the perfect setting after a day of heli skiing. The fire is always roaring, the bar is always perfectly set up for a friendly gathering and the hot tubs and saunas beckon relaxation. The lodge offers a great opportunity to meet and mingle with other heli groups and swap stories of the day’s adventure. When it’s time to refuel, dining at CMH’s lodges is truly an elevated experience. Throughout their trip, skiers enjoy a culinary tour led by high-caliber chefs. Meals range from Japanese buffet to Spanish paella to South Carolina barbeque, and everything is expertly paired with fine wines from the lodge’s well-stocked cellars.

Additional Trip Options

While, CMH’s Signature Trips are the most widely booked experiences, CMH also offers First Timer + Family Trips, Private Trips, Small-Group Trips and Exclusive Trips, which feature private lodges with private chefs or access to a healing hot spring. Those seeking a powder-centric vacation will want to enroll in a Powder University Trip, which features terrain focused on steeps, freeride-style skiing, heli-snowboarding, pillow drops and how to improve your skiing or riding in powder.
