Offering Heli Hiking Adventures in the heart of the Rocky Mountain range, CMH Heli-Skiing & Summer Adventures is the perfect choice for those wishing to get off the beaten track in to some of the most beautiful scenery the Rockies has to offer.

CMH Heli-Skiing & Summer Adventures specialises in adventure skiing and hiking holidays from their two lodges deep in the Purcell Mountains and Columbia Mountains. Accessible by helicopter only from close to Banff, guests can enjoy skiing and hiking in pristine scenery completely off the beaten track.

Spend 3 days being guided through pristine flower filled valleys, lead to jaw dropping spires, travel across free flowing rivers by zip line or for the thrill seekers, pause before placing your first foot on the first rung of the via ferrata.

After an exhilarating day in the mountains, return to one of the comfortable and welcoming lodges.

Bugaboos Lodge and Cariboos Lodge each offer their own hiking programmes or you can travel between the two on longer trips.

Each of the lodges offers warm and comfortable accommodations with en suite bedrooms, comfortable guest lounges with fireplace, full service bars and the all important sauna, whirlpool and massage services, much needed after a fun and challenging day out on the mountains.

Meals are offered family style and chefs rustle up sumptuous and delicious favourites, the pastry goodies go down particularly well.

The various trips are detailed on the Experiences section and can be added to any longer itinerary or on their own. They have private adventures and family adventures as well as their classic heli hiking trips.

The rooftop hot tub at Bugaboos Lodge is a particular favourite, a great place to gaze at the night sky and enjoy the sounds of silence. There is WiFi connectivity throughout both lodges.
