Heli-Assisted Ski Touring
Quick access to prime terrain
Enjoy a full day of skinning in the wilderness and “earning your turns” in pristine powder. At the end of the day, you heli back to the lodge for a great dinner and relaxation by the fire.
Hosted at the CMH Adamants, Bugaboo and Cariboo lodges, ski high alpine, wide open glaciers and perfectly spaced tree runs with fully certified mountain guides. In groups of 5-10 ski tourers plus 1-2 guides, these trips allow easy access to epic terrain and expansive wilderness.
CMH lodges are wilderness retreats with ample amenities to reward you after a big day in the mountains. Warm up or cool down on fitness equipment, or relax with a massage, hot tub or sauna. Then join the conversation around the fire, shoot a game of pool or retreat to your guest room with private bath. Whether you are trying ski touring for the first time or are an experienced backcountry tourer, we have trips to suit you.

Our heli-assisted ski touring gives you quick access to prime terrain so you can enjoy a full day of back country ski touring, with the luxury of a helicopter to fly to the top of the first run and pick you up at the bottom of the last, each day.
Get the best of both worlds in a single trip. Ski Fusion gives you four days of heli-skiing in pristine powder and three days of ski touring to see a different side of the breathtaking wilderness terrain.
