Important Information Regarding Radios
New for winter 2011/2012: EVERY skier will have a radio. This will allow them to contact their guide in the event of an emergency or problem. Learn more »
You are welcome to bring a personal radio. However, our operational frequency is restricted to emergency use only. You'll have to make sure an alternate frequency is programmed into your radio if you want to chat with other guests. Please note that CMH is now using narrowband operation AND NEW as of November 2011, we have added two new repeaters to our Monashees operation, and have added tones to ALL CMH frequencies. If you do plan to bring your own radio, please ensure you program your radio before arriving at the Lodge. Contact our Banff Operations department firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain the frequency information you will need to pre-program your personal radio.

Important Note Regarding Potential Interference with Safety Equipment & Avalanche Transceiver:
Electronic equipment, transmitters, metals and magnets such as radios, cell phones, cameras, music players, GPS, battery packs of any type, etc., may interfere with the functionality of your avalanche transceiver. Therefore, CMH strongly recommends that you only carry electronics that are essential to your day of Heli-Skiing. We also require that any electronics that you bring skiing, be carried well separated from your avalanche transceiver. Your guide will be able to give you specific instructions on how to carry and use your transceiver in order to best avoid any interference from electronics, transmitters, metals and magnets; if sufficient separation can not be achieved and guaranteed you are advised not to carry specific pieces of equipment while out skiing.
