Not a Heli-Skier?
Snow conditions this good are meant to be enjoyed, but your independent non-skiing spouse or friend won’t begrudge you your runs. That’s because they’ll be otherwise occupied – with self-guided snowshoeing, climbing, or a massage.
NEW for 2018: Surrounded by colossal glaciers
Spend your days exploring a place so remote few others have ventured. Experience sun-soaked afternoons hiking among glacier giants, walking endless ridgelines, and playing in the mosaic of colours that paint the valley and meadows in more shades than can be imagined.
GET TO THE GOODS FASTER WITH SPECIAL TRANSPORT
Short on time? Travelling as a group? Maybe you just prefer a more customized way to get to the lodge? We're here to help make your powder dreams come true and can create a custom transportation plan from our Calgary, Kelowna and Kamloops gateway airports.
Ready to Book at Cariboos Lodge?
Experience the classic Heli-Skiing trip CMH was built on. Glide across glaciers and float through remote glades with the company of 10 soon-to-be best friends. When you're ready to hang up your skis, retreat to the spa for a massage, and refuel with a gourmet meal and backcountry cocktail. There's a reason these are our Signature Trips.
Experience powder for your first time with just 10 guests, led by two professional guides. We love to introduce skiing in mountain wilderness to strong intermediate/advanced skiers or boarders. Three million acres is too much to keep all to ourselves.
Powder Intro (Women Only)
Boost your confidence skiing alongside women who go at your pace. Grab some of your friends and let us give you the perfect, sensational introduction to powder. Share a life-altering, unforgettable experience. It’s only for women, and trips fill fast.
The passion for Heli-Skiing never really fades, yet you’re wise enough to know that quality over quantity is what you want. Our Powder Masters program will keep you on the slopes as long as your spirit is willing, under the watchful eyes of two guides.
Whether your kids can out-ski you or want to come in early, they'll have a day they'll never forget. Give them a taste of powder and at the end of the day, if they want to head back to the lodge for fun and games, you can stay out on the slopes.
Plush lodges, a helicopter and a group with one shared goal: fresh, untracked snow. Round up a crew or come solo; either way small group trips maximize your mountain time with like-minded powder hounds.
Classic Heli-Access Hiking
Take a 2- or 3-day trip through breathtaking scenery hardly anyone else has seen. You’ll catch a morning helicopter then spend the day exploring mountain ridges and meadows. As a group we’ll get so far off the beaten path that there aren’t any paths at all – then we’ll head back to civilization (and a very luxe lodge).
