Not a Heli-Skier?
Gothics caters to a wide audience including first-time Heli-Skiers, and those who don’t ski at all. Your non-skiing partner or friend can strap on some snowshoes, unwind with a massage, shoot a round of pool or tinker away on the piano while you tear down the slopes.
Ready to Book at Gothics 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.
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.
Ski Fusion: Heli-Skiing & Heli-Assisted Ski Touring
Why compromise when you can do it all? Spend a full 3.5 days Heli-Skiing and 3 days heli-assisted ski touring with a fusion trip. Soar to spectacular heights and tackle challenging ascents that’ll burn off your daily gourmet meals.
Pair relaxing nights in some of the world’s most luxurious lodges with days full of untamed trees, gentle bowls and anything else you want your private guides and helicopter to take you to.
