Our guided Heli-Hiking will take you to a place to see what few others will. Amble amongst the giants of glaciers and soaring peaks, free from crowds, trails, and limitations.
The holy land for tree skiers
With its remote location, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a rooftop hot tub, you can’t help but lose yourself in Monashees’ panoramic views (and every room has one). A true retreat, our timber-framed lodge is the ideal place to clear your mind and rest your tired legs.
Welcome to some of the most sought-after terrain in the world. In the Monashees, you can look forward to turn after turn through perfectly spaced trees in the world's only inland temperate Rainforest on long, leg-burning runs. This lodge is known for its access to some of the most thrilling runs in the Selkirks.
The challenging Monashees range attracts strong skiers – but your non-skiing friend or spouse will have plenty to do too. Can’t find them after your day in the trees? They’re probably sipping a cold one in the rooftop hot tub, taking in views of the lake.
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.
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.
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.
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.
At Monashees, expect tree skiing in giant old growth trees, and steep, north-facing consistently steep pitched runs that just keep going and going. This tenure is best for skiers who prefer a fast pace.
There are a number of ways you can get to the lodge. If you want to ride in one of the CMH coaches, you can download our arrival/departure travel information PDF; if you’d prefer to drive yourself to the helipad, download our self-driving map. Please note that self-drivers must arrive at the CMH Monashee Lodge by 14:45 MT (13:45 PT). We also have a number of private transportation options if you’re looking for something more specialized. Visit our Transportation page to learn more.
Upon arrival at the lodge, you will have some time to explore and get settled in your room - but not too settled! Now would be a good time to bring your boots to the shop to fit for skis/snowboard so you are ready to go. Dress warmly and meet in the skier entrance where our experienced guides will lead you through a safety and transceiver practice for approximately one hour. Spend the rest of the afternoon relaxing at your leisure. You will hear a bell when dinner is ready at 7:00PM. Enjoy your evening and rest up for your first day of skiing in the morning! There is no skiing/riding on your first day at the Monashees.
