When we see a photo like this is really gets our hearts pumping. It isn't even of skiing, or a rad line or even a helicopter. Like you, we wait painfully for Fall to hurry by. We look up on those cooling nights hoping for flakes to fall. Well they have started and will some gusto too. Just take a look at this picture of the sign at Mike Wiegele's Heliskiing in Blue River. I mean, it is a sign for crying out loud....and we are stoked!

CMH Heli-Skiing and K2 Skis have teamed up to give one lucky winner a Pinnacle heli-ski experience in the snow-drenched powder playground of British Columbia’s Selkirk and Monashee ranges. The Pinnacle experience includes up to four days heli-skiing at CMH K2, accommodation including all meals at the CMH K2 Rotor Lodge, and a brand new pair of K2 Pinnacle skis and boots from K2 Skis. Deadline to enter is November 30, 2015.
Here is a little teaser of what spring skiing is like up at Great Canadian Heliskiing. The views are eye popping, the terrain is mind blowing and the vertical looks leg burning! I really like how this video captures just how majestic high alpine skiing can be. It is both thrilling and relaxing. A paradox I know, but a paradox we thirst for all summer long.
Dreaming of sweet, soft BC powder? How 'bout a heli ride after each run? Or what about a world-class lodge? Gourmet cuisine....frosty beer...wine...massage....views...no lines...did we mention powder and a helicopter?
In 1965 Hans Gmoser started it all here in BC with CMH. Now with 3 million acres in 11 unique locations, there is an adventure waiting for you. So stop dreaming and start skiing.
One of Crescent Spur Heliskiing's long-time guests Frank Matson also happens to be the owners of a production company called Citizen Pictures. They are not only enthusiastic powder skiers, they also produce Emmy Award Winning stuff! They, along with their guide Florian, shot and edited this video from footage they captured on a recent trip. Check it out and try not to drool on you keyboard.
This video could be a sign of things to come in sport filming. This edit was shot completely using a drone. Nothing new we know, but this drone was flown without a pilot. That's right, autonomous drone technology has trickled its way into sports photography. Is this a sign of SkyNet and the robot apocalypse? Perhaps. Until then, enjoy this cool filming experience by Xavier De Le Rue at CMH Galena.
(NOTE: we know the video says Alaska, it is CMH Galena...trust us)
RK Heliskiing has done something really cool. They have built an cie rink on an alpine lake at 8300ft! You can sign up for what will be an incredible experience with RK Heliskiing and be part of a mountain high hockey game. If hockey isn't quite your thing, you can book a trip with family and friends to go for an alpine skate, enjoy some lunch and take in all the scenery has to offer.
The price is just $350 per person which isn't too bad considering you get to ride in a helicopter and get some uninterrupted icetime.
Arrive at rk heliski around 9:30am for check in and helicopter safety talk
Fly out around 10am – 3pm. Enjoy 5hrs. approx. of ice time
Packed lunch is provided
Bring your own skates and sticks
Small gym bag is allowed but keep it small. We have weight and space restrictions.
2 Sets of goalie equipment allowed
After the day you can rehash the game over a few drinks at the heliplex. (Please no alcohol in the helicopter.)
$349+ tax per person. Minumums apply.
The Shamrock Lake Rink is created on an Alpine Tarn. Although we try our best to keep the pond surface up to scratch, it may have an uneven surface. It is our commitment to give you the best experience possible. We continually clear the rink as well as flood the ice to create a smoother skating surface.
