The Rockies are absolutely breathtaking. Banff and Canmore are must see go to places to take in the beauty.

“CMH does an outstanding job in ensuring you have a great heli-ski vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2015

This rating is based on my experience in Feb 2015 at the Gothics Lodge (2 hours from Revelstoke) and April 2011 at the Adamants Lodge (near Gothics).

I am so impressed with the operation of CMH. Everyone on the staff from reservations to at the lodge are so committed to making your trip great and memorable. The food was top notch and everyone on the staff went above and beyond to address any needs we had. They even fixed a problem with my snowboard boot right on the spot (no charge).

2015 was a low snow year and we were concerned about having a good experience. I had no idea how much terrain they had to choose from with untouched snow. All 4 days of our trip were great. We typically did over 10 heli runs per day. We had a few runs on some day where we encountered some so-so snow but overall we were amazed to be enjoying fresh tracks. I was also impressed with the guides. They adapted to the groups needs well, were personable, and most important kept us safe.

I wanted to be sure to write this review because they deserve recognition for a job well done.

“Helihiking 6/5 Stars”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2014

Heli-hiking trips done by CMH is absolutely the best vacation ever. I have travelled extensively and the week spent helhiking at Bobbie Burns lodge and Bugaboos lodge is by far my favourite. The views are world class, the lodges are excellent, and the staff are professional and focused not just on an enjoyable experience but a safe one. Insanely expensive but worth every cent.

“Spectacular heli-hiking experience! Should be on everyone's Bucket List.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2014

We did a short hiking escape at the Bobbie Burns lodge in September. CMH is a first rate company. The guides were outstanding. The guides were extremely professional, helpful and managed to personalize the hikes to everyone's ability. The Bobbie Burns lodge was very comfortable with good mattresses. The food was very good and special requests were gladly accommodated. The helicopter driver were amazing. The small lodge environment and family style dining with staff and other guests encourages guests to mingle and makes the experience even better. I cannot say enough good things about the CMH operation and all of the staff.

The actual hiking was amazing. The scenery was spectacular - some of the best in the world. Heli-hiking allows you to get to some very remote places without being a mountain climber. And, the Bobbie Burns lodge provided a very comfortable/rustic luxury environment to stay in.

I feel so lucky that we had this experience. It is definitely not to be missed! I hope to do this again. It was a spectacular experience.
