“Best hiking experience ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

My family and I have done the Canadian Mountain holiday heli hiking experience for the second time in five years and every time it gets better. The lodge is roomy, comfortable and has all the amenities of a high class resort. Sauna, jacuzzi, massages to name a few. But the real reason is the hiking in the mountains of Canada. Every day the helicopter takes you to pristine meadows bursting with wild flowers, emerald glacial lakes, streams with moss covered sides, views of glaciers everywhere. You can even climb mountains on the Via Farrata trip which is the most exile rating experience of my life. The guides know all about the history, flora and fauna. This outfit aims to please. The food is plentiful and delicious. There is so much more to write but it would be a book.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Even at the end of the season the skiing was amazing and the guides always managed to find the magic pitches, I couldn't have asked for a better ski experience

“Overpriced”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

The food is amazing. Stayed at the Bugaboo lodge and what a joke. Half the crowd will go to sit in a chair. The lodge manager was a pompous jerk (Dave), surprised his body supports his ego. All of the hikes and the terrain from the bugaboos lodge can be accessed via hiking from the logging road. I was almost embarrased to have to use the helicopter to get to these sites when an additional walk could access them without the cost of the polution.
Save your money.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

We stayed at the bugaboo lodge on our honeymoon in August 2002 and it was amazing. We had a fantastic time at the heli hikking experience. The room, the food and the guides were perfect and we hope to comeback soon. The canadian mountain holiday provide us with a unforgetable experience! Thanks!

“The Best Skiing in the World”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Just been on our fourth trip Heli skiing with CMH. This really is the best skiing in the world. They have a number of lodges throughout the area and most of them are remote high up in the mountains. Lodges are not really a good description because they are very luxurious. The food is fantastic and the guiding and service is second to none. A lot of care goes into making you feel sate in what is a dangerous sport. As a first timer i would recomend doing a powder Intro Group because skiing powder all day is never experienced in a resort. As long as you are a high end intermediate you will be able to cope and the instruction certainly helps. Expensive but definitely the best.
