This is where it all started. CMH Heli-Skiing was born in the Purcells back in 1965 and the Bugaboos remains the most established area. The combination of stark granite towers and drooling glaciers will stir the soul of even the most avid skier. There is an immense variety of terrain both above and below the tree line. No matter what line you take, you’ll be in arguably the most scenic of CMH’s tenures.

While history abounds at Bugaboos, modern comforts are equally plentiful in the newly renovated lodge. It has undoubtedly the finest view from a hot tub anywhere on the planet. At the lodge you are part of the family, it’s warm and cozy and very inviting.  

Please note the transport to Bugaboos departs from Calgary airport on 21st January for a 7 day trip.  For Booking and Information, contact Travelplan Australia, Email: anthea@travelplanski.com, phone 1300 754754.
