Take a Heli-Skiing Vacation on Mt. Robson

November 8th, 2013 by Corey A. Edwards

Heli-skiing, at Mt. Robson.

Heli-skiing, heli-boarding, heli-hiking, heli-touring – all a heli-good time!

Heli-Skiing. You’ve seen it in movies: some gutsy athlete is dropped from a helicopter onto the snow-covered peak of a mountain and goes roaring down the untouched, vertical face of an alpine snowfield on his skis and what has to be gallons of pure adrenaline.

To most of us, this is a fascinating spectacle but *not* something we think of ourselves doing. It’s hard not to be a little jealous of all that untouched snow up there, though – all those pristine, long slopes and empty glades piled high in dry powder … well, stop being jealous. You CAN do this!

If you’re in reasonable shape and can handle the blue and black diamond runs at the resorts, then you’re ready! You don’t necessarily even need your own equipment to handle the fabulously deep, virgin powder. Most heli-ski operators will have skis or snowboards for rent but, by all means, if you’ve some nice, fat powder skis or a board, bring it! Before you know it, you’ll be flying down some of the most epic verticals you’ve ever dreamed of.

But wait, let’s say whipping down intense verticals is not your idea of a good time but the thought of being on top of the world on an alpine glacier still sounds like heaven. Well, fear not: heli-hiking is also available. Strap on those snowshoes and traipse around the beauty that is Mt. Robson with your family and an experienced guide. Oh, did I mention the included lunch? Yum!

Okay maybe playing in the snow isn’t for you – but you have to admit the pictures look fabulous. Well, how about a heli-tour? You’ve NEVER seen the mountains like this and, believe me, folks: pictures simply cannot do it justice. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to view the top of the world from *above.*

And now for the good news: there’s a heli-skiing operator right near Mountain River Lodge that can set you up for heli-skiing, heli-snowboarding, heli-hiking, or going on a breathtaking heli-tour: Robson Helimagic.

Make your vacation to Mt. Robson one you’ll never forget with lodging at Mountain River Lodge and a day of heli-skiing: you’re bound to have a heli-great time!
