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!

Helicopter Skiing, Hiking & Boarding Tours

November 18th, 2012 by Katie Pate

In the winter months, Mt. Robson can seem an intimidating force to some folks. But certainly not the fellas from Robson HeliMagic, an outfitting company that specializes in helicopter-lifted ski and hiking adventures.

Robson HeliMagic offers skiing, snowboarding, snowshoe tours, sightseeing tours and hiking tours throughout Mount Robson Provincial Park. The catch, of course, is that all these tours begin at the helicopter pad in Valemount. If you’re willing to shell out the extra cash and aren’t afraid of heights, taking a helicopter to the top of the mountain is an extraordinary experience. Plus, it’s a whole lot easier than walking all the way to the top!

Catch fresh snow with a helicopter tour up Mt. Robson!

Established in 1991, Robson Helimagic offers amazing vistas for hikers, campers, mountain climbers, and non-able bodied individuals. They have an arrangement with Mount Robson Provincial Park that allows them to fly into Robson Pass on Mondays and Fridays.

Robson HeliMagic’s terrain is the south side of Mt. Robson, the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies. With access to 1,500 square kilometers of the finest high country skiing, you don’t have to be an extreme skier to have the time of your life. If you are a strong intermediate skier you can heliski.

Looking for something a little less extreme? Try snowshoeing with an experienced guide. If the silence, beauty and peace of winter is calling you, this is the escape you need.

Don’t wanna get that wet and wild? Enjoy a flight over Emperor Falls and Robson Glacier before landing on the shore of Berg Lake. The frozen lake allows access to view Berg Glacier up close.

Whatever your snow day activity might be, we hope you will consider our Mount Robson Inn for your accommodations. We have a self-contained cabin as well as a lodge with a bed and breakfast style full meal served every morning. Hope to see you at the dining table soon!
