Heather Mountain Lodge and Great Canadian Heli-Skiing offices are located in Golden BC and the Lodge itself is nestled in the mountains, halfway between Golden and Revelstoke, BC, and both owned by a local family. Our culture celebrates our wilderness location and our small neighbouring communities that value a work hard, play hard ethos. We are in the business of delivering “Best Day Evers” to our heli skiing, hiking or wedding guests from around the world. We make it our priority to learn what each guest’s “Best Day Ever” is, and our mission is to deliver it.
The lodge is exceptionally located, easily accessible by car 100 meters from the TransCanada highway, yet built remotely and off the grid with full views of the mountains of Canada’s Glacier National Park. We act as a home for our heli-skiing guests from around the world in the winter (December 1 to April 15), Glacier National Park hiking guests and mountain destination wedding guests in the summer (June 15 to September 30).
The property presently has 22 guest rooms, 2 private cabins, licensed dining for up to 70 and 11 staff rooms, with expansion plans and building underway to service the recent growth the lodge has experienced. Our heli-skiing operations is described as boutique, servicing 24 guests with 2 helicopters in six groups of 4.
Our office is located in Golden BC.
“18 Years ago, tired of being a weekend warrior in the city, we moved to where we were happiest, where the mountains are our backyard, where we liked to play. 18 years ago we moved to Golden British Columbia and bought Heather Mountain Lodge and Great Canadian Heli-Skiing. It was the best decision of our lives”.
-Maaike and Greg Porter, owners of Heather Mountain Lodge and Great Canadian Heli-Skiing.
