Vertical?

All heli-skiing operations will guarantee a certain amount of vertical feet/metres. At Great Canadian, we offer a generous amount of vertical (e.g. 30,500m/100,000ft for a week long trip).

NEW SAUNA!!

Posted by & filed under Heliskiing.

At Great Canadian we are blessed with awesome heliskiing conditions, though we are unable to control them. One thing we can control is our standard of service.  Being a successful, family-owned business enables us to provide a very personalised experience that you might not find at a large, corporate organisation. Speaking to our guests, we had many requests for a sauna.

So we have listen and this winter we will have one!! It’s a Barrel Sauna made of Tight Knot Western Red Cedar, similar to the one in the photos. It will be 16 feet long (12 foot sauna, 4 foot changing room) and 8 feet in diameter. It can comfortably accommodate 8 people at any one time. It will be heated by a 10kw Heater with Digital Controls. There will be 2 ‘Port Hole’ windows in the rear of the barrel which might provide light at the start of the season, but will no doubt be covered as the snow starts piling up again this winter!  The sauna will be located just steps away from the lodge, roughly halfway between the lodge and our on-site helipads.
