What is

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).

What it’s like to work at Great Canadian Heli-skiing…

Posted by & filed under Lodge Lifestyle.

Have you ever wondered what it’s like work (and live!) at Great Canadian Heli-skiing?

Working in the birthplace of heli-skiing, over the 2 mountain ranges that are the Selkirk and the Purcell, means that we get copious amounts of snow in the most amazing terrain! We can catch a few laps in our breaks and ride straight off our backyard! On lucky days, we take off in the heli and shred in the backcountry!

It’s extremely accessible, just off the Trans Canada Highway between Golden and Revelstoke, but we get to stay at the lodge and share a house with all our fellow powder passionate teammates!

The guides share their knowledge with us and train us on avalanche and backcountry safety. We get the best advice and in depth product knowledge sessions on outdoor gear directly from the companies’ rep!

Oh, and did I talk about the food? Our chef Dan and the whole kitchen team doesn’t only take pride in delivering mouth watering dishes to our guests. They cook food that tastes amazing, out of local ingredients, also for us! We even have wine and beer tastings!

We do work around the clock to deliver the experience of a lifetime, but we’re also having the experience of a lifetime! We can deliver the boutique experience we are known for, because we are living it too!

So make sure you follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest! We’ll be sharing the jaw dropping and awe aspiring GCH experience!
