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).


2014 Wrap-up

Best Year Ever!

After hearing a blizzard of “Best day ever!” from so many of you all winter long, it’s about time we returned the favour, by telling all of you that joined us how much we enjoyed hosting you for what we thought was the “Best Year Ever”. It was unanimously agreed by guides, pilots and lodge staff, that 2014 was the most fun we have had in 26 years. In addition to setting a high score on the Fun-O-Meter, we hit some big milestones this year including Rick E. heli-skiing his 100+ days of Great Canadian Heli-Skiing. So thank-you, from us to you, for the dinner table toasts and roasts, the lounge libations, and of course all the fun playing in the snow.

Once the last guest was safely on their way home, with enough Great Canadian memories tucked away in their minds (almost 200,000 vertical feet of memories during our last week) to last them a summer long heli-skiing hibernation, we celebrated a great year. After Kids Heli-Skiing Day 2014, cleaning the lodge and closing shop, we took the whole party up to the Kicking Horse Mountain Resort for an amazing day of resort skiing, complete with a rocking après party Heather Mountain Lodge style. Needless to say, we were the place to be on the patio.

After family holidays to Hawaii, Cuba, Mexico, and Yosemite, we are all ready to get back to planning for 2015 to make it better than the “Best Year Ever”. We have champagne sabres to sharpen, snow making machines to maintain, hairy skunk currents to pick and custom 100+ day skis to craft (right Greg & Jan?).

We hope you don’t miss out on another epic year to be.
