There are good days and great days. And then there are best days ever. Those are our specialty.

Greg and Maaike Porter bought Great Canadian Heli-Skiing in 2000, attracted to Golden’s small mountain town lifestyle—and the personal feeling of small group heli-skiing.

Before long, Greg and Maaike started to notice something extraordinary. Day after day, they would watch guests return from their adventures, and a pattern quickly emerged. There were lots of intense facial expressions, full body reenactments…and inadequate attempts to describe the experience and its meaning. The fact of the matter is, days up here defy description. Words often don’t quite cut it. Day after day, the best our guests tend to come up with is this: “Best Day Ever!”. Our team heard it used so many times, we eventually realized: that’s exactly what we do. We’re in the business of facilitating people’s best days ever. That’s our purpose, and our passion. What could be better than that?

Every #BestDayEver adventure begins and ends at Heather Mountain Lodge—our laid-back mountain lodge in the middle of nowhere (or close to it, anyway).

It feels homey here because this is our home. It feels like family, because it is. We are a family operation with a passion for sharing our mountain life with you. We feel so fortunate to spend our days exactly where we are, doing what we do, and getting to celebrate your best days ever with you.
