Bugaboos Heli Skiing
Heli Ski British Columbia

Summary

The Bugaboo Mountains are the birth place of Heli Skiing as Canadian Mountain Holiday first began operation here in 1965. One of the most established areas in BC, offering an immense variety of runs, both above and below tree line. Skiing on glaciers surrounded by massive monoliths is an indelibly intense and heart-spinning experience. As one Heli Skier wrote, "Having this terrain all to ourselves is like having a private Zermatt or Chamonix."
