In early September 2008, adventure travel company, Canadian Mountain Holiday launched the first-ever Gay Heli-Ski Week. The first-ever Gay Heli-Ski Week will take place in the spring of April 11-18, 2009 in the remote Selkirks range of the Canadian Rockies in British Columbia, on Canada’s west coast.
Heli Skiing & Heli Hiking with Canadian Mountain Holidays
Canadian Mountain Holidays was the first company to introduce Heli-Skiing to the world and it began over half a century ago in 1965. Not only does CMH offer Heli-Skiing, but they also offer Heli Hiking in Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper during the summer. They’re also noted for offering one of the Most Expensive Ski Packages in the world.
So what’s so great about Heli-Skiing? Heli-skiing offers off-trail downhill skiing accessible only by helicopter, rather than typical ski resort lifts. Skiers are dropped from a to various alpine locations and terrain – giving skiers a different and more adventurous experience of skiing inaccessible otherwise.
