Great Canadian Heli-skiing Quick Facts
Location: Great Canadian Heli-skiing Heather Mountain Lodge is one of the most accessible heli-skiing lodges in Canada. From Calgary it is a 4 hour drive west on the Trans Canada Highway (also called Powder highway), passing through beautiful Banff, Lake Louise and Golden with plenty of opportunities for pre and post-resort skiing.

Run Length: Most of our runs average in length of 500 vertical meters, and our longest run is 1,900 vertical meters!
Ski Terrain: Amazing and varied terrain, from challenging steeps, open alpine bowls, glaciers to glades. The snow conditions are often the best in the trees as the snow has more protection from the wind and sun than an exposed slope. Expert skiers will LOVE our mushrooms and pillow lines, and snowboarders and aggressive skiers will enjoy our natural half pipes.
Average Daily Vertical: More than 7000 meters.
Number of Runs per Day: The average group skis 8-12 runs a day.
Grouping: Small groups, with only 4 guests per group and per guide. Smallest group format in the industry.
