Our backyard is out of this world

More than 3 million acres of paradise in Western Canada’s Columbia Mountains. That’s roughly one-third the size of Switzerland. It’s also CMH’s operational area – a vast ocean of untamed wilderness that plays host to near-endless adventures just west of the Canadian Rockies.

CMH Summer gives you rare heli-access to three distinct mountain areas: Cariboos, Bugaboos and Bobbie Burns. Each area features uniquely captivating geography crowned by a remote lodge offering the height of timberline comfort and hospitality. Choose your summer getaway at any of these exceptional destinations or double the adventure with a Bugaboos to Bobbie Burns lodge-to-lodge experience.
