Follow in the historical footsteps of alpinist Hans Gmoser on an unforgettable powder tour, from the world’s first heli-skiing lodge. Gmoser invented the adventure of heli-skiing here, in the Bugaboos area of the Purcell Mountains. Magically glistening powder snow awaits.
The Bugaboos area is regarded as one of the most beautiful heli-skiing regions in the world. The Bugaboos is a mountain range at the north-western end of the Purcell Mountains in British Columbia, Canada. It is surrounded by the Bugaboo Provincial Park. The area is subject to heavy erosion because of its location in the snowy and rainy Columbia Wet Belt. The Bugaboos were originally covered in loose rock, but erosion and glacial motion ultimately caused the famous mountain peaks to emerge. Giant granite peaks rise towards the sky and the landscape is characterised by gigantic glaciers. In between them are endless descents, both above and below the treeline. The Bugaboos offer every skier and snowboarder the level to match their skills, from pleasure to adrenaline-seeking adventure.
The view from the historic lodge at 1,490 metres of altitude is breathtaking. You will discover a wonderful new spectacle of natural beauty every time you look outside. The accommodation has been modernised several times and the standards adapted, without losing the historical flair. The lodge can accommodate up to 44 guests. Each room is ensuite, with WiFi connectivity. After your meal in the cosy dining room, you can end the day in the legendary bar, where some of the world’s best skiers and snowboarders have raised a glass.
