Ever wanted to carve fresh tracks through the snow with a living skiing legend? And only on untouched slopes!
We make it possible with the likeable French Swiss Didier Cuche and take you away to the Bobbie Burns Lodge for a week of heliskiing, located in the heart of Canada’s wonderful nature. The “former” professional skier will look after you on the slopes and share valuable skiing tips with you. Pit yourself against a world champion on the slopes!
“For over 20 years I skied predetermined routes on prepared pistes. Now I’m glad to be able to share this deep-snow experience with you and carve my own slalom tracks between the trees.” - Didier Cuche
After an overnight stay at Calgary airport, you will be picked up from CMH early in the morning and driven for about four hours to the helipad at Parson. You will fly by helicopter to the Bobbie Burns Lodge, where preparations for your skiing adventure begin. After a short introduction to heliskiing, we get under way and the first group takes off.
Over the next seven days, you will enjoy the best downhills that the Selkirk and Purcell mountains have to offer. The varied terrain with more than 300 runs offers practically everything a skier's and snowboarder's heart desires, from glacier descents to challenging tree-skiing. Some of the descents end right outside the lodge.
You will travel back to Switzerland via Calgary and Frankfurt.
To prevent you from freezing when the temperature plummets, our partner KJUS gifts a brand new neck warmer to all participants. Stay warm!

Then, after a short introduction to heliskiing, we get under way and the first group takes off.
Those who love speed and variety will be huge fans of the Bobbie Burns. This is heliskiing for the proficient and experienced through woods and glacier regions. Each morning the helicopter transports you to one of the 300 untouched runs, some of which end right outside the front door of your hotel. The particular climate of the Bobbie Burns makes it possible to fly in almost any weather conditions. Endless downhill fun and no waiting times – just 3 groups of 11 people.
