Mica Heli Guides Wins Ski Canada Award for Heli Assisted Touring

Revelstoke, B.C. Canada  Mica Heli ski guides won the Ski Canada award for “Best Half & Half” for their helicopter assisted touring package.

Assisted Heli Ski touring is a combination of heli ski and ski touring. “For someone who likes to climb but also wants to bang off the turns, Mica Heli Guides is a dream come true! Every morning the chopper provides virtually instant access to magnificent terrain and stunning scenery. Can it get any better than starting your day with a 3500 foot dream descent, then slowing it down by skinning back up, taking another run and then calling in the chopper to do it all again? The Mica experience uniquely combines the rush of powder heli-ski with the serenity and awe of touring”, says Steve Greenburg a return heli ski touring guest at Mica Heli Guides.

Mica Heli Guides introduced a heli-assisted ski touring program in December 2007. Demand grew quickly for what has become the ultimate heli ski touring experience and the program is now a regular part of the exclusive small group programs offered at Mica Heli Guides. “We are excited that Ski Canada has recognized this new and unique program” says Paul Norrie, Mountain Guide and President of Mica Heli Guides. “For just over half the price of heli ski our heli-touring guests have quick and easy access to the best snow cat boarding and world class ski terrain daily, without requiring a long approach or exit at the beginning and end of the day. After touring, with tired and happy legs, the heli takes you back to the luxurious Mica lodge where a hot tub, a massage and a gourmet meal awaits. ”
