The View From Above Revelstoke

Revelstoke, British Columbia is a typical Canadian mountain town in many ways. First, it dates back from the creation of the Canadian Pacific Railway. Second, the first people drawn to the town were involved in the mining or timber business, or both. Third, it is a Mecca for B.C. powder seekers. As many skiers and snowboarders have moved from the resorts into the backcountry, they have increasingly used helicopters to get there. In fact, 95% of the world's backcountry Heli Skiing and catskiing takes place right here in beautiful British Columbia. While the helicopters are obviously working full time during the winter, the question remains as to what they do during the summer. The answer to that is giving helicopter skiing tours of the surrounding area. If you want to see the spectacular view from above Revelstoke, it's just a quick helicopter ride away. The helicopters are also great if you want to go hiking or touring in the vast mountain reaches that surround Revelstoke, but don't want to carry all the equipment that is normally necessary for such a trip. The incredible mountains around this area are home to numerous glaciers, as well as pristine mountain lakes and meadows. The reality is that no matter when you visit, Revelstoke will take your breath away. Heliskiing

If you visit during the winter, not only will your breath be taken away, you're pretty much guaranteed to have a contented grin plastered on your face until at least June of the next year. Backcountry skiing will do that to you, and there isn't a better way to access the backcountry here in Revelstoke than to book a tour with Mica Heli Guides . If the spectacular view from above [that only a trip in a helicopter gives you] is what you're looking for, there is no place better to visit luxury mountain resorts than Revelstoke, B.C.
