Wonders of Winter Heliskiing

Set along the western slopes of the Canadian Rockies, and surrounded by the Selkirk and Monashee ranges, the tenure of Mica Heli Guides is the idyllic mountain paradise. While most people choose to visit their tenure for the downhill skiing, there is also a ski touring option for those that aren't necessarily looking for a full on adrenaline rush.
 
By touring with the helicopter of Mica, you get to explore parts of the backcountry that would normally require overnight stays in the wilderness and a heavy pack. What used to require several days, now only requires a few minutes. That leaves you time to enjoy what you really came for: the peace and quiet of the mountains. Not only does the ski touring option provide you with a different way to get the most out of the mountain, it also costs less. However, that doesn't mean you are going to miss out on anything. It is merely a reflection of the fact that there is less helicopter time needed to get where you need to go.
 
There are some truly amazing places to explore on Mica's tenure. At over 177,000 acres, there is something for everyone. High alpine glaciers are among a few of the more striking areas to explore, but the beauty of ski touring with Mica is that the trip is completely up to you. You tell the guides what you want to see and do, and they'll make it happen. Generally their tours hit double the downhill than uphill, but it's all up to you and your group. A couple of real heliskiing runs can be added in as well for the complete experience.
 
Whether you come for ski touring or regular downhill powder skiing and snowboarding, Mica has not only the terrain and snow that put it above the rest, but also the service and support to create your picture perfect vacation. If you want the best backcountry experience this year, book soon before their tours fill up. You won’t regret it!
