Social Mountain Biking

Revelstoke, British Columbia is a mountain paradise year round. In the winter, there is skiing and snowboarding, whereas in the summer, there is mountain biking and hiking. While there are plenty of awesome trails and parks to explore on your own over the summer months, one of the best ways to explore is in the company of fellow cyclists. For that purpose, every Thursday night, Revelstoke plays host to Pedal & Pint. This fun-filled evening starts at 6PM at the Community Centre. After two hours of sweet trail riding, the event heads over to the River City Pub for drinks and merriment.

Unlimited Vertical And Terrain

One of the key metrics by which to judge a heliskiing operation is the amount of vertical available to ski on the average day. Any operator will give you a nice number that probably doesn't mean much as your sit at home planning your trip, but if you're going to pay all the money to go heliskiing why be restricted? At Mica Heli Guides you don't have to worry. First off, they offer tours of small groups only. With so few people sharing the helicopter, the only on who will be waiting is the pilot at the bottom of the mountain.

Exploring Revelstoke On Foot

Although Revelstoke, British Columbia is better known for its world-class skiing and snow cat boarding opportunities, there are plenty of ways to experience the mountain heights on foot as well. Hiking and climbing are two very popular activities in Revelstoke during the summer months, as the terrain is quite spectacular. With many of the mountains in the area topping 10,000 feet, you have the opportunity to hike glaciers, visit remote wilderness and climb some seriously steep pitches.

Mica Heli – Head And Rotors Above The Rest

Revelstoke, British Columbia is a world renowned backcountry skiing and snowboarding destination. Until someone comes up with a better way, your best options for hitting the backcountry anywhere involves traveling in a helicopter or a snow cat skiing. In fact, 95% of the world's catskiing and heliskiing happens right here in British Columbia every year. Here in Revelstoke, the best terrain you can find is the tenure of Mica Heli Guides.

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.

While The Bears Are Sleeping

In few months time, the bears will be sleeping. Unless you’re currently studying bears, or have a particular affinity for them, this is probably not a terribly interesting fact. However, if you're an avid skier or snowboarder, it does signify something much more noteworthy: if the bears are sleeping, it means winter has arrived. Of course that means that Revelstoke, British Columbia is covered in beautiful white snow. With the arrival of winter, tours into the vast backcountry of B.C. commence.

Heliskiing and Inclement Weather

Going into the backcountry with the aid of a helicopter is one of the greatest inventions in the history of skiing. It is certainly the premier way to get truly spectacular lines. However, the surest way to have a heliskiing vacation ruined is if the weather turns so bad that the helicopter can’t fly you into the backcountry. This is one of the most important factors to consider when booking your next vacation. Also to avoid that unfortunate problem, be sure to book your adventure with Mica Heli Guides, located in Revelstoke, British Columbia.

Hiking The Highlands Of Revelstoke

Revelstoke, British Columbia is a world-renowned destination for skiing and snowboarding. Though the snow may have retreated to the upper reaches of the Selkirk, Monashee, and the Canadian Rockies, that doesn't mean there’s nothing left to do on these spectacular slopes. Hiking the area around Revelstoke is just as epic as the skiing. Hiking trails abound here, so you can be sure there is something for everyone. There are a multitude of other summer activities as well here in Revelstoke.

Dreaming Of White Champagne Powder

We've now moved on to August, the halfway month between the beginning and end of the ski season. The good news is that there is less time to wait (roughly four months and counting). The bad news is that it is still summer and the only snow visible is away on the tippy tops of the mountains. Other than visiting the Southern Hemisphere, or really high mountains, the only way to find the snow you crave is in your dreams. Canada Heliskiing
