Summer Fun in Revelstoke B.C.

Tell someone about British Columbia, and odds are that if they've been there, it was for the snow. Come see what all that snow looks like in the summer from the 175 meter lookout tower above the Revelstoke Dam. The dam's reservoir covers more than 11,500 hectares, and is one of two generating dams in the series of four dams that regulate the Columbia River in B.C.

Revelstoke B.C. - Heliskiing Capital of the World

When planning a heliskiing trip, odds are you are going to end up in beautiful British Columbia, Canada. The reason is simple: nothing beats B.C. powder, period. With over 50 different operations providing backcountry tours in the province, the only question is which one to choose. Well, if you have chosen the de facto heliskiing capital of the world, you better choose the best of the best in Revelstoke B.C. Who’s the best, you may ask? The answer to that question has only one answer: Mica Heli Guides.

 

Unlimited Vertical at Mica Heli Guides

Flying On Your Own. Heli Skiing Review by Ski Canada

Mica Heli Guides stands alone in the world of powder for two simple but obvious reasons: its terrain (which is massive and private) and its helicopters (which are small and also private). Ski Canada editor Iain and I made a weekend visit to the only heli-operation in the Canadian Rockies last April to check out the sometimes chest-deep (not so difficult when you're Iain's size, but even I disappeared occasionally) snow that draws skiers from around the world.

As The Crow Flies - A Story of Mica Heli Guides

Now, I'm not one to buy a pig in a poke, but every once in a while you get an offer you can't refuse. How about an all-inclusive heliboarding trip to a little-known place called Mica Heliskiing on the western shore of the Rocky Mountains? Throw in a crew that includes snowboarding legend Jamie Lynn (filming for Oakley's upcoming The Community Project) and you've got yourself a deal. A no-brainer, for sure.

The White Gold Rush

  “There is gold in them thar hills”. I’m not certain where that phrase came from, it’s been a century since Western Canada’s last “great Gold Rush” brought hoards chasing the dream, but it strikes a chord in me every time I hear it. In the last decade another “rush” has surfaced in British Columbia – the rush to open up BC’s backcountry skiing, the rush for “white gold”.

Helicopter Ski Lift Delivers Big High at Mica Heli Guides

In the winter, when the air is cold and the snow is fresh, Jim Smith, managing principal for Kensington Realty Advisors, starts to hear the call of the wild. It makes him pull out the ski equipment, call up old friends, grab his wallet and head to remote mountain peaks in faraway places like Mica Heli Guides. Because for ski bums with money, there’s no better way to satisfy winter’s call than a week of heliskiing, snow’s most exclusive, most expensive sport.
