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.

ATVing in Revelstoke

Revelstoke, British Columbia is an outdoor paradise. In the summer there is plenty of hiking, biking, and fishing, and in the winter there is, of course, epic skiing and snowboarding. While these seemingly unending summer months usually attract mountain bikers to the slopes, another great way to enjoy the wilderness is venturing out on an ATV. There are literarily hundreds of miles of trails to explore in the area. Ride through valleys, along creeks and travel up into the mountain heights.

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

Rogers Pass Memory Garden Nearing Completion

Revelstoke, British Columbia is around today in large part thanks to Major A.B. Rogers. He found the route through the Selkirk Mountains in 1881, which eventually allowed the railway to reach the Pacific. To honor the history of the Pass, three steel reliefs are being constructed. One commemorates the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway, the other the construction of the Trans-Canada Highway, and the last one commemorates the tragic avalanche in 1910 that killed 58 people. The memorial will be unveiled officially for the first time on August 15th.

The Beauty Of A First Descent

Ask anyone where to go for great skiing or snowboarding, and you're more than likely to hear how spectacular the Canadian Rockies are. Then you might point out that the Rockies, even the Canadian Rockies are quite long. Therefore, to be more exact, we're talking about the magnificent Canadian Rockies that surround Revelstoke B.C. The mountains here are truly one of a kind, not to mention the special mix of weather and terrain in B.C. that creates gorgeously soft and dry powder, which has become the hallmark of the best backcountry skiing in the world.

Touring Revelstoke's Spectacular Mountains

To the avid skier or snowboarder sitting at home, counting the days until the snow falls, summer may seem unbearable. While mountain biking and hiking provide unique benefits of their own, nothing quite compares to the views you can get of Revelstoke and the surrounding mountains with an aerial tour of the area by helicopter. Not only can you experience the immenseness and serenity of the Selkirk and Monashee Mountain Ranges from a bird’s eye view, it is also a great way to see what the terrain is like before it's covered in a white blanket for the winter.
