Rocky Mountain Sherpas Visit Mica Heli

Rocky Mountain Sherpas are an award winning ski film production company. Their last film, “The Fine Line,” took top honors at several major ski film festivals when it debuted in 2009. The company is now working on its part ski film, part environmental film “All.I.Can.” The two year project has seen the crew visit many extreme and remote locals. While that is a pretty standard description of most any ski film, the Rocky Mountain Sherpas have taken it to a new level. Luxury mountain resorts

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.

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.

Revelstoke Museum Receives Fundung For Tour

The Revelstoke Heritage Railway Society received CAN $26,000 from the Canadian government to take its Chinese Legacies exhibition on tour throughout Canada. The exhibit covers the experiences of the more than 15,000 Chinese workers who worked on building the Canadian Pacific Railway. The tour will stop at the Exporail in Quebec, the Port Moody Station Museum, the Prince George Railway and Forestry Museum in British Columbia and the Copperbelt Mining and Railway Museum in Whitehorse.
