The Bobbie Burns offers some of the finest Heli-Skiing anywhere, with access to both the Purcell and Selkirk Mountains. The area hosts a rich selection of runs, both in the trees and in high, glaciated terrain. Skiing here is fast and challenging.
33 guests are divided into a maximum of 3 groups of 11 skiers each, this allows the group to fly further afield for more time on the slopes. The area's valleys enfold several micro-climates, allowing us to find good skiing in virtually all conditions.
Skier Level: Physically fit, well-experienced skiers/boarders who enjoy a fast pace
There are some ski areas, whether heli-skiing or lift service, that are famous for their reputation, some that are famous for the lodging, some that are famous for the scenery, and there are some that are quite simply about the skiing. The Bobbie Burns is one of the latter. The area takes its name from a mining claim in the area named after the famous Scottish poet Robert Burns.
