CMH Bobbie Burns

Jaw dropping terrain with high alpine and rolling glaciers - Bobbie Burns is the only area where you can ski both the Purcell and Selkirk Mountains. It is more suitable for well experienced skiers who enjoy a faster pace so should not be considered by first time Heli-Skiers.

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 guides to find good skiing in all conditions.

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.

Skier Level: Physically fit, well-experienced skiers/boarders who enjoy a fast pace

milson kicking horse and CMH trip

Written by Guy & Tina a Skier from Australia

Kicking Horse. Arrived in Calgary at 6.25pm to be met promptly by Pure travel rep. David. At that stage we had been travelling for 26 hours and had not eaten that well. When we suggested to him to allow us 3/4 of an hour to allow us to get a meal at the Delta Hotel, he informed us that he, by law, could not drive after 12 midnight and that we would need to leave immediately as he would run out of time. Needless to say, this was rubbish as he was able to get us there by 10.25 pm to find all the food places closed in Kicking Horse. But, after a bad start, it was all great after that. The Moutaineer Lodge was excellent, the Phat Camp skiing program was great value, the food at the Cork restuarant was to die for, no queue lines, great snow and very friendly people. To such an extent that we are thinking of taking our whole family plus friends back there in Jan. 2012. Great advice there Abigail. Then onto CMH with the Ross Grant group at Bobbie Burns. To summarise, fabulous, famous and never to be forgotten. On the last Friday, we skied in Camelot conditions. Even the guides said it does''nt get any better than that. Wonderful snow, bluebird day and skiing in God''s garden.Enough indeed.
