CMH heli-hiking takes place in the Columbias’ most resplendent sub-ranges: the Bugaboos and the Bobbie Burns. Each offers spectacular vistas, access to ancient glaciers, geological features, brilliant alpine lakes, wildlife, bountiful wildflowers: in essence, pristine mountain wilderness. Each area can accommodate hikers of all levels of experience and fitness.
Bobbie Burns Sub-Range Hiking possibilities in the Bobbie Burns, named for the renowned Scottish poet, are nearly endless: deep river basins, meadows of wildflowers, icy crystalline lakes, and ancient glaciers are just some of the inspiring alpine features awaiting exploration.
Bugaboos Sub-Range The Bugaboos are perhaps best known for their defining majestic spires. An historic destination for climbers, the difficult access has prevented recreational hikers from entering this wondrous mountain terrain. As with our other hiking areas, lush meadows, bubbling creeks, awesome glaciers and ridge walks are just the beginning of what awaits our guests.
CMH wilderness lodges combine traditional comfort with modern amenities. Each Heli-Hiking Lodges has a unique and special charm. Each lodge offers airy bedrooms with fully stocked private baths (even hair dryers!).
The common areas feature:
- Comfortable sofas and a fireplace for socialising

Great food is a CMH tradition. Each lodge employs both a highly-trained head chef and a pastry chef, who cook with health, flavour, and presentation in mind, using fresh Western Canadian ingredients. We are also pleased to accommodate special dietary needs.
