8 Reasons to go Heli-Hiking at CMH Bugaboos
1. The Bugaboos!
Let’s start with the obvious, the Bugaboo Mountains are absolutely breathtaking! The pond at CMH Bugaboo Lodge is one of the best places to take in the view.
You get to fly around with some of the most experienced pilots in the world over some of the most pristine wilderness in the world. The guides at CMH can take you to places you’ve only ever dreamed of!
3. The Food!
Let me let you into on the best secrets at CMH, their chefs are incredible and you will be fed very well at breakfast, lunch, dinner and all the snacks your heart desired. ‘Heli-Belly’ is a real thing at CMH and you might go home a few pounds heavier even after all that hiking!
4. The Hiking!
With helicopter access you remove most of the tree-filled elevation gain and get right to the good stuff. You can hike alpine ridges, meadows, mountaintops, turquoise lakes and more. The hiking is world class here and the friendly guides maximize your time in these beautiful mountains!
5. The Lodge!
You might be in the wilderness but the CMH Bugaboo Lodge has it all; hot tub, sauna, gym, library, bar, restaurant. What really makes your experience special are the lodge staff, they will look after your every need and really go the extra mile to make you feel at home!
6. The Via Ferrata!
A popular Italian method of solo climbing that CMH have brought to a number of their lodges for the summer months. The Via Ferrata here is for all ages and a must do! If you want to push yourself out of your comfort zone but in a safe way, this is for you! The rush of adrenaline is amazing and the sense of accomplishment you’ll feel afterwards is like nothing else.
7. The Solitude!
We live in a time where National, Provincial and State Parks are overwhelmed and beyond capacity, solitude can’t be found in nearby Banff and Jasper National Parks anymore. If you’re looking to disconnect and embrace these mountains, this is the place to do it!
8. The Staff!
There is something that words cannot describe about the staff at any of the CMH lodges, they become family! My words won’t do this justice but from the chefs to the guides to the lodge staff and everyone in-between, they are all amazing people that you get so close to in such a short period of time. Leaving day gets emotional and its the friends I make here that keeps me coming back.
