CMH Bobbie Burns
While it might feel like it's perfectly in the middle of nowhere, Bobbie Burns Lodge is actually one of the shortest trip from Calgary. Less time in transit means more time on and off the snow, which is perfect as "The Burns" has the largest wine cellar in the entire CMH collection.Outside, the sheer size of the area will leave you speachless. Expect rolling glacier terrain, high alpine discoveries, the old growth forest of the Northern Selkirks, and the bottomless snow that brings powder connoisseurs back year after year.
Skiing and Boarding
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 making it ideal for 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.
