Set your basecamp in the Buggaboos at the world's first Heli-Ski lodge. From this spaciouys chalet, you'll take in the same mind-blowing scenery that's astounded CMH guests since 1965. Mixing alpine history and modern comforts alike, Bugaboo Lodge has one of the best hot tub views on the planet. During the day, expect perfect slopes filled with mellow fluff, along with long runs that stretch from peak to valley.
Skiing and Boarding
Characterized by mighty granite spires, the Bugaboo Mountains offer immense variety in terrain, with plentiful ski runs both above and below tree line. Despite the draw of these world-renowned mountains, Bugaboo Lodge remains the sole base for skiing among these majestic peaks and glaciers.
The Bugaboo's are both a dramatic and inspiring mountain range. These mountains are stupendous and incomparable with so few visitors you will feel as if you have the world at your feet (or skis!).
Skier Level: Strong intermediate or advanced skiers with experience skiing in powder, snowboarders need to be very strong riders.
