Skiing and BoardingThe Monashees terrain encompasses 1,712 square kilometres (356 runs). Situated in the heart of the interior snowbelt featuring mature, naturally well-spaced forest. Between 60 and 90 percent of the skiing is done in the trees. The Monashees are also home to small group heli-skiing. Small groups allow skiers to wander further into the vast Monashees tenure. These small group trips will allow for maximum flexibility & fun!
The Monashees' reputation has been established because of the ski vision of two of the area's first guides, Sepp Renner and Rudi Gertsch. Tree skiing has now become the bread and butter of heli-skiing, far from where it began on the high summits and broad glaciers, but this transition was not because of a business decision. Renner and Gertsch started skiing the trees in the Monashees because it was possible in bad weather and accidentally found a whole new world of skiing. Not only was it more frequently stable enough to ski steeper terrain in the trees, but if they kept skiing the same slope during big storms and breaking up the slab development, they could continue skiing the popular slopes in safety even while the rest of the area was prone to avalanche.
Skier Level: Monashees offers the most difficult and challenging skiing of any of the CMH areas and is only for strong, experienced CMH Heli-Skiers.
