About Mica Heliskiing
Our terrain is definitely a major factor in what makes Mica Heliskiing so special! Mother Nature has blessed us with natural steep fall-line tree runs, countless pillow lines, dramatic alpine ridges and bowls and endless glacier runs. With eight distinct main valleys and runs between 600 and 1800 vertical meters (1900 – 5900 feet), there’s something for everyone!
Mica Heliskiing's tenure encompasses approximately 72,000 hectares (close to 178,000 acres) on the western slopes of the Rocky Mountains in British Columbia, Canada. This spectacular area lies precisely where the moisture laden air from the Pacific Ocean collides with the cooler, dryer arctic air mass of the Canadian Rockies ice fields. The result is consistently deep, dry powder from early December through the end of April, with between 13 – 20 meters (42 – 66 feet) of annual snowfall!
Mica Heli Guides the leader in boutique, small group heliskiing. Rated “best heliskiing” by SKIING Magazine in their 2011 Resort Guide. Maximum 16 guests, two or three groups of four skiers or boarders share one A-Star helicopter, or one group of four in a Bell 407 with two guides. Ski or board terrain custom tailored to your desires. Spectacular backcountry lodge one hour north of Revelstoke BC accessible only by helicopter. Forget down days! No-fly days are rare and complimentary catskiing for backup. Mica Heliskiing is renowned for having an excellent safety record, the most diverse ski terrain with the deepest driest powder on the planet.
