The Big 5-0

Reading Time: < 1 minutes

It’s hard to believe it was half a century ago that visionary Hans Gmoser introduced the world to Canadian Mountain Holidays and the rapture of heli-skiing, and had us dreaming of the penultimate ski holiday destination: the Bugaboos. Spectacular accommodations nestled in the alpine with untouched powder in all directions became part of history, with crown princes, Hollywood, titans of industry, World Cup racers—and skiers like you—learning that the dream is indeed doable. With 11 locations in the Selkirks, Monashees, Purcells and Cariboos, CMH has special weeks all winter: Family, First Timers, Women’s Only, Experts Only and Nostalgic 50th Anniversary.
