The Hardcore Skier: Canadian Mountain Holidays, British Columbia
Canadian Mountain Holidays, the world’s oldest and largest heli-skiing operator, has just added nearly 18,000 acres to its ski terrain in the Selkirk sub-range of the Columbia Mountains—that’s an area almost as large as the three biggest ski resorts in North America (Whistler, Big Sky, Vail) combined. True powder seekers opt for the completely customizable and private Nomads program, which includes two dedicated guides, a Bell 212 helicopter and seven days of complete access to every type of run imaginable. Settle into a fully equipped lakeside chalet at the Halcyon Hot Springs Village and Spa for après-ski—but not before taking a restorative dip in the natural mineral-water pools. Rates start at $133,590 (for seven days for six people); 800-661-0252; canadianmountainholidays.com.
