CMH Galena: The heliskiing area for experts!
Sorry, but this CMH lodge is not for heliskiing beginners. If you don’t want to sink in this snow hole, you should really master your board or skis in deep snow. And when we write deep snow, we mean deep snow!
Powder is in Galena the name of the game, say the guides. 18 meters of powder snow per season! This makes the eyes of experts shine and heliski first timers run a cold shiver down their spine. In Galena, the experts are among themselves. The 44 guests who are flown there by helicopter in four groups of eleven to the Badshot Range of the Selkirks can justifiably claim to be good skiers and snowboarders.
CMH Galena: Challenging Tree Skiing in Canada
For those who have made it this far, there are not only huge glaciers and dramatic descents in high alpine terrain up to 3,100 meters awaiting them in this area of almost 1,200 square kilometers. Galena is also famous for its very demanding tree skiing. Those who love natural slalom through the trees will return again and again to the Galena area southeast of Revelstoke.
Mega Bubba, Hanging Gardens and Freefall are just a few of the dream runs in the Galena area that, skied in waist-high powder, you’ll never forget. Neither will the wonderful location of the Fly-In Lodge, 1050 meters above sea level, at the intersection of three valleys. The three valleys allow skiing in almost any weather. Downdays are therefore a rarity, so guests can enjoy the amenities of the recently renovated lodge with its new spa only from late afternoon.“
Galena demands everything from skiers. But if you arrive well prepared, you’ll experience the heliski week of a lifetime. Ideal preparation is a Steep & Deep course, as offered by the ski school in Fernie.
