CMH Heli-Skiing Offers High Season Pay-As-You-Play Ski Trips
CMH Pay-As-You-Play Heli-Skiing program provides skier security and peace of mind: the
perfect combination for heli-skiers watching their wallet or concerned about snow conditions.
Banff, Alberta (Vocus) February 26, 2010 -- Helicopter skiing in British Columbia just got more accessible with
high season Pay-As-You Play heli-ski programs. Due to high demand, additional Pay-As-You-Play spaces in
high-season have recently opened up at the remote backcountry Gothics Lodge, March 13 – 18, 2010, for a 5-day,
over-the-top, heli-ski powder experience.
Heli-skiers are a committed group, with snow quality being of paramount importance. Pay-As-You Play trips
allow skiers to mitigate the risk of snow conditions and maintain a budget, by allowing skiers to pay only for the
skiing they choose to do. As much or as little as they want, and as conditions permit. The initial trip cost of only
$4,190 CAD covers ground transfers to the lodge from Calgary, Canada, accommodation, meals and services,
with skiers being charged only on the actual vertical they choose to ski. Trips come with no guaranteed footage,
with skiers being charged at a rate of $145 CAD per 1,000 vertical meters skied (3,280 vertical feet). Because it
is all about the skiing, these meters are calculated on the amount the skier travels down the mountain, not the
vertical lift of the helicopter.
For heli-skiers who crave a guaranteed amount of powder, this same 5-day trip in the Gothics, March 13 – 18,
2010, offers the option of purchasing a Signature CMH experience for only $7,350 CAD with a guarantee of
achieving 21,780 vertical meters (71,000 feet) of glorious skiing. Additional skiing beyond the guarantee is
charge at $105 CAD per 1,000 vertical meters (3,280 vertical feet).
Heli-Skiing in the Gothics can be fast and furious. With just three groups of skiers sharing one Bell 212
helicopter, dedicated IFMGA and ACMG certified guides lead guests safely to some of the most coveted secret
