Hit the Slopes, as well as the Books!
At CMH Heli-Skiing, the beginning of the school year marks the end of summer, but the impending arrival of winter also marks a time to celebrate the joy of learning and the achievement of kids. In this spirit, the company that invented Heli-Skiing almost 50 years ago is offering a variety of interesting and exciting trips:
FAMILY HELI-SKIING VACATIONS
What better way to reward skiing kids over the winter vacation than with an amazing Family Ski Vacation in BC? For those with 12- to 17-year-olds, this is the ultimate White Christmas. Families begin the day skiing together, but kids can return to the lodge when they tire to participate in various fun, supervised indoor and outdoor activities -- including a climbing wall, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, hockey and broomball, building igloos and snowmen. Each evening, a family dinner is served with kid-friendly options. Adding to the festive atmosphere, there will be Christmas celebrations, including a beautiful tree with presents for everyone in the lodge (and Santa may even show up in a helicopter!).
*Younger children are welcome but guests must provide childcare (a non-skier, “nanny” rate is offered)
NEXT GENERATION TRIP
While anyone is welcome, this trip is designed to inspire the next generation of heli-skiers and boarders. Skiers and riders 12 – 25 years old will receive a 50% discount for half of the guaranteed vertical when travelling with a full-paying adult. CMH is offer four trips in March and April 2012. Maybe the ultimate spring break ski trip. At CMH we joke that we offer a new (and better) way for the next generation to get high! WARNING: Heli-Skiing can be addictive. Check out the video here:
And don’t forget…POWDER U!
Powder 101? Powder 505? Or maybe Powder 707? Through our new Powder University, CMH offers courses for all levels – from those who are just discovering powder snow to those looking to hone their skills in the steep couloirs of the Cariboo Mountains and everything in between. For those who have already been granted their M.D. or D.D.S.., CMH’s Med School offers health-care providers and other professionals with an interest in health-related issues a variety of CME Heli-Skiing weeks run by 4 different medical practitioners and covering a range of topics. Powder U @ CMH was developed and is overseen by the “Dean of Deep Powder,” Roko Koell.
Our cirriculum for Powder U will be expanding in the next few weeks. To be informed of new courses, sign up to receive our e-newsletter.
