Revelstoke and CMH on Matador TV

  
  
  

“I want to live in Revelstoke, British Columbia.” is how Ross Borden, one of the founding members of Matador, began an online article describing his experience heliskiing with CMH Revelstoke

The article, and this accompanying video, Powder Highway Part 3: Heli-Skiing in Revelstoke, is the crown jewel of a three part series chronicling the Matador crew’s adventures along what they call the Powder Highway, with stops at Fernie and Kicking Horse along the way.

Locals might argue about what constitutes the real powder highway, but everyone would likely agree that Revelstoke would have to be part of it.  The article compares Revelstoke to what Jackson Hole might have been like in the 60s, and with a taste of full-throttle sledding, lift service at the legendary Revelstoke Mountain Resort, and helicopter access to the world's greatest skiing, the Matador boys did get enough flavors to have some authority on the full Revelstoke fun factor.

Borden goes on to be blown away by the CMH Heli-Skiing experience, and doesn’t hold back on giving us some nice compliments that we just gotta share:

“I’ve flown with a handful of heli outfits in Nevada and Alaska; I can say with confidence that CMH is the most professional heli operator I’ve ever come across”

“First of all, they have all the non-skiing logistics down to a science. From group trainings in snow and avalanche safety to the lodge where you stay, from equipment to 5-star dinners, everything is convenient and you are getting the very best.”

Borden concludes by saying that CMH Revelstoke had some of the most spectacular ski terrain he’s seen in 25 years of skiing, and then suggests booking at least a week to really get the most out of the experience.  We couldn’t agree more!

The only thing that would have been better, would be if the Matador team had arrived for some truly blower powder!  While their visit looked fun, most of us who have skied or snowboarded with CMH know that the powder is often way, way, way deeper than what the video shows!

Thanks for the good work, Ross!

The visual on this is amazing, the music, annoying.  
CMH is great but you should really give Selkirk a try before you judge what Revy has to offer :)

The entire area of Revelstoke and all that it has to offer is amazing. Truly a deep powder mecca with a number of top notch Heli-Cat Canada outfitters including CMH & Selkirk ready to help you make the most of it.
