CMH HIGH-FLYING HELI ADVENTURE FEATURED ON THE RICK MERCER REPORT
The Bobbie Burns High-Flying Heli Adventure, a Canadian Signature Experience from CMH Summer Adventures, was featured in the season premiere of The Rick Mercer Report, the wildly popular satirical news program that kicked off its 11th season on CBC last week.
In the premiere episode, Mercer tackled the Mt. Nimbus via ferrata and suspension bridge that make up CMH’s signature High-Flying Heli Adventure, with veteran CMH mountain guide and Bobbie Burns area manager, Bruce Howatt. Marveling at the extraordinary views of the area’s glaciers, mountains and vertiginous exposures, Mercer celebrated this unique CMH experience in the pristine Columbia Mountains.
“You don’t get to do this every day!” Mercer says in the episode, as he jumps in for a bracing swim in one of the Bobbie Burns’ glacial lakes. And after reaching the summit with a quick jog to the top of Mt. Nimbus, Mercer lifted his arms triumphantly and exclaimed “I can see Canada from up here—and she looks great!”
“We were thrilled to have Rick, who is such a great ambassador for Canada, out with CMH Summer Adventures to experience this extraordinary area of British Columbia from the awe-inspiring vantage that only CMH can deliver,” says Joe Flannery, President of CMH Heli-Skiing and Summer Adventures. “It was our pleasure to provide Rick a spectacular, safe and exhilarating experience in the Canadian wilderness!”
