Leave the large crowds behind this summer and join the highly-accredited guides and staff at the world-famous Canadian Mountain Holidays (CMH), a Jet Linx Elevated Lifestyle partner. With exclusive access to thousands of acres of unspoiled beauty with unrivaled views, CMH Summer Adventures take heli-hiking to incredible heights. CMH operates three luxury lodges for summer adventures – CMH Bobbie Burns, CMH Bugaboos, and, making a return debut in 2018, CMH Cariboos. Guests are ferried by helicopter to their chosen CMH lodge, where the sky is the limit, and each lodge offers guests epic heli-hiking with a wide variety of breathtaking terrain.
In addition to some of the most stunning scenery on earth, amenities offered at the CMH Summer Adventures heli-accessed wilderness lodges combine old-fashioned comfort with a modern ambiance that mimics European alpine tradition. After a full day of exploring Mother Nature’s beautiful landscape, guests will enjoy delicious gourmet dinners, indulge with therapeutic messages or relax in outdoor hot tubs, relishing the days accomplishments. Explore one CMH’s luxury lodges – Bugaboos – and find your next adventure!
At CMH Bugaboos, guests are afforded spectacular views of the famed granite Bugaboo spires in the Purcell Mountains. Bugaboos is the highest of the three lodges at just over 4,900 feet above sea level, and is situated amid a thick pine forest on the east side of the famous spires. “Hikers can expect traditional hiking in the Bugaboos, from colorful meadow walks to hiking jagged mountain ridges,” describes Paul Lazarski, CMH Bugaboos and CHM Bobbie Burns long-term guide. “Bugaboos can offer a more gentle experience in terms of being able to hike, take in the scenery, stop for a bit, and get more education and information on what’s happening in terms of flora and fauna and the geology.”
Granite, slate and sedimentary rock are found in the Bugaboos. “Bugaboos is centered around a very dramatic set of granite spires similar to the climbing rock in Yosemite and many other places around the world – it’s the crème de la crème of rock climbing and translates into the widest variety of hiking terrain,” says Lazarski. “Realistically, with the right group and knowing the area, I could land you 20 km from the lodge and walk you back.”
