Heli and Cat Skiing

The Powder Mecca off Highway 6

Backcountry dreams...fresh powder, local knowledge, all-day untracked lines and then a warm place at night to dream about doing it all over again. Highway 6 from Lumby on through Monashee Pass touches some of  the best skiing in the world. Highway 6 is the gateway to the Monashees, Kootenays and Selkirk Mountains, the site of a long forgotten gold rush. Kingfisher  Heliskiing and Keefer Lake Lodge Catskiing have begun a revitalization with their own goldrush. This time around it is a rush for deep powder snow! Winter thrill seekers flock to the area to get whisked to the top of the mountains in a helicopter or a quick ride in a snow cat. You don't have to be an expert to experience the fun of Helskiing or Catskiing. Professional ski guides find terrain that is suited to the ability ogf the group. As long as you are in good physical condition and can make long radius turns down long and sometimes steeper blue runs, you can do it.
