Mistaya Lodge - Heli Access Backcountry Ski & Split Weeks

Helicopter Access Backcountry Ski & Split Weeks at Mistaya Lodge

 

Our remote lodge weeks are all inclusive from start to finish, and some of the most comfortable and enjoyable programs we run. Weeks with us on these programs are fully catered, and come with a private chef who will accompany (and often ski with) our group throughout the week. Helicopter access required to access the lodge comes included in the program cost, along with guiding services and lodge rental accomodation. 2 Lead Guides are IFMGA (Internationally) Certified Mountain Guides, along with 1 ACMG (Nationally) Certified Apprentice Ski Guide or tailguide. This allows us to cater well to the entire group's motivations and abilities. The main goal of the week is to chase as much good skiing as we can in these big mountains, however many of our guests appreciate the opportunity on these weeks to learn new skills or polish old ones, or focus on education and developing skills sets for the guests that ask that of us while we're at the lodge.

 

Our Home Away From Home

 

Located in the WildCat Creek Basin at 6,700 feet elevation, Mistaya lodge is a 2000 square foot post and beam structure with six spacious guest rooms, indoor washrooms, a large, modern kitchen, and million-dollar views of the surrounding peaks and glaciers from each of the comfortable common areas. Mistaya Lodge was built by founders Ron Blaue and Jane Girvan in the late 1980’s and is an outstanding blend of complex Canadian Rockies terrain which benefits from a deeper than average snowpack for this area.
