Bighorn Heli Lodge Revelstoke
Canada: British Columbia
Bighorn Revelstoke; unique style and luxury service for the most discerning of skiers at their private heliski facility in the British Columbia backcountry.
Chris and Michael Kirkland are the owners of Bighorn, located in British Columbia, Canada.
For decades Revelstoke has been the exclusive retreat of the elite heliskiing community. Now it has broadened its appeal. The new Revelstoke Mountain Resort is the only ski resort in the world to offer lift, cat, heli and backcountry skiing from one village base. After three superb seasons, the reception it has enjoyed from the skiing community has been without parallel.
Revelstoke has the longest skiable vertical descent in North America, with access to 1,263 hectares of world class terrain. The brand new lift system opens up the whole mountain, so gladed trees, powder filled bowls and miles of groomed pistes are yours to explore. There are also excellent facilities for beginners and intermediates, with a magic carpet to mid-mountain and long, winding intermediate runs right from the peak.
Experience cat skiing with unlimited vertical in the legendary Selkirk Mountains. Take in the breathtaking views of the Monashee Mountain range and the Columbia River from South Bowl, Montana Bowl and Kokanee Bowl, all in deep, light powder snow.
British Columbia was the birthplace of heliskiing, and Revelstoke is the jewel in its majestic crown. The area has been a magnet for heliskiers for over 50 years, attracted by the massive annual snowfall of light, dry powder and the incredible variety of terrain to explore. Bighorn brings this right to your doorstep, with the ultimate luxury of your own private helipad. In minutes, you'll find yourself at the top of a wilderness peak, with nothing but miles of pristine powder, glacial bowls and tree skiing that surpasses anything else on Earth. This is the ultimate in skiing luxury, reserved solely for residents of Bighorn.
