Heli-Skiing in Glacier National Park, Canada
No need to take a week off work to find fresh pow. Instead, head four hours from Calgary International Airport (fly direct from major US airports) to Heather Mountain Lodge, from where you’ll enjoy two days of unlimited vertical, fresh powder heli-skiing over two mountain terrains. You’ll get use of powder-specific gear, a hot breakfast buffet, picnic lunch, après ski snacks, and a three-course dinner.
Beverage of choice: Locally brewed Kokanee beer. Had little too much the night before? Opt for a Caesar, a Bloody Mary made with Clamato.
Be sure to pack: Layers, as the chopper gets hot; no need to dress up for dinner at this casual mountain lodge.
Book it: From $3,840 double occupancy, canadianheli-skiing.com, December, January, and March
