Powder and Poker, CMH Raises The Stakes

New York, New York—This year, Canadian Mountain Holidays (CMH), offering what many consider the greatest powder skiing in the world, joins forces with the man who is reputed to be the greatest poker instructor in the world for the first ever Powder and Poker trip—an exclusive seven day retreat for snow and Texas Hold ‘Em fans.

Canadian Mountain Holidays, www.canadianmountainholidays.com, invented Heli-Skiing forty years ago and continues to offer the world’s most comprehensive and spectacular wilderness skiing experience. Their twelve distinct ski areas in the remote mountains of British Columbia cover over 6,000 square miles. Powder and Poker will take place at the Adamant Lodge. The Heli-Skiing is in the Selkirk Mountains, a north- south range famed for its long glaciers, deep valleys, and rugged vistas. The Adamants also have an excellent selection of tree skiing to complement the huge open glacier terrain. The Adamants are one of CMH’s most popular areas.
