TransWorld Snowboarding and Josh Dirksen traveled up to the Galena Lodge at Canadian Mountain Holiday to meet up with a collection of snowboarders from around the globe in search of 5 star heli-boarding and a plush backcountry lodge experience. CMH has been perfecting access to this British Columbia backcountry for the last 42 years. Snow conditions were all time and the CMH guides showed us the best terrain available.
Your dreams of endless untracked powder runs will come true here. In a typical week of heli-boarding you can expect to log 70,000-plus vertical feet. And with all that snowboarding done each day, you develop quite an appetite. But an elite crew of CMH chefs can handle satisfying the hungriest of giants.
Transworld Snowboarding and CMH have been working together for the last couple seasons with pro rider signature sessions at their Galena Lodge. Next season you can expect there to be another one and more chances to snowboard with your favorite pro. So save your money and see at Canadian Mountain Holiday next season!
