CMH Heli Skiing

CMH Heli Skiing

Operation Overview

In 1965 our founder, Hans Gmoser, invented Heli-Skiing. Since then, CMH has staked out an exclusive 3 million acre region across 11 unique areas – amongst the best skiing mountains on earth. At one- third the size of Switzerland, our available terrain is large enough to be its own sovereign state with a wealth of untapped virgin powder fields and a chief export of euphoric skiing experience. What are you waiting for? Open the door to a lifelong obsession.
