Win a Heli-trip to Canada
7 January 2013 No comments

If heli-skiing or heli-snowboarding is one of your new year’s resolutions, Ellis Brigham might be able to help you achieve it in 2013! We’ve teamed up with Pure Powder (exclusive agents for Canadian Mountain Holidays), K2, CMH, & Tourism British Columbia & Square Mile Magazine to put together an incredible prize package worth over £7000!

The winners of this prize will experience the ultimate skiing or snowboarding trip in British Columbia plus their choice of Arc'teryx clothing & K2 Skis.

BC is Canada’s outdoor playground offering year round outdoor adventure. This most westerly province stretches from the Rocky Mountains in the east to the Pacific Ocean in the west.

With an abundance of snowfall and endless valleys of perfectly spaced trees and open bowls in the Selkirk and Monashee ranges there is never a shortage of fresh powder to explore. It is a favourite due to its shorter more flexible trip dates and it is ideal for strong skiers on a heli-trip for the first time or those with limited time off.

Accommodation is in the small lakeside town of Nakusp in CMH's K2 Rotor lodge with a lively bar and local hot springs to enjoy. CMH K2 at Kootenay is a new unique partnership between K2 skis and CMH for 2012/13. In their own words the lodge is 'The coolest motor lodge in the world!'. With the Rotor Lodge as your base camp you’ll be well placed to access the huge terrain on offer in the Monashee and Selkirk Mountain Ranges.

Plus with K2 involved, there will be the chance to ski along-side K2 athletes…this really is a trip of a lifetime to give you the very best 2013 imaginable!

The prize includes the following (for 2 people):

  • Return flights to Canada and transfers to/from the CMH K2 Rotor lodge
  • 3 full days of heli skiing
  • 13,110 vertical metres of guaranteed skiing or snowboarding
  • All accommodation (in twin or double room) and food whilst at the lodge.
