It's hard to imagine how a mountain with so much presence could still be regarded by many adventure seekers and ski buffs as a 'best kept secret'. Yet despite boasting the highest peak in the Canadian Rockies, Mount Robson has only recently been gaining widespread attraction.
One such company that is helping bring the best of Mount Robson to ski and hiking enthusiasts is Robson HeliMagic. They offer a highly personalized adventure travel experience that differs from other larger-scale group-focused tour operators.
"Our philosophy is 'smaller is better'," says Christine Dolbec, manager at RHM. "We want to avoid the 'factory skiing' mentality, so our guests can enjoy the experience without pressure."With 1500 square kilometres of wide alpine bowls, steep faces and classic glades, an average up to seven metres annual snowfall and only two guides per group with smaller groups, Robson HeliMagic appears heavily focused on fostering a true mountain experience.
Some rates: 1 day: $769 - 3 days: $3655 - 7 days: $8438 Bookings are now open for the 2010-2011 Winter ski season. Ski and snowboarders should book early to reserve the prime winter slots. Learn more: Robson HeliMagic on CityGuide.
