Type of Trip
The stunning Selkirk Mountains are beautiful for hiking and skiing. Accessing some of the most remote spots, albeit with the best vistas, is not always easy. This is why it is important you go with someone that knows the region well. Additionally, on this Selkirk Mountains guided trek with heli-drop you will have both a guide and helicopter to access some of the most pristine places in the region.
Our Selkirk heli-drop trekking excursions are either one day or multi day tours. This of course will depend on your preference. On our one day tour we take you to either Valhalla or Kokanee Provincial Parks, ridges close to Baldface Lodge or summits near to the Whitewater Ski Resort. On the other hand, if you want a multi-day tour we can arrange overnight stays at some beautiful mountain lodges. Whichever plan you decide on, you will surely get the chance to discover beautiful landscapes as you learn about the wildlife and nature.
You will need to have prior experience and be at an intermediate or advanced level for this excursion. Also, you will need to have a good fitness level. Of course, I will be there at all times to assist and guide you. Furthermore, because we tour in small groups, you will get personalised attention. This is a great experience for nature lovers that want to explore the remote areas of these stunning Canadian mountains!

What happens if I need to cancel the trip?
If you decide to cancel, you’ll get a 100% refund (minus fees) if the cancellation is notified up to 60 days before the start of the tour, a 75% refund (minus fees) if you cancel between 59 and 30 days before the start of the tour, and a 50% refund if you cancel between 29 and 21 days before the start of the tour. If you cancel less than 21 days before the first day of the tour, you won’t receive a refund. Take into account, however, that if accommodation, flights or transfers were included in the trip you booked, then a different policy may apply as the guide will be bound by the provider’s cancellation policy.
What happens if the guide cancels the trip because of bad weather/unsuitable conditions?
If bad weather or unsuitable conditions force the guide to cancel the trip, he or she will: a) propose a similar activity at a different place where conditions are better, or b) propose to postpone the activity until a later date, or c) cancel. If you refuse option a), our cancellation policy will apply. Please note, however, that the call to cancel a trip due to bad weather can only be made by the guide (not the client).
What happens if the guide doesn’t show up or cancels for personal reasons?
If the guide cancels for reason of injury or other, you will get a 100% refund on your trip.
About the Guide
I am an IFMGA and ACMG-certified mountain guide based in Nelson, British Columbia. I'm the lead guide at Summit Mountain Guides, a guiding agency I co-founded back in 2007 and which offers year-round guiding services and courses in Canada and Europe.
The mountains of western Canada have been my playground since 1992. I'll be happy to take you mountaineering, backcountry skiing, rock climbing, hiking or ice climbing in this area I know so well. From day trips to multi-day adventures, I can guarantee an unforgettable and safe experience.
The SMG team of guides will help you with your trip's logistics, safety and contingency plans so that you get the most out of your backcountry experience and can just focus on having an amazing time on the mountain!
