We're grateful to be able to fly all Alpine guests safely. Take a look at how we're currently working to maintain a safe and clean environment at the base and in the helicopter.
We are proud to be partnered with our friends from RECCO. The helicopter detector is an invaluable addition to SAR in the Bow Valley and can be used anywhere it is required in Alberta and BC.
Good morning from the Rockies! ☀️

“As the stars that shall be bright when we are dust, Moving in marches upon the heavenly plain, As the stars that are starry in the time of our darkness, To the end, to the end, they remain.” ~ Laurence Binyon
There’s a fresh coat in the Rockies this morning and it’s a beautiful day to fly!
Just another reason why flying a helicopter is truly an art form. 📷: @jeff_macpherson_photo

On Monday October 19th near the Robertson glacier there was a fatality involving a backcountry skier. Kananaskis Public Safety and Alpine Helicopters responded to the incident around 1430 hr. The incident happened due to the low early season snow coverage and related hazards in very low angle ski terrain wherein his skis bottomed out, and he pitched forward into a rocky area suffering severe trauma. The subject was not wearing a helmet at the time of the incident. This was not an avalanche incident. 10-30 cm of snow currently exists at treeline and this does not cover the rocks or any of the ground debris, if you do fall in these areas you will likely get hurt. The chance of hitting something and getting injured is quiet high. The days are getting shorter so be aware of darkness setting in. Once its dark, any evacuation is more complicated. While in the field yesterday forecasters witnessed many loose dry avalanches off steep terrain not running very far but still active, Alpine terrain was getting affected by winds so we suspect slab development to be ongoing in these areas. Consequences of being caught in even a small slid would result in injury due to the lack of snow and the chance of a ride over rocky terrain. Our condolences go out to those involved, Kananaskis Public Safety Team
The seasons are in transition and not long from now, we can enjoy sunny skies and snowy views ❄️ ☀️ 📷: @sazadventures
Well, that wasn’t in the forecast...14cm of the white stuff fell on Canmore last night! ❄️❄️❄️
Talus Lodge has recently completed a beautiful renovation to their lodge and we were lucky enough to help make it happen. Thanks to Thomas and Sara for all their support, we hope you have a great winter.
