Bucket List It: Why You Need to Get Here

Imagine five-star meals served next to floor-to-ceiling windows. Rooftop hot tubs with perfect views of alpine glow. Art from the next breakthrough artist on the walls. Dinner with a Fortune 500 CEO (who’d rather you not make a big deal of it), craft cocktails with a pro skier (who probably wouldn’t mind if you did make a big deal), rubbing elbows with the film team making the next movie to sweep Telluride, Banff and Sundance while you sip coffee by the fire. 

Imagine you climb into that hot tub with a glass of wine after skiing. All. Day. Long. But not just any ski runs. Runs on snow that no one else has touched since the last storm deposited 40 centimeters (2+ feet, for the Americans) on the mountains.

Now imagine all you have to do after each run is step into a helicopter. The flight reveals some of the most breathtaking views you’ve ever seen, rank upon rank of glaciated peaks, and before you can even comprehend the deep wild of it, the heli lands you for your next run.

Imagine repeating this for five days straight.

What if it could be real? There’s a reason a trip to Mica Heliski is on many a bucket list. If it’s not on yours yet, we’re not sure what else is on there, but it’s probably not as cool as this.
