All guests, staff and supplies are transferred by helicopter to Mica Lodge. 

To ensure safe and efficient helicopter transfers, please respect the following guidelines:

  • Soft sided duffel bags only. Avoid bags with wheels or rigid frames. 
  • Maximum bag size is 30 x 24 x 16 inches / 100 litres
  • Carry ski and snowboard boots separately.
    • Boot bags are acceptable.

If you are bringing your own skis or board DO NOT pack your belongings in your ski or board bag. There is limited room in the ski basket and a fully packed ski or board bag will not fit. We do encourage you to use our powder skis or snowboards.

Excess or improperly packed gear that results in additional flight time will be charged a minimum of $500 per guest. If your luggage does not meet the above requirement, you may be asked to re-pack your belongings.  

You are encouraged to leave excess luggage and ski/board bags in our Revelstoke office while at Mica.



Mica Heli is a Ship Skis partner.  Make traveling with your ski gear and luggage easy by arranging door-to-door transportation of your gear to or from any address in the world.



Phones and other electronic devices are allowed into the field. You will be asked to turn your phone to Airplane Mode, and ensure that it is placed more than 30cm from your beacon. If you would like to use a GoPro camera, please make sure it is helmet mounted rather than chest mounted.

Note that drones are not permitted at Mica Heli due to Transport Canada regulations.
