New York - September 7, 2011: At CMH Heli-Skiing, the beginning of the school year marks the end of summer, but the impending arrival of winter also marks a time to celebrate the joy of learning and the achievement of kids.  In this spirit, the company that invented Heli-Skiing almost 50 years ago is offering a variety of interesting and exciting trips:

What better way to reward skiing kids over the winter vacation than with an amazing Family Trip in Western Canada?  For those with 12- to 17-year-olds, this is the ultimate White Christmas. Families begin the day skiing together, but kids can return to the lodge when they tire to participate in various fun, supervised indoor and outdoor activities -- including a climbing wall, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, hockey and broomball, building igloos and snowmen, and doing crafts in the lodge.  In the evening, a family dinner will be served with special menu choices for the kids.  Adding to the festive atmosphere, there will be Christmas celebrations, including a beautiful tree with presents for everyone in the lodge (and Santa may even show up in a helicopter!).  For dates and prices: 


*Younger children are welcome but guests must provide childcare (a non-skier, "nanny" rate is offered)

While anyone is welcome, this trip is designed to inspire the next generation of young skiers and boarders.  Those 12 - 25 years old will receive a 50% discount off the list price and half of the guaranteed vertical feet when traveling with another adult.   A total of four trips in March and April 2012 offer the ultimate exciting spring break getaway.    CMH jokes that they offer a new (and better) way for the next generation to get high (and they mean really high) and offers a warning that Heli-Skiing can be addictive.  For more information:
