Heli-Skiing & Cat-Skiing
Heli-skiing (Randy Lincks photo)
Seen from the Valley, the Lizard Range rises to a series of spiky peaks. Beyond the ridge, the elevation keeps rising to the playground of two of Fernie's snowcat operators.
A third operator has tenure on the other side of the valley. Each offers a unique cat-skiing experience in the deep, dry powder of the Kootenay Rockies.
