A mountain retreat like no other; Bighorn is both a heli-ski lodge and a 5 star ski chalet. The best elements of each have been used to create a new definition of luxury. Bighorn offers a truly bespoke experience with private heliskiing from the house helipad and access to unbeatable ski terrain at Revelstoke Mountain Resort. Bighorn is the finest private accommodation in North America, serviced by an award winning European chef and dedicated team of staff.
The impressive timber-framed building was designed with indulgence in mind. The triple height great room, with its roaring log fire, is the perfect setting for canapés, or just for winding down after a day of skiing. Dinner can be taken in the elegant formal dining room, or in the more casual setting of the kitchen, where you can watch the chef prepare your food on the teppanyaki grill.
The house also features a sizeable hi-tech cinema and eight spacious guest suites, each with its own custom bathroom. A world class spa area offers everything you need to restore body and mind after a hard day's skiing, including an indoor current pool, sauna, fully equipped gym, massage rooms and a large outdoor hot tub, where you can relax and enjoy the integrated sound system and sweeping views across the valley
For decades Revelstoke has been the exclusive retreat of the elite heliskiing community. Now it has broadened its appeal. The new Revelstoke Mountain Resort is the only ski resort in the world to offer lift, cat, heli-ski and backcountry skiing from one village base.
Revelstoke has the longest skiable vertical descent in North America, with access to 1,263 hectares of world-class terrain. The brand new lift system opens up the whole mountain, so gladed trees, powder filled bowls and miles of groomed pistes are yours to explore. There are also excellent facilities for beginners and intermediates, with a magic carpet to mid-mountain and long, winding intermediate runs right from the peak.
Experience cat skiing with unlimited vertical in the legendary Selkirk Mountains. Take in the breathtaking views of the Monashee Mountain range and the Columbia River from South Bowl, Montana Bowl and Kokanee Bowl, all in deep, light powder snow.
British Columbia was the birthplace of heliskiing, and Revelstoke is the jewel in its majestic crown. The area has been a magnet for heliskiers for over 50 years, attracted by the massive annual snowfall of light, dry powder and the incredible variety of terrain to explore. Bighorn brings this right to your doorstep, with the ultimate luxury of your own private helipad.
In minutes, you'll find yourself at the top of a wilderness peak, with nothing but miles of pristine powder, glacial bowls and tree skiing that surpasses anything else on earth. This is the ultimate in skiing luxury, reserved solely for residents of Bighorn.
The team of staff at Bighorn Lodge will be delighted to help you tailor your own bespoke ski week. Be sure to take advantage of everything the mountains can offer!
