Via Ferrata In British Columbia

This is a great photo from the Nimbus Tower in the Purcell Mountains of  British Columbia.

Before we tackle the via ferrata, we spend a day heli-hiking -- it's basically heli-skiing sans skis … touches us down on a broad ridge above the timberline for a gentle stroll with jaw-dropping alpine views in all directions.
The group ranges from late teens to early 70s, with two things in common: Everyone is fit and fairly well-off. At about $800 a day, this sport doesn't attract the impecunious alpinists you find Dumpster-diving around Yosemite's Camp 4.”

Sounds like a cheap place to stay at only $800/day.

Ok the price is a little steep

You will find the money is well spent as CMH takes great care of its clients. I encourage your first trip to be the Bobbie Burns lodge. It has lots of activity and zip lines. The Via-ferrata is killer and will make you feel like your on top of the world. It is about as close to heaven as you can get right here on earth.
