Après anything is great. There is just something about sharing your day with friends and family over food and drinks that makes it all worthwhile. However, when your après everything sustenance includes an exclusive pairing dinner and is preceded by hikes through Canada's Columbia Mountains it is elevated to new heights (pun intended)!
This is exactly the case as CMH, the leader in helicopter-accessed

To bring you this ultimate foodie experience, CMH has partnered with three award-winning beverage makers; British Columbia’s Hester Creek Estate Winery, Field House Brewing Co., and Banff-based Park Distillery. Each evenings’ events pair innovative, indulgent menus from top CMH chefs with expertly crafted beverages from the presenting partners, but only after you have earned it.
Preceding the truly Canadian culinary experience, you and other guests will hike the remote Columbia Mountains to work up an appetite, first hiking rarely visited landscapes or climbing the iconic Mt. Nimbus Via Ferrata. The unique opportunity continues into the evenings (after you've showered of course) discussing ingredients, techniques and pairings while obtaining industry secrets that you won't get anywhere else.

“We set out to create a complete sensory adventure from days hiking among stunning scenery, to plated journeys with perfectly paired beverages in the evenings,” says Suzanne Belke, Director of Hospitality, CMH Heli-Skiing & Summer Adventures. “Inspired by the abundance of passionate producers and makers in British Columbia and Alberta, Alpine Appétit is designed to showcase the incredible quality of the region’s farm-fresh ingredients and finest libations in a way that indulges the senses among good company.”
Iconic CMH Bobbie Burns Lodge is a Location Unlike Any Other
A sensory immersion of this magnitude needs a location that is equal. For that CMH has chosen their iconic Bobbie Burns lodge for this bucket-list-worthy trip. Fresh off of an $8.4 million redevelopment in 2019, CMH Bobbie Burns lodge took design inspiration from its wilderness surroundings, incorporating natural timber, stone and metal elements blended with sleek modern lines. An outdoor hot tub, wood-fired sauna, steam room and massage services provide all the relaxing necessities to complete a truly luxe mountain lodge apres experience.
What does a trip like this run you? Dine, drink and explore wide-open spaces beginning August 20, 2021. Three-night experiences start at $4,575, and include all lodging, daily helicopter access, meals and transportation. Good news is that those are in Canadian dollars so if you're reading this from the U.S. it'll be a little less but still very worth it.
