Short heli-tours can view Zymagotitz River, the valley located between Mount Remo and Sleeping Beauty Mountain, while longer tours can view the northwest backcountry behind Sleeping Beauty Mountain, following the Kalum Lake valley back to the base.

Custom tours are also available for backcountry recreation* drop-offs and pick-ups or mountaintop picnics and proposals. *check out our FAQ on the right abt limited access to backcountry landings*
