Next, a private helicopter will meet you in the Cline valley to take you up and over the Canadian Rocky Mountains to a high alpine meadow where you’ll be making fresh tracks in your snowshoes. Explore for as long as you choose to, fortified by an Irish coffee or hot chocolate. After touch down back at the heli-pad and a warming lunch, continue on to Abraham Lake, famous for a natural phenomenon in which trapped methane causes bubbles to freeze beneath the ice on the lake’s surface.
