Great Canadian Heliskiing (GCH) has 6 full time guiding positions available immediately for the upcoming 2017 – 18 season. Locations: Golden, BC (Heather Mountain Lodge) and Altay, China

Great Canadian Heliskiing has recently entered into a 5 year agreement to provide certified guiding, operating consultants, and avalanche planning services for Altai Mountain Holidays (AMH). Located in the extreme northwest corner of the country, (just south of Russia, east of Kazakhstan, west of Mongolia), AMH is China’s first and only mechanized skiing operation (snowmobile – assisted skiing, cat-skiing and heli-skiing) . Great Canadian Heliskiing’s role will be to support AMH in their goal of achieving Canadian operating standards equivalency.

Our Values: Safety first, then Service, then Skiing

Our Vision: To successfully assist our client, AMH, with their long-term goal of achieving Canadian equivalency operating standards for mechanized skiing while providing a sustainable adventure in the Altai mountains for guides from around the world.


● IMFGA, ACMG Ski/Apprentice Ski Guide, CSGA Level 2 or higher and CAA Level 2.
● Ski guiding and operational program experience suitable for the position. ● Positive attitude, strong work ethic, ability to synergize with a team.
● Potential candidates for guiding in China would need to be interested in a two month (or potentially longer) contract, be open to experiencing a new culture, and have constructive input. Not only for the AMH organization, but also the local non-certified guides (some of whom have a tradition of skiing that reaches back thousands of years and arguably the origin of skiing on horsehair – covered skis).
● Language: English required, Mandarin an asset.


● Wages start at $300 CDN per day and are commensurate with your certification and individual experience.

● WorkSafe BC insurance is provided in both China and Canada for Canadian residents.

Guiding in China overview: As a certified guide, you will be responsible for guiding mostly Chinese clientele through backcountry terrain, both cat skiing and heliskiing. In addition, there may be some opportunities to guide in the “ski-mobile” program, however, that is not our main objective and you do not need to have any snowmobile experience. Out of your 2 month contract you will be guaranteed 21 paid days out of every 30, whether there is guiding work or not. There are options to work more than your 21 allotted days, however, you will be responsible for your own personal wellness with respect to needing days off. Working every day of your 2 month contract is not recommended and will likely prevent you from returning. You will work with a team of 4 – 6 guides at a time with a mandate to have a minimum of 1 week overlap to transfer information from one guide team to another. There will always be at least one lead guide at all times who will give direction.
