These include Mount Matchlee, Victoria Peak and Rugged Mountain to name a few. All of these peaks have a number of routes from straightforward scrambles to more technical lines.

My climbing partner and myself looked forward to this trip as a once in a life time adventure. Now we say a helicopter fly in mountain experience with IAG will be an annual event!Dale Combs, Duncan, BC.
It was great. Lyle was very methodical and we both felt safe the entire time — even my mother who had never worn a harness before in her life.Colby Barrett, Colorado, USA.
We were more than impressed with Jan as our guide! Our heli climbing on Mount Matchlee was a memorable experience! Looking forward to returning sometime in the near future. I'm still enjoying the after-effects of our day!Judith Freed, Vero Beach, Florida
