My three days in the Purcell Mountains with CMH were short in duration but long-lasting in memories. The days were filled with thrills, challenge and camaraderie as helicopters transported small teams to beautifully rugged and remote mountain locations. We hiked, scrambled, and climbed steep walls;...More

You do not need to in most areas. A Visa credit card works fine. I have only needed cash when I was snowmobiling in very remote areas on other trips. I had brought Canadian money with me on the CMH trip and never used it.
