Revelstoke’s Nicole Fricot is now the Chief Executive Office (CEO) of Mica Heliskiing. For the last year or so she was the director of Economic Development for the City of Revelstoke.

Nicole has also been an independent business strategist and consultant over the years which included positions with Community Futures and other community groups.

According to a posting on Wikipedia, Mica Heli Guides or Mica Heliskiing is a backcountry heliskiing lodge located on Kinbasket Lake across from Mica Dam in British Columbia, Canada. Mica Heli Guides is located about two hours drive north of the town of Revelstoke.

Mica Heli Guides was started in 2003 by Dan McDonald. McDonald was the founder of Fernie’s Island Lake Lodge.

Mica Heli Guides operates small group heliskiing, using A-Star helicopters owned and operated by Arrow Helicopters. The 407 Helicopters are owned and operated by Elbow River Helicopters.

Mica Heliskiing's operating license encompasses approximately 300,000 acres on the western slopes of the Rocky Mountains in British Columbia, Canada. The lodge itself is located in the Rocky Mountain Trench which separates the Columbia Mountains to the west and the Rocky Mountains.

Mica Heliskiing is only accessible by helicopter in the winter and barge in the summer as there are no roads leading to the Mica Lodges. Mica is remotely located and off the grid. The nearest point of road access is located at the Mica Dam just past the town of Mica Creek and approximately two hours drive north of Revelstoke.
