It has a helicopter in it, had to post it.
Deep DEEP powder skiing with James Heim
This video popped up on our radar this morning and we saw that there is a short shot of a helicopter in it. We don't know which operator but we figured that since we saw the chopper that was all we needed to post it! This is a heli-centred website afterall.
We apologize up front because the powder shots in this little video will ruin your day if you are sitting in an office! Tell ya what, check out our list of operators here, give one a call and book a trip. There has been a few storm cycles roll through lately and we are expecting an epic March. Come on now...pick up that phone, fake an illness and get out of the office!
La Nina, baby come back!
Here is a little look back at some La Nina powder from up at Snowwater last season. In January 2011, Zack Giffin and Callum Pettit headed up for a quick trip to Snowwater Heliskiing outside of Nelson BC. They took along photographer Grant Gunderson and tore up the place for a few days. Here is some great footage of the nice pillow lines one could expect at Snowwater this season...
Word on the street is that the snow is piling up at Snowwater and they will be all fired up for another La Nina pounding! They even put a little extra work in this early season and got their back-up cat roads into Peak 2 which is a first from what we hear.
For now, enjoy the video, check out Snowwater's availability, book a trip, and then just try to get some work done!

BC's youngest heli skiing operation gets a boost from Powder Magazine
Ever since we were kids we dreamed about getting our picture in Powder Magazine. What is the next best thing to getting yourself on the pages of Powder? Having your heliskiing company featured on the cover! Jason Remple, founder of Stellar Heliskiing in Kaslo BC did just that with this awesome shot of Chad Sayers. The pic was taked during a window of sunshine in the middle of last season's epic La Nina storm cycle. The man behind the camera was Jordan Manely (Sherpas). Great shot from a great operation. We are looking forward to checking out Stellar this season and bringing you more photos, stories and videos of the experience.
If you are looking for an amazing experience in the mountains, consider Stellar Heli Skiing this season. Their rates are reasonable and their terrain looks epic. We had the pleasure of skiing with Jason as our guide on another trip last season and we can tell you, he is an excellent guide. We also just got word that our good friend Martin (formerly of Valhalla PowderCats) has joined the Stellar team. With another La Nina season around the corner, incredible terrrain and a guiding staff that is second to none, Stellar will be the place to heliski this season!
