We have recieved word of a revolutionary new partnership between K2 Skis and the legendary CMH Heliskiing. Details are fuzzy at this point but stay tuned for the full announcement on September 20th at 9am PT. We are stoked to here what these two creative and ground-breaking companies have cooked up together.
In our travels we have seen ski companies supply an army of demos to operators. We have even seen specific skis designed for an area. But this feels a little bigger, a little more revolutionary...
The new lodge is taking shape up at Mica Heli this summer. The builders are taking advantage of the summer weather and getting this new 'shack' ready for the upcoming season. The above photo is going to be the view from the new dinning room. Think about it...ski in epic powder all day in Mica's legendary terrain and then enjoy a professioanly prepared meal looking out into this valley. Yup, I'm sold!
Big Mountains and Big Snow in this latest vid from Nothern Escape Heli-skiing
This new video edit just popped up on our radar so we thought we had better share it right away! It is the latest promo video published by Nothern Escape Heli-Skiing in collaboration with Big Tree Media. We find it so painful to watch videos like this in the springtime but hold out hope for another sick season next year!
The helitracks crew had the great pleasure to visit Snowwater heli skiing in early 2012. We have a lot more to share about our visit to Snowwater, in the meantime here are some of the photos we took on our trip. We would also like to thank Patrick, Maria, and the Snowwater staff for an incredible experience.
Do yourself a favor, take a break from work and check out this video. Then do yourself a huge favor, call three of your best friends and book a trip to Stellar Heliskiing. Jason, Martin and the crew are a heck of a lot of fun to ski with.
Oh... and the snow reports coming out of Stellar have been, well...Stellar!
Each year Mike Douglas and his crew step it up a notch. This year looks like a big notch!
It wasn't a good idea to watch this video on a Monday morning in August. All the fresh powder flashbacks to last season. All the dreams of what is to come this season...but first, all this work on my desk and a few months of the most painful season of the year: Fall!.
Season 6 of Salomon Freeski TV looks incredible. The new series starts rolling out across the interwebs on October 9th so try and get some work done between now and then. It looks like there is some Canada in there of course and a segment from Last Frontier Heliskiing up in northern BC.
We saw this on a designer website and had to post it. I mean, what heliskiing addict wouldn't want this in their house?! The model is to scale of the original copter and comes complete with a remote controlled motor that can be adjusted to three different speeds.
With this machine hanging in your bedroom, you would be sure to have dreams of heli skiing all summer.
The same stunning location with even more spectacular views!
Mica Heli Skiing has announced the construction of a brand new lodge. It will be located in the same amazing location but has been designed to maximized the mind-blowing views that their guests enjoy so much. We only have a few sneak preview images of the lodge but when we get some larger ones we will be sure to post them.
This new lodge is schedules for a grand opening in December 2012 (yes, this coming season!) We suggest checking in with Mica Heliskiing to see if you can get in on a grand opening week of skiing.
- 100% small group heliskiing - Four groups of four with two A-Stars - Additional single occupancy rooms - Panoramic dining experience - Roof top hot tubs - Separate bar and lounge - Dedicated fitness area - The same stunning location with even more spectacular views!
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!
