Heli Tour

Here’s a little video segment from a “one lift heli tour” trip a few weeks ago.  The trip was a birthday present for me (Thanks Reba!!).  The deal is that the heli takes you up and drops you off at a high point somewhere.  You spend the day backcountry touring and then ski down to a pickup location somewhere on the valley floor at the end of the day.

Having not had any significant snowfall for at least a month, I was really looking forward to flying in the bird, but not really looking forward to the ski conditions that I expected to find.  Bozo and Sun Valley Heli Ski wasted no time in showing me that my expectations were too low and that good snow always exists.

  1. That sure looks like a blast!

    So much terrain in a fantastic winter landscape, so many things to explore & play on.
    Nice work on the vid, it’s long but has great tunes & tells a great story.

    Fun with friends in nature, well that’s just good living.

    • Thanks Dave! Yeah, i’m not very good at brevity in my videos. It’s mostly a selfish tendency to want to relive the whole day because it was all so much fun. It’s hard for me to edit things out and cut it down to something a bit more manageable for the average viewer!
      Fun with friends in nature is one of the best pursuits in life!

    I had a heli trip in Whistler back in ’07. It was amazing.

    This winter has been pretty good. While I haven’t been out as much as you (about a dozen days) all but one day was fresh powder. Culminating with a foot of fresh last Friday for my birthday. Victory!
