Heli Skiing

Heli Skiing

Bella Coola, British Columbia

Avid skiers and snowboarders will recognize the one critical feature of this photograph: the helicopter. That flying machine represents exclusive access to virgin snow, untouched slopes and pure, adrenaline-filled backcountry, white-powder adventure. If you’ve ever paused on your way down a ski run and looked back to see only one undulating line etched into snow-covered hillside -- a sensual “S” carved only by your downward movements -- then you know the thrill of heli-skiing. The lodge pictured here and others like it in snow-covered mountains around the world are the launch point of a thousand happy runs.
