A Heli Guides Summer – Nigel Fisher Tree Faller

Posted by & filed under Newsletter, Summer at the Lodge.

NigelYou might think that heli-ski guides take the summers to relax.  Maybe catch up on their reading list, sip lemonade in the sun and dream about the powder days of winter.

Tell that to guide Nigel Fisher and he’d likely laugh, with a plume of dust and soot falling off his shoulders.

 

Nigel has been working hard long days in Clearwater, BC (430 km from Golden) as a danger tree faller, helping in the effort to fight back the forest fires that have been raging in British Columbia.  He’s traded in the red guiding Gore-Tex for safety-orange fire gear, and we managed to catch up with him and find out how his summer is going.

“Great Canadian Heli Skiing is hella-fun, fire is more of a hellish fun, both require helicopters.  Summer is hot and dry, be glad winter is not. Still looking for the spaces in between the trees no matter the season. ”

We hope you stay safe out there Nigel and can’t wait to have you back to find those spaces in the trees!
