C'est quoi

Toutes les opérations de ski héliporté garantissent un certain nombre de mètres verticaux. Chez Great Canadian, nous offrons une bonne quantité de vertical (p.ex. 30,500 m/100,000pi pour un séjour d'une semaine).

Great Canadian Heli-Skiing On TV!

Affiché par & classé dans Heliskiing.

The Ride Guide, the ski and snowboard TV show that is shown in 60 countries and 60 million households paid us a visit in January in order to film the amazing conditions and terrain in our vast tenure.

The show features local Golden boy Justin Baun and Leah Evans from Rossland, C.-B.. In the summer Justin fights fires and in winter he rides for the Ride Guide. Leah competes in international free-skiing competitions and manages her own company: www.girlsdoski.com. Girls Do Ski offers 2 day camps for women interested in improving their skiing and who want to learn to ski the whole mountain, not just the groomers. Its a perfect way to warm up for heli-skiing! For a short article on the trip go here.

You can watch the 2 part episode on notre page Facebook (sign up and become a GCH fan!) or on our YouTube channel.

“I just let my skis guide me,” says Canadian big-mountain skier Leah Evans of threading through pine, hemlock, and cedar trees while backcountry skiing Rogers Pass outside of Golden, Colombie-Britannique. “I grew up tree skiing at Red Mountain Resort, so I’m very comfortable navigating in the trees,” says Evans, who started Girls Do Ski, an initiative to get more young women on the slopes with special ski camps. Her next competition is the International Freeskiers Association World Tour, which kicks off in January 2012 from her home turf in nearby Revelstoke.

Getting the Shot
“I’m a big fan of aerial perspectives and tree skiing—so I combined the two,” says photographer Jordan Manley. While photographing for Great Canadian Héli-Ski, an operator located between Golden and Revelstoke, Manley captured the unusual perspective. “It isn’t very common to get a view of tree skiing from just above the canopy. We took the doors off the helicopter and strapped in.” The photo was taken using a Nikon D3s and a Nikkor 17-35, f/2.8 lens.
