Every summer, guides of Great Canadian Heli-Skiing head to the backcountry to make sure our heli programs run smoother than a glacier run on a bluebird day. That means anything from brush clearing, scoping out new heli pads to retrieving runaway skis, poles, or snowboards.
In our most recent round of backcountry maintenance, lead guide Rob found himself in his element: alone with a thermos of coffee, a sandwich and a stylish hat on top of a mountain range.
Rob was checking in on our radio repeater, which rests in between the Spinster and Cupola terrain zones. The repeater is a crucial part of Great Canadian’s communications, keeping everyone loud and clear as the groups check in with each other.
