We Brought a Three Year Old Heli-Skiing.. Why That Matters

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

When we had the chance to give a young tot of three years his first heli-skiing experience, you’re probably not surprised to hear that we had to say YES.

You see there is a certain attitude that Dave Treadway has with parenting that we just can’t help but love.  Some might see heli skiing as a risky move at such a young age, but for Dave and his son Kasper, “I was more comfortable in this environment then crossing a street in the city with him”.

There is a great joy in sharing these passions with not just friends, but family too, and we love seeing the new generation coming out with their parents. This can also lead to some pretty significant moments for parents, like when previous guest Peter brought his son Blake heli-skiing for the first time.  “Nobody else in my family can understand this.  The first time I took Blake heli-skiing he was an intermediate snowboarder with no powder experience. It was not an easy first experience, [but here we are again]. You’re creating memories.  Unbelievable memories.”

Our operation has always been family friendly, and guest safety is #1 with a record to back that up, so you are in safe hands.  The spirit of the #gchbestdayever is alive and well, no matter your age.  See for yourself:
