IF OUR GROUPS WERE ANY SMALLER, YOU'D BE FLYING THE HELICOPTER.

3 Hottest Ski Gear Trends for 2017

What a time to be alive! The latest and greatest in ski gear technology just gets better, sleeker and smarter.  The upcoming winter gear is no exception.  We're chomping at the bit to get our hands on these.  And better yet, these will be for sale at our retail store in Heather Mountain Lodge!  Here's the top 3 trends we can't wait to play with:Retail Therapy1. GoPro Hero 5 and Hero 5 Session
Those who have visited our terrain know that those views are worth sharing.  The latest way to capture those deep turns in the trees or the expansive glacier views is with the latest action camera, the GoPro Hero 5 Black or Hero 5 Session.  These bad boys feature exciting updates like voice control in seven languages (we won't judge you for talking to your camera, but your friends might), 4k video resolution at 30 frames per second, and a cloud service that GoPro has developed to upload your video into the cloud. No doubt these will be an amazing addition to your season!
2. Smith ChromaPop Lenses
Visuals are crucial when you are picking the freshest lines.  The Smith ChromaPop Lens enhances visual clarity, provides greater definition, and better reveals natural color in a full range of weather conditions wherever you are on the mountain. These lenses cut out the colour-clutter for your brain by filtering light in two specific wavelenghths (yay science!).  The clarity you get will be a sharper, and a faster visual range for your brain to register during use.  We're not saying these lenses will give you superpowers... but it's the closest you might get to x-ray vision!
3. Arcteryx Winter Lookbook
Featuring imagery from one of the closest towns to our lodge, Revelstoke BC, Arc'teryx has a new lookbook that is sure to inspire some of our heli-ski wear.  New bright colours like "Fennel" or "Magma" are sure to keep you seen as you hurdle down that pillow field.  With lighter fabrics that still hold warmth, everything from jackets to midlayers to pants will keep you comfortable for all those #unlimitedvertical runs.*Bonus: the look book itself features friend of Great Canadian Heli-Skiing, Christina Lustenberger and our backyard, Rogers Pass.
