YOUR EXPERIENCE

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

Great Canadian Heli-skiing was born in 1988 when a guide and few heli-skiing guests wanted to re-capture the spirit and feeling of adventure lacking from operations whose only goal was to get bigger.

A Heli Guides Summer – Nigel Fisher Tree Faller

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. "GCH Guide Nigel Fisher tree falling in Clearwater BC
We hope you stay safe out there Nigel and can't wait to have you back to find those spaces in the trees!IMG_4870Tools of the Trade.
