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.

How far would you go for a dream?

Do you possess an insatiable adventurous spirit? Is your horizon an ever-moving objective? There are some people out there who pursue their passion with tenacity and never stop exploring.

Photograph from the Lindemann's collection.[/caption]The Lindemann family, guests here at Great Canadian Heli-skiing this week, chased their dream of heli-skiing and ultimate freedom in the mountains all the way from Essen, Germany to the Selkirk and Purcell Mountains in B.C. "In Austria you cannot ski in the trees," says Bernhard Lindemann, a skier with 38 seasons of skiing under his belt. And then he smiles: "Here there is total freedom." [caption id="attachment_1538" align="aligncenter" width="640"]Bernhard Shreds the Gnar Bernhard Shreds the Gnar[/caption]At home in Germany Bernhard teaches mathematics and computer science in a local highschool. This trip was the family's first heli-ski trip and a dream come true. Bernhard came with his two sons, Marius and Sebastian.[caption id="attachment_1545" align="aligncenter" width="640"]Bernhard and youngest son Marius contemplating the next pitch.

Sebastian has completed his studies and is working as an engineer. At 28 years old he has over two decades of skiing under his belt. Quiet and determined, the three have shredded nonstop since arriving here at Great Canadian. [caption id="attachment_1544" align="aligncenter" width="622"]Sebastian loving the trees!

Cheers to Bernhard, Sebastian, and Marius for inspiring us all to keep on searching for our dreams and to live them!
