The Crew: Friends Don’t Let Friends Heli-ski Alone
Back in the day, it was BMX bikes, the neighbourhood woodlot, and a grocery bag tied to the handlebars full of dime store candies and what you stole from the fridge. You and your best buds headed out for a wild adventure, returning home with stories of near misses, face plants, and big air. Knees scraped and dirt ground into your hair, you returned home to mom for an afternoon snack like nothing mattered. Fast forward a few decades and now you and your buddies are at it again. Except this time you have a helicopter.
Jeff, Spike, Adam and Michael have come here to Great Canadian for their first time, and they are embarking on an adventure of a lifetime! The crew keeps us on our toes, from late night jam sessions to on-mountain shenanigans (SOMEONE earned a roast from lead guide G.G. at dinner last night, but that's a story for another time...).

Now the thing about the mountains is that they never change. The neighbourhood woodlot just gets bigger. The trees grow, the lines you drop into get steeper as your skills progress, and the stories get bigger too.
You and your friends are stepping into your bindings and stepping back in time with us to a place where all that matters is the feeling of sliding on snow, of total mastery, of complete and total freedom and fun in the mountains. There is no time, no place you have to be except HERE, right now. That's why friends don't let friends heli-ski alone. Its just too good a time to miss!
