you have to love a clientele that takes a near death experience and puts it behind them and goes right back at it. Skiers pay alot of money, they sure dont want to lose that vertical footage.

Heliskiing bites again, every year.......    Same Place had a roll over in 2017.

 

It always surprises me come fire season, and all the stories of bade strikes, hard landings, roll overs come out yet I never seem to hear of them.  I always wanted to heli ski,  and that was my first exposure to helicopters at a young age,.....now, I don’t think so, especially for 600 bucks a day if your lucky.
