Take Flight with CMH Heli-Skiing

  
  
  

We're ready.  Are you?  That's right.  The CMH Heli-Skiing season starts in 70 days and we are all gazing longingly at skis and boards in the garage, debating new ski pants, scoping out new touring gear.  At the CMH lodges there are new runs being developed, walls getting repainted and storerooms getting stocked as we gear up for another great season of skiing and socializing with new and old friends.

This time of year also means we're hitting the road to get you stoked for the season.  Our team leaves tomorrow for our first event of the fall season in Denver, CO.  Here's where you can find us this fall, with more cities and dates to be announced:

Denver, CO     September 26    Battery 621     RSVP Here

Washington, DC  October 9      US Navy Memorial   RSVP Here

Seattle, WA    November 5       evo, in partnership with K2    RSVP TBA

We hope to see you out there, and here's a little glimpse at the fun and excitement we'll be sharing along the way!

CMH Heli-Skiing’s Colorado Winter Kickoff in 2 weeks!

  
  
  

powderIt was such a blow out last year, that we’re doing it again!

On September 26, 2013 at 7:00 PM, CMH Heli-Skiing and the Colorado ski community will descend on Battery 621 in Denver for the Colorado WINTER KICK-OFF!

Besides all you Front Range powder hounds to fuel the stoke, a few famous cold smoke personalities will be there to lead the charge. CMH Ski Guides will be hanging out in the CMH Guide Zone, answering questions (and generally making us all wish we lived in Revelstoke).

Guest speakers include:
The always informative and entertaining Joel Gratz. Joel is the Colorado meteorologist who seems to have cracked the code to reveal weather forecasts that really work for snow riders. Last I heard he was trying to figure out what La Nada  (when there is no La Niña or El Niño) means for both Colorado and British Columbia snowfall.

The legend himself - Chris Davenport. Chris really needs no introduction to most of us, but in case you’ve been living in the Sahara for the last 15 years, Chris is a two-time world champion who also skied all 54 of Colorado’s 14,000-foot mountains in 12 months.  Skiing one of them is a worthy achievement, but a little known fact of Chris’ blitz of the 14ers is that he didn’t just ski them all, he also did several first descents in the process and often chose more difficult lines than the traditional ski routes off the peaks.

Besides just getting fired up for winter, winning door prizes, and a chance to sign up for a heli-trip with Chris Davenport, we will also get a chance to view the new CMH visual treat, Take Flight.

A donation of $5, with proceeds going to the CAIC (Colorado Avalanche Information Center) will be accepted at the door.

Where:
Battery 621
621 Kalamath Street
Denver, Colorado 80204

When:
Thursday, September 26, 2013
7:00 PM - 9:30 PM

Here’s the official Online registration for this event. RSVP by Monday, September 23. See you there!

CMH Heli-Skiing Set to Take on Steamboat & Squaw Valley

  
  
  

Afraid that you'll have nothing to look forward to after you've rung in the New Year?  Fear not, skiing friends. CMH Heli-Skiing is teaming up with our friends at Surefoot to offer on-hill ski days in both Steamboat and Squaw Valley, followed by some apres-ski fun in-store.  Ski with the CMH team and you'll have all day to ask them questions about Heli-Skiing in BC,Canada.  The most common question we are asked is "Am I good enough to Heli-Ski?" and a day with the team on your local hill will give one of our senior heli-ski guides a chance to evaluate your skiing and give you a definitive yes or no.
