It would seem that Old Man Winter is slowly taking over the BC interior. I’ve received photos from almost every CMH Heli-Ski area this week and it is starting to look familiar again to our skiers and boarders. The flowers are gone. No more green grass. Lots and lots of white space! If you are a CMH Kootenay skiier, this pic here likely looks more familiar to you now than it would have 6 weeks ago!
It also means wrapping up the maintenance projects. Putting away the paint cans and putting the finishing touches on the long list of things to do to get the lodges ready to receive guests again.
Staff has been hired, training sessions are planned, pre-season meetings have been scheduled, the food (and wine!) has been sent up to the lodges and the shops are almost set up.
How many days until you climb into a 212?
And how many of you are looking ahead to Heli-Skiing and Heli-Boarding in 2011already? Next Thursday, November 12 marks the start of our 2011 selling season. Yes, that’s right. For those of you after specific weeks and lodges, you need to pick up the phone at 8:30AM MST on November 12.
I asked CMH Reservations Manager, Nicole Koester if she has any tips for skiers and boarders for November 12. Besides the obvious of have your credit card ready, as a deposit is due at the time of booking, her number one piece of advice – have more than once choice of dates to avoid disappointment.
So it’s time to start working on your Heli-Ski & Heli-Boarding Wish List for 2011. Before you do, you’ll need to download the 2011 CMH pricelist.
