heli ski blog christmas wish list from cmh staff

Dear Santa

All of us here at CMH Heli-Skiing have been very good girls and boys this year.  We have shown great respect for Mother Nature and the power that she holds here in the Columbia Mountains.  We have opened the doors of our lodges and our hearts to guests from around the world for both Heli-Skiing and Heli-Hiking. We have tuned skis, guided skiers, introduced the awesomeness of backcountry skiing to those who have only known resort-skiing to the best of our ability. In hopes that we have made it onto your 'Good' list, we have compiled our Christmas Wish List for you here:

James Vickers, Assistant Area Manager, CMH Gothics: Santa, I'm a big fan of the OR Guides Glove.  They are tough and durable though fit well and make it easy to work!

Katie Coccimiglio, Reservations Agent, CMH Heli-Skiing & Summer Adventures: Santa, I know that every year I wish for a heli-skiing trip but this year I have an extra special wish.  This year, I'm hoping for a spot on the K2 Demo Week at the Monashees.

Peter MacPherson, Assistant Area Manager, CMH Bugaboos: Black Diamond Factor ski boots are at the top of my list.

Carl Trescher, Assistant Area Manager, CMH Adamants: 1 Million Dollars. But Santa, if this is not possible then I would settle for a new Snowboard - possibly the Salomon Sick Stick or the Salomon Burner. I'm not picky one or the other would be fine. I can't wait to see them under the tree.!!!

Topher Donahue, writer, CMH's Heli-Ski Blog, skier and climber: I'd have to say Scarpa's Hurricane freeride ski boots for me please, Santa.

Rick Carswell, Food & Beverage Manager, CMH: In addition to a new knee brace so I can heliski this winter, I would really make good use of Jamie Oliver's cookbook, Jamie's Italy.

Steve Chambers, Area Manager, CMH Revelstoke: I've been having fun creating heliskiing videos over the last couple of years so I'd really like a small handheld HD camera that has great zoom features to compliment the Go-Pro.  Any suggestions from your elves?

Bob Krysak, Manger, CMH Retail: My feet get colder skiing now so a set of Ther-mic foot warmers with remote control would top my list please, St. Nick.

Me: I've been eyeing up a new pair of K2 Pay-Backs.  I'm anxious to try the new rocker technology and honestly, Santa, you can't expect me to ski another winter on those other things....

Santa, some of us will be at home for the holidays but many of us will be at one of the lodges for the holidays.  We are hosting Christmas in the Bugaboos and Christmas at the Cariboo Lodge this year.  We hope to see you there!  Milk, cookies and other yummy treats from our chefs will be waiting for you!

What about you?  What is on your wish list this holiday season?
