A quick year in review from The Heli-Ski Blog!  Our 5 most-read posts of 2010:

1) 5 Best Ski Movies

Mark Piquette summarizes his top 5 ski movies of all time.  Not Warren Miller/ Matchstick Productions ski movies, but Hollywood blockbusters featuring sick skiing.

2) Avalanche Perspective from a Heli-Ski Guru

Topher Donahue asked Colani Bezzola, the Mountain Safety Manager for CMH and a 36-year veteran heli-ski guide, to share some insights into the system CMH uses to keep us safe while heliskiing out there.

3) Soft Shell vs. Hard Shell for skiing in the backcountry

Topher and Lilla Molnar, one of CMH Heli-Skiing's fully certified mountain guides, discuss the merits of hard shell and soft shell in varying backcountry conditions.

4) Gothics Film Shoot: Pillow Lines, Back Flips and Corked 540's

We had the unique pleasure of hosting the Warren Miller Entertainment crew at the Gothics Lodge for the filming of their 61st film Wintervention.  While on scene, Mark Piquette posted this quick video blog that we love.

5) Rocker Ski Technology: Changing the Heli-Ski Experience

Aaron Ambuske, VP Global Product Development for K2 Skis, gave CMH the skinny on how adding rocker to skis has pushed skiing forward.
