Ski Movie: Heli-Skiing in the Cariboos and Twins

Posted by Mark Piquette on Feb 21, 2011 8:30:00 AM

It's time for another vintage ski movie installment from Dick Barrymore. In the last post we checked out the start of CMH and the building of the Bugaboos. This segment covers the building of the Cariboos Lodge. Also, in honor of Andy Mahre coming back to film another Warren Miller segment in the Monashees, this segment features his dad, Steve, and Uncle, Phil, skiing with us back in the day.  Tyler Ceccanti from the K2 Factory team will be skiing as well for the upcoming film shot.

Watching the Mahre brothers ski you realize a couple of things. One, ski racers, no matter what era, just can flat out ski. Two, DNA sort of can see where Andy Mahre gets his skiing chops.

So check out the movie. Enjoy the classic soundtrack and classic ski fashion.
