5 Phat Skiing Photos - The Face Shot


After John Entwistle’s heartbreaker April Fools joke - where he lured us in with promises of the “Best Heliski Photos. Ever.” and then left us with perhaps the least inspiring collection of skiing pictures ever published - I had to balance things out and put together these five face shots from the winter of 2010/2011 in honor of just how sweet it really is riding deep powder with CMH Heliskiing.

In the process of making these five ski photos I lost and cracked lenses, filled my camera with snow a hundred times, and took a thousand lousy pictures - but I'm not complaining.

Any heliskiers or snowboarders out there have a good story to share about the powder manna of the 2010/2011 CMH Ski Season?  About how many face shots you got in a row?  About how deep it really was?


I loved these photos that you published on twitter,Thanks! I have a new blog site and would greatly love to exchange links. Someday when the cash flow improves again I will come to Canada and heliski, this has beed my dream for years.

I love the smile shot! With all the face protection you can find there's still a huge powder smile in her eyes - fantastic!

An epic season! One of the best winters I've had in 16 years with CMH and it was still snowing when we wrapped up the winter in Revelstoke...

I really liked 'The Cariboos-Flavoured Face Shot' A classic shot which I cam imagine seeing hung on my wall. With these great skiing photos it may be worth offering them for sale.
