Why More Skiers Should Consider Heli Skiing by Mike WelchYou love skiing.  You live for the days you spend skiing at your local resort,  for ski vacations or for ripping up the backcountry with your friends every weekend.  Sitting at your office, or in your car dealing with traffic everyday, you find your mind drifting to your last ski day or that ski movie you watched recently. 

Face it.  You're dealing with an addiction

There is no cure. You simply need more skiing. But not just any skiing.  You need Heli-Skiing.  Get yourself deep into the heart of the Columbia Mountain Range for some Heli-Skiing in BC, Canada!

Think you can't handle it?  You're not alone.  Heli-Skiing has this mystical aura surrounding it and sadly many capable skiers discount the idea based on these myths.  So I've pulled together a few resources to help you see why more skiers should consider heliskiing:
