Heli-Ski Guides: On Both Sides of the Lens

Posted by John Entwistle on Feb 1, 2012 3:28:00 PM

Well, it is February 1st. So, if I post pictures only from January 2012, they are technically the best photos from the year... Right? Well, I will go with it anyways.

As I was going through out "best of" gallery for January, there were so many pictures that could have made a best of list! So, I decided to break it down into a category: Guide Photos. Now, everyone loves seeing a skier in a bright orange jacket blasting through blower pow, but you will notice that all but one of these pictures is missing that. Each of the following pictures was taken by one of our guides across 4 different heli-ski areas, with the Bugaboos getting the double shout out. Here they are, in no particular order.


CMH Bugaboos:

Photographer, Dani Lowenstein

Skier, Lianne Marquis

Few people know that Lianne is actually on telemark skis here. But honestly, after the snow January brought, I would believe it either way...

The Selkirk Mountains near the Rogers Pass make for a nice back drop at the end of the day.

Burnt forrest, fisheye lens, deep pow... Can it get any better?

CMH Bobbie Burns

Photographer: Carl Trescher

Skier: Marty Schaffer

Marty claims this is him... So we'll give him credit for taste testing the snow in the Bobbie Burns

CMH Bugaboos

Photographer: Andrew Wexler

Skier: Sepp Hochlahner

Sepp proves just how light and fluffy the snow is in the Bugaboos. He is also missing the top half of his tuque...
