The Best Ski Photos of the 2011/12 Heli-Ski Season

Posted by Jane Carswell on May 25, 2012 2:38:00 PM

After a season of unbelievable skiing and riding and awesome snowfall, we're itching for a summer of great climbing, hiking and via-feratte-ing in the Columbia Mountains of western Canada.  But before we get to all that, let's take a moment to reflect on the great ski photos our guides, guests and staff submitted from the CMH Heli-Skiing 2011/12 season.

We've compiled a full on-line gallery of ski images to amuse you, but wanted to single out a few of the more spectacular images from the past heli-ski season to keep your dreams alive until the snow flies this coming fall. 

Skiers and riders at CMH Monashees reveled in the fresh powder all winter long:

The Bobbie Burns team had epic skiing conditions this winter and both Bruce Howatt and Carl Tresher shared their perspectives on the Bobbie Burns Facebook page (if you're not a fan, you should be!)

Further south in the Bugaboos, the birthplace of Heli-Skiing, our 407 pilot, Alex Edwards, used his keen eye to capture the great skiing there:

This is how CMH Galena began their season in mid-December, 2011:

The team down at CMH Kootenay played host to the K2 Skis design team and hosted 3 demo sessions in March with CMH guests skiing on protype skis and providing feedback to the designers:

How about you?  We'd love it if you share your best skiing photos from the past season on our Facebook page.  We've been known to randomly mail gifts to people who post photos on our page. Wink, wink.
