CMH Heli-Skiing’s Colorado Winter Kickoff in 2 weeks!

powderIt was such a blow out last year, that we’re doing it again!

On September 26, 2013 at 7:00 PM, CMH Heli-Skiing and the Colorado ski community will descend on Battery 621 in Denver for the Colorado WINTER KICK-OFF!

Besides all you Front Range powder hounds to fuel the stoke, a few famous cold smoke personalities will be there to lead the charge. CMH Ski Guides will be hanging out in the CMH Guide Zone, answering questions (and generally making us all wish we lived in Revelstoke).

Guest speakers include:
The always informative and entertaining Joel Gratz. Joel is the Colorado meteorologist who seems to have cracked the code to reveal weather forecasts that really work for snow riders. Last I heard he was trying to figure out what La Nada  (when there is no La Niña or El Niño) means for both Colorado and British Columbia snowfall.

The legend himself - Chris Davenport. Chris really needs no introduction to most of us, but in case you’ve been living in the Sahara for the last 15 years, Chris is a two-time world champion who also skied all 54 of Colorado’s 14,000-foot mountains in 12 months.  Skiing one of them is a worthy achievement, but a little known fact of Chris’ blitz of the 14ers is that he didn’t just ski them all, he also did several first descents in the process and often chose more difficult lines than the traditional ski routes off the peaks.

Besides just getting fired up for winter, winning door prizes, and a chance to sign up for a heli-trip with Chris Davenport, we will also get a chance to view the new CMH visual treat, Take Flight.

A donation of $5, with proceeds going to the CAIC (Colorado Avalanche Information Center) will be accepted at the door.
