Heliskiing – Safety First

Every skier and snowboarder loves that feeling of fresh powder beneath them. The semi-weightless sensation as you flow down the mountain is so enjoyable, that we mindlessly start to move into the backcountry, looking for those perfect tracks. One of the more popular ways to access the backcountry is with a helicopter. While heliskiing the backcountry is perfectly safe, you can't just charge through it any which way you want, as you might do at your local resort.

Heliskiing and Inclement Weather

Going into the backcountry with the aid of a helicopter is one of the greatest inventions in the history of skiing. It is certainly the premier way to get truly spectacular lines. However, the surest way to have a heliskiing vacation ruined is if the weather turns so bad that the helicopter can’t fly you into the backcountry. This is one of the most important factors to consider when booking your next vacation. Also to avoid that unfortunate problem, be sure to book your adventure with Mica Heli Guides, located in Revelstoke, British Columbia.

Hiking The Highlands Of Revelstoke

Revelstoke, British Columbia is a world-renowned destination for skiing and snowboarding. Though the snow may have retreated to the upper reaches of the Selkirk, Monashee, and the Canadian Rockies, that doesn't mean there’s nothing left to do on these spectacular slopes. Hiking the area around Revelstoke is just as epic as the skiing. Hiking trails abound here, so you can be sure there is something for everyone. There are a multitude of other summer activities as well here in Revelstoke.

Dreaming Of White Champagne Powder

We've now moved on to August, the halfway month between the beginning and end of the ski season. The good news is that there is less time to wait (roughly four months and counting). The bad news is that it is still summer and the only snow visible is away on the tippy tops of the mountains. Other than visiting the Southern Hemisphere, or really high mountains, the only way to find the snow you crave is in your dreams. Canada Heliskiing

The Beauty Of A First Descent

Ask anyone where to go for great skiing or snowboarding, and you're more than likely to hear how spectacular the Canadian Rockies are.

Touring Revelstoke's Spectacular Mountains
