Rocky Mountain Sherpas Visit Mica Heli

Rocky Mountain Sherpas are an award winning ski film production company. Their last film, “The Fine Line,” took top honors at several major ski film festivals when it debuted in 2009. The company is now working on its part ski film, part environmental film “All.I.Can.” The two year project has seen the crew visit many extreme and remote locals. While that is a pretty standard description of most any ski film, the Rocky Mountain Sherpas have taken it to a new level. Luxury mountain resorts

Less Than 80 Days

With each passing day, December 11th draws closer and closer. That is the day that Mica Heli Guides starts their first tour of the 2010-2011 skiing season. Heliskiing with Mica is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Their tenure stretches over more than 177,000 acres of the prime backcountry here in British Columbia, Canada. They are located on the western slopes of the Canadian Rockies just north of Revelstoke, and offer exclusively small-group tours. 

Relentless Freeze Festival 2010

This year marks the third year of the Relentless Freeze Festival. Though it was previously known as the London Freeze Festival, it remains the UK's largest snow sports and music event. Last year over 20,000 fans and enthusiasts showed up at the Battersea Power Station for quite a show. For the snowboards, there will be the LG Big Air competition, which is also an FIS World Cup event. The skiers will be competing in the International Big Air Event. The festival will run from October 29th through the 31st.

Summit NZ Freeheel Challenge

As we here in beautiful British Columbia await the arrival of our first serious snowfall, the folks down south in New Zealand are already enjoying theirs. This coming weekend, the Summit NZ Freeheel Challenge will be taking place there. This is a competition for telemarkers and ski tourers, so a different set of skiing skills will be on display than what B.C. typically sees.
 

The Big Ones Are Biting

Revelstoke, British Columbia is a fair-sized ski town set on the picturesque slopes of the Canadian Rockies. Once the snow starts falling, visitors from all around the world descend on Revelstoke for the amazing heliskiing opportunities here. But when the snow isn't falling, there is still plenty to do. Fishing is one of the more popular diversions during the summer time. It is popular because of all the different opportunities to fish for your favorite species. Fly-fishing creates for numerous chances to visit remote mountain lakes.

Relaxing Revelstoke Style

Revelstoke, British Columbia is a very unique town. There are quite a number of different things to do here, no matter the season. While people might dismiss it at first glance as just another small B.C. ski town, they would certainly be foolish to do so. During the summer there is plenty of great hiking and mountain biking, as well as fishing, golf and whitewater rafting. There are also numerous heritage and cultural sites to explore in the area too.

Wonders of Winter Heliskiing

Set along the western slopes of the Canadian Rockies, and surrounded by the Selkirk and Monashee ranges, the tenure of Mica Heli Guides is the idyllic mountain paradise. While most people choose to visit their tenure for the downhill skiing, there is also a ski touring option for those that aren't necessarily looking for a full on adrenaline rush. By touring with the helicopter of Mica, you get to explore parts of the backcountry that would normally require overnight stays in the wilderness and a heavy pack.
