We're you born for this? Get stoked, watch this video
Sit back, put this on full screen and crank the volume. If this doesn't get you stoked to go heliskiing, I don't know what will!
Located on the edge of Canada in BC's wild and vast North, Last Frontier Heliskiing boasts massive lines, deep snow, endless mountains and top notch Canadian hospitality.
Henrik Windstedt, Dave Treadway and Matilda Rapaport sample some epic Kootenay powder!
The winter of 2016 is one to remember when it comes to skiing in the Kootenays. After a 2015 season that everyone wants to forget, 2016 came back and totally redeemed winter for us! Fortunately, Henrik Windstedt, Dave Treadway and Matilda Rapaport planned a trip to the heart of powder country for a what looks like an epic trip.
The first half of this video features Valhalla Powdercats. One of the staples of the catskiing world here in BC. Using the latest drone tech combined with some beautiful and effortless skiers makes for some mouth watering viewing.
After a few days of endless powder at Valhalla, they moved a little north up the valley to Kaslo BC - home of Stellar Heliskiing. More snow and sun followed them there. You can really get a sense of the skiers appreciation for the mountains and nature in this part of the world.
Henrick, Dave and Matilda put together an amazing video with the Kootenay region as their co-star. Sadly, the world lost Matilda too soon in an avalanche this summer in Chile. She left a hole in the skiing world but has certainly left her mark as one of skiings best. As the film says, she will be forever missed.
Enjoy this featurette. Get stoked and remember that we are here for such a short while. Enjoy it to the fullest.
4 rad girls get a heli drop into the Sunrise Hut near Golden BC
Rachael Burks, Amie Engerbretson, Hadley Hammer and Jess Baker experience what looks to be an epic adventure in the backcountry near Golden BC. After a heli drop into the Sunrise Hut, they are completely off the grid. Freeing them up to immerse themselves in the environment in which they find themselves. 4 rad girls, 4 rad days of powder and eventually some sunshine. Like they say in the video, the mountains are going to do what they are going to do. You have to appreciate the experience.
Enjoy this short film. It's a good one.
Check the date on this. Early season is epic.
Jason, lead guide and owner of Stellar Heliskiing, likes to start teasing us as early as he can. Soon, he will be hiking up and eventually sledding into his tenure. He will be posting clips of him shredding every morsel of pow he can find. In the meantime, here is a short, but epic, teaser from skiing last January.
