The Upside Down Fan by Raffaele Iannello
We saw this on a designer website and had to post it. I mean, what heliskiing addict wouldn't want this in their house?! The model is to scale of the original copter and comes complete with a remote controlled motor that can be adjusted to three different speeds.
With this machine hanging in your bedroom, you would be sure to have dreams of heli skiing all summer.

It has a helicopter in it, had to post it.
Deep DEEP powder skiing with James Heim
This video popped up on our radar this morning and we saw that there is a short shot of a helicopter in it. We don't know which operator but we figured that since we saw the chopper that was all we needed to post it! This is a heli-centred website afterall.
We apologize up front because the powder shots in this little video will ruin your day if you are sitting in an office! Tell ya what, check out our list of operators here, give one a call and book a trip. There has been a few storm cycles roll through lately and we are expecting an epic March. Come on now...pick up that phone, fake an illness and get out of the office!
La Nina, baby come back!
Here is a little look back at some La Nina powder from up at Snowwater last season. In January 2011, Zack Giffin and Callum Pettit headed up for a quick trip to Snowwater Heliskiing outside of Nelson BC. They took along photographer Grant Gunderson and tore up the place for a few days. Here is some great footage of the nice pillow lines one could expect at Snowwater this season...
Word on the street is that the snow is piling up at Snowwater and they will be all fired up for another La Nina pounding! They even put a little extra work in this early season and got their back-up cat roads into Peak 2 which is a first from what we hear.
For now, enjoy the video, check out Snowwater's availability, book a trip, and then just try to get some work done!
