Born for This: Rudi and Jeff Gertsch of Purcell Heli-Skiing

The father-son duo have powder in their blood

Rudi Gertsch is a pioneer. His son Jeff is the legacy. Rudi emigrated from Switzerland in the 1970s and began guiding in Canada. Purcell Heliskiing outside of Golden BC has been his home where he has led countless groups to epic lines and mind blowing vistas. It is also the place he raised his son Jeff. Jeff naturally has picked up the family business. A guide himself, Jeff is carrying on the legacy that his Dad Rudi began all those decades ago.
