Total Heliski’s clients are naturally going to benefit immensely from a new innovation in snow safety. (Aligned with our focus on technology and innovation at our Summit last month.)
Total Heliski CEO, Hayley had the pleasure (or was it pain?) of attending the world’s largest trade show in January in Las Vegas – The Consumer Electronics Show. If last year was the year of the wearable sensor, this year was certainly the year of the Drone. And not just any old fly up and around Drone. No, these days, you can be your own Warren Miller movie star and order your own drone to follow you by radio bracelet and film your every stellar powder turn, from different angles. The Hexo was the best drone we found there.
Backcountry, the most talked about category in snow sports is also close to our hearts at Total Heliski. Our company was born from the search for adventure away from busy groomed runs of ski resorts. Whether by helicopter drop onto virgin snow, or earning your turns via hiking and skinning to ride terrain, you’ll need to be equipped with the essentials.
Skiing or boarding a slope with confidence requires good vision of the slope. As we might remember from school science lessons, the visible light spectrum, makes up the familiar colors of the rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet. Light colour is dependent on wavelength, and in overcast or snowy conditions, an overload of blue light bounces around to create what skiers call "flat light."
