As back country adventures gains mass market appeal, ski makers are stepping up on their ranges of equipment for the back country… Extending beyond touring skis to offer integrated solutions for the back country. We particularly like where K2 are going with their new Rescue Shovel.
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.
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."
You’ve had heli skiing/boarding on your bucket list for years? Subscribed to Total Heliski’s newsletter, done some web scouring of locations, have watched countless You Tube videos, think you’ve been financially responsible and can just about justify a heli trip of a lifetime. But how do you actually pull the trigger? Here’s the three easy steps:
For our readers in the UK, you all know how much Total Heliski love a party. Our previous Total Heliski Shows are very well attended. Well, we couldn’t help but make a little splash with our arrival over here in the US of A. We are inviting existing and budding heliskiers and boarders to our upcoming event.
The 2012 London Olympic Games have shown the world the efforts some people make to achieve perfection. As the organisers anticipated, it’s been a truly inspirational spectacle for all of us to appreciate and absorb.
At Total Heliski, we believe applying similar aims of perfection to your heli ski holiday this winter can easily be achieved (attaining the physical athleticism perhaps a little more difficult).
Are you wondering where your next (or first) big heli ski experience is going to be? The answer could be in – wait for it – the weather channel! Seriously! Ocean currents and surface temperatures could really spice up your heli skiing trip this season. This is all about the phenomena called La Niña of course.
