The Reviews Are In And Eagle Pass Heliskiing needs to be on your bucket-list

When we go on a trip we always work the experience up in our minds eye first before the plane even leaves the ground. lets face it our thoughts are the reason we book trips to begin with. What is special about this process is when the place you visit exceeds your expectations it become a memory that will last a lifetime....

Heliboarding with Eagle Pass Heliskiing this past Jan 2017 was just that a very special and unique exsprience that now belongs to everyone in our group.  We stayed at the old Eagle Pass Lodge due to it not being completed in time for our arrival period, however the lodge we did stay at was really beautiful on a nice property. However if you book you will be staying at the brand new Lodge just built for you.

The Staff was incredible and very accommodating. When we first arrived at the lodge we we created by friendly faces who showed us to our accommodations where we had a gift waiting on our pillows. a nice case for Ski or Snowboard googles and a portable battery charger with the Eagle Pass Logo on it!

When we walked out into the living area the gormet chefs were hard at work preparing a special and unique dinner as they cook three meals a day for guest. We also had the best breakfast the next morning after taking a stretching class at 6:30 AM  we ate good and prepared for our day of EPIC riding with one the best Heliboarding operation in BC

On the first day we leave the lodge in a van to be taken to the Eagle Pass tenure area. We waited with our guide Chevy for our turn and than we were up next. We prepared for the incoming Helicopter piloted by Kevin Duff who dropped from the sky like an Eagle to swoop us up fore the ride the another place that would again be better then what I imaged it to be  while at home before trip.

The first day a person in our party lost their glasses on one of or runs. When we got back to the Lodge I never in my life seen so many people trying to help us located an eye glass doctor in the nearest towns. Some towns were not so near however we did located one right in Revelstoke who was open late on a Sat afternoon. He got contacts and we were on our way to relaxing in the Jacuzzi and Sauna then eating and getting ready for a good night and great Sunday Morning Floating on snow.

Sunday morning  arrived and it was our turn to fly from the lodge's front door to our first run of the day. This day was fully of surprises. the wind blow snow all over the place making it a great powder day, we found a spot that was incredible wide with deep  powder on the top and trees on the bottom that were just perfect in spacing and provided the perfect spot to ride..

We got a few reviews on camera with two clients of Eagle Pass Heliskiing the First one is from Andreas from Germany who for the last six years has been spending lots of time heliskiing with Eagle Pass and meets with his group that he meet while at Eagle Pass years ago...

Then we spoke with Mike about his group and why they Heliski BC with Eagle Pass and what keeps them coming back.

Hiring a Helicoptor that is made for a small group like we had that only holds four riders a guide and Pilot is something very special don't pass it up. You don't have to go in a group of four to do this you can come from 1-3 person to be match up with a single or fill all four seats with your group.

We came across this opportunity from working with Heliski Holiday a heliski/heliboard adviser for all of Canada British Columbia and International Heli Operators. If you are considering a heli holiday this is definitely the way to go.Finding a heli ski operator in British Columbia Canada that ticks all your boxes can be an overwhelming challenge. From a solid blue to double black rider, knowing your options, understanding each of operators are first steps in making an informed decision.

By working as a blogger, specializing in snowboarding, Nina's connections in the heliskiing industry opened the door for us to experience world-class snowboarding with Eagle Pass Heliskiing The Eagle Pass Lodge is centred in the Monashee Mountain Range just 8 km (5 miles) or approximately 10 minutes west of Revelstoke, British Columbia Our group of 4 will be spending Jan 28th and 29th riding and writing, creating great content for Heliski Holiday, our blogs and social media sites.

New for this year with Eagle Pass Helisking is there new state of the art Lodge that is currently being built. Originally we were set to stay there, however the lodge is about three weeks behind schedule at this point.

The new Eagle Pass lodge will be available for your group to stay at if you are interested in booking with them. Read More...

To end of our BC boarding holiday we will be checking out Silver Star Mountain Resort, BC's 3rd largest mountain resort and only 1.5 hours south-west of Revelstoke. The word is the backside of the mountain offers 1900 acres of steep, black and double-black diamond runs.

The Canyons Resort In Park City Utah Wow!!!

Below is a picture of waist deep snow angels we shoot while at The Canyons Resort in Park City Utah

Greatest snow on earth

A bunch of my family friends and I went to the canyons in Utah. We have been a lot of different places and the snow out in Utah was just out of this world. I will never forget that time when we were snowboarding in waist deep powder. We where there the day before as well.The waist deep powder all fell in that canyon overnight. and this snow was so dry it blew away out of your hands like baby powder. Another thing I noticed is the lack of the wind but I am definitely not complaining and on that week long trip no one else did either and here are a couple snow angels we left behind in Utah.

Best powder on earth

Above is a picture of a high peak at The Canyons in park city Utah.

Shawn White smart business man or sellout?

I think that it may be that he is smart lets face it he cant ride forever. the only problem I see is Target it would have been nice to keep in the Board shops. The big picture is that good may come in the form of gaining more kids into the sports that Shawn loves. It Brings the sports or the hope of those sport where it has never been before on the worldstage of Target this means big sales and incresed ridership good news all around. here are other artical on this topic from snowboarding

Here are coments to the post in snowboarding the links is above and the comments are below

(1) Katherine says:
It tells you something about snowboarding culture that this is considered selling out when a basketball player would see it as business as usual. It’s nice to think that not everything is for sale. What a great sport!

July 31, 2008 at 1:57 pm(2) Kallie says:
Shaun White has been blessed with athletic ability to spare, and hair that’s brighter than any celebrity’s this side of Ronald McDonald.

He’s a marketer’s dream, and I think he should cash in while he can. He won’t be able to compete forever. Someday, he’ll just be a name on a Nintendo game…

August 6, 2008 at 10:36 pm(3) Mike D. says:
It’s funny on one side of the page Shaun White is getting blasted and on the other side there ia a link to his merch at Target.It’s hard to tell who the sellouts really are.

This last comment is correct next to this post is an ad for Shawn White and Target.
