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...
