Shredding the powder in a different place

This was one of the most incredible experiences I’ve had. It’s only offered in a limited number of places and I’m grateful to have had this opportunity.

Over spring break, I went skiing in the Whistler-Blackcomb area up in British Columbia, Canada. While the resort area had plenty of snow and runs, on the last day, I turned elsewhere to find some powder. Whistler Heli-Skiing, a company based out of the Whistler Village, offers skiers and snowboarders the opportunity to take a helicopter ride out to the inaccessible pieces of a mountain range. There, people find gorgeous views and huge amounts of fresh powder. A great experience for the intermediate to advanced skier, it is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
