Powder Introduction

This popular program is designed to get strong, intermediate skiers ready for Heli-Skiing. Although not for beginners- or for skiers who have taken several years off, it's great for people who have put in about 20 days a year for the past several seasons.

Other prerequisites include:

  • A strong, aggressive parallel turning technique
  • Adept at up-stem and kick turns
  • At ease with traversing steep slopes
  • Able to side-slip and side-step up, down and sideways on narrow, steep terrain

Groups are composed of 10 skiers, and are split according to ability. They are led by 2 specially-trained guides and offered throughout the season (see Dates and Prices). To learn more, watch Introducing CMH Heli-Skiing.
