Helicopter Skiing

British Columbia, Canada, offers some to the best powder skiing terrain in the world. Companies like Mike Weigele Helicopter Skiing and Canadian Mountain Holidays have pioneered what has become the upscale powder skiing experience. For "just a small fee" you can be helicopter lifted for 100,000 vertical feet of pristine skiing, never crossing the same tracks twice. These photographs were taken in 1986.
