Learn to Fly... And Return to Earth

Alternative to extreme, some sporting ideas for winter

(page 4 of 5)

Heli-skiing

“. . . taking fresh powder days to the ultimate level.”

Bill Janss—wanting to explore fresh powder that fell on mountains we once only looked at—had an idea back in 1966 after a visit to Canada. The skiing legend and then-owner of the Sun Valley Company discovered the fledgling sport of heli-skiing there and knew he had just the place for it to make its American debut. As a result, he founded Sun Valley Heli-Ski (SVHS), the first heli-ski company in the United States.
