Helicopters: Whitecap Alpine Ski Trip 2012


In praise of the Helicopter

Ace pilot

Keep your fingers off the Helicopter!
Flying over Darcy Lake
Ready for another week in the backcountry??
All aboard!
Keep your head down
I think that the fly in to the hut on the Heli is one of my favorite parts about these trips.  Access to the interior of BC or to the mountain ranges in general relies on Helicopters and they are a fact of life up there.  No doubt they are taken seriously, but it is interesting to see what a general way of life that they really are.  It is hard not to take A LOT of pictures of Helicopters that is for sure!
