December 2011- Heli Ski/ Powder Trip ?
Posted August 7th, 2011 - 11:17 pm by from Denver, United States (Permalink)
I am trying to plan a ski trip this upcoming December and was thinking of heading up to BC for some powder days. I would really enjoy doing a Heli trip or a backcountry trip. If anyone has suggestions or would be willing to host me during my trip that would be amazing. Im 25, and looking to get crazy on the hill as well as have some local fun. I am not stuck on BC, and would be open to make my trip to another city if anyone wants to show me what canadian skiing/riding is all about. Thanks all, :)

Hi Ryan
Ryan My daughter lives in whistler andshe went cat skiing in the back country might be a little cheaper then the heli but you really have to wait for the snow . Out east here we dont have great skiing until Jan. Look into Mount Tremblant not big but one of the bigest we have or Massif .
Love when people talk about skiing in the middle of the summer thanks for that ! cheers

December is not a great month for skiing in Quebec,January and february is the best !!! If you come at one of this month and if you want i host you and show you the Mount a Liguori at 'Massif de la petite riviere St-francois'.
its a backcountry skiing (be careful and take insurance before riding).We can go at Jay Peak resort,Vermont is very nice too.

my top Mountain near Montreal for backcountry its
1. Mont a Liguori at 'Massif' 3h30 from Montreal
2. Jay Peak at Vermont,U.S.A 2hr30 from Montreal
3. Mont Tremblant,Quebec 2hr from Montreal

In Quebec we are not lucky and we dont have Heli-Ski near,but one day i will go to BC or Alaska to try the heli-ski for sure its one of my expensive dream !!!
I never go in Colorado, how was the Ski ?
What is the best mountain for Backcountry in colorado ?
I agree with Merle its very nice to have a little conversation about ski in middle of summer i like that,and who know maybe one day we will meet on the mountain! Cheers
