Heli-skiing is divine!

I love skiing and have skied at lots of places: Snowbird, Alta, Jackson Hole, Tahoe, Chamonix, Val d’Isère, Courchevel… However, there is something very different about heli-skiing and especially heli-skiing with CMH (www.cmhski.com/ski).

Skiing a full week in untracked snow floating on powder as if they were champagne bubbles is quasi-spiritual! I just arrived at the CMH Gothics lodge for a week of heli-skiing and after one day of skiing was overcome by a near spiritual moment of joy!

I was overwhelmed by gratefulness – to life, to my dad for having introduced me to skiing and taken me heli-skiing so young, to my circumstances! I am happy!

There is so much in life for wonder and awe – it sometimes makes me wonder that people need religion at all!

Here are a few videos and pictures to provide a glimpse of this magical adventure:

I am really looking forward to the rest of the week!

  • Well. I’d venture to say that people need religion because they can’t afford to go Heli-skiing or enjoy everything else in life for wonder and awe like you can, my friend… 🙂

  • Hey Fabrice,

    It looks, by looking at your pictures and video, that heli-skiing actually surpasses the quasi-spiritual description to meta-spiritual. The closest I have come to an experience like that was while free-diving with wild sealions in the Galapagos Islands, or watching the sunrise while summitting Cotopaxi (the tallest volcano on earth)at nearly 20,000 feet above sea level. I have never been skiing, but reading descriptions like yours, makes one want to do it in a heartbeat. Enjoy!

  • Writing about heli-skiing “religion” right before the global warming post is somewhat… paradoxal (to say the less).
    But I know, human beings are paradoxal as well…
