Heli-skiing is divine!
February 12, 2007
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!
