Some Sweet Shots from Grant Gunderson

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

We had the good fortune to have shooter Grant Gunderson, along with athletes Molly Baker, Linesy Dyer and Zack Giffin out in the North Cascades for a few days towards the end of the season.

Grant’s photos from the trip are so stunning, we had to share the stoke. Thanks Grant!

New season, new B3 the “Swiss Miss”

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

Well, this just in from our friends at JR Heli, this beautiful red ASTAR AS350 B3 is heading from the Swiss Alps to the Alps of North America to grace the skies of the North Cascades. A B3 with Seamus O’Daihmin at the stick- hard to beat that combination.

“Wintertime is coming…

…everything is covered with frost.”

Some memorable words from Mr. Bob Dylan to keep in mind as the cold temps in Mazama serve as a reminder that winter will soon be upon us.

And so it is, that NOW is the time to line up your trip out to the beautiful Methow Valley and partake in a powder adventure. We’ll be picking up right where we left off last spring, as depicted in this photo of NCH guide Larry Goldie enjoying some freshies on Cinco de Mayo.

Yes, that is how we expect our winters to be around here – especially with the long range forecast calling for a strong La Nina.
