2011 season wrapped up

Thursday, March 24th, 2011

With big fat flakes falling here at the heli barn today, it’s a sad day not to have the Swiss Miss (aka N350VR) ready to whisk some skiers and riders into the North Cascades for some more epic pow.

A hearty thanks to all of our 2011 guests for making the trip to the Methow Valley and skiing and riding with us. And a big thanks to our partners at the Freestone Inn, the Mazama Store and JR Helicopters for helping make 2011 a safe and successful one. We couldn’t do this without you!

We are taking reservations for the 2012 season though the summer- you can lock in this year’s rates if you put a deposit down before June 1st, 2011. Select heli-skiing dates are already gone and we have three trips on the books already at the Barron yurt, so don’t delay in making a reservation if you have dates in mind!

Thanks to Jon, Ming, Shawn and Pete for coming out. And for sending in this video. We’ll see you guys next year….

Who wants to come get some of this next week?

Availbility, going, going, almost gone.

March continues to deliver the goods, with some of the deepest snow of the season. You only have one chance to get your heli on if you aren’t booked already, and that is on Thursday the 17th of March- we have room for one last group of 4 skiers or riders for a standard heli program. Call the office to book that date.

Over 4′ of new in the last week

And conditions are some of the best of the season, if not the best. Thanks to Dave Waag of Off-Piste Magazine for the slide show, shot yesterday in the Silverstar area.

You could get some of this next Tuesday-Thursday. Other than that, we’re booked until March 17th, with very limited availability the 17th-20th. Don’t delay calling us if you want to get your heli on….

A nice write-up
