Happy snowboarders from snow starved Cali. Boot-top and fun to ride.

More snow in the forecast starting this weekend!

Two days now available in February

Friday, January 6th, 2012

Just had a cancellation for Feb 10/11th. Now have space for 2 groups of 4 each day- the only availability we have in February. Any one want to get their heli on?

Get in touch soon- these dates won’t last.

North Cascades currently have some of the deepest snow in the lower 48

Well we’re grateful our zone isn’t getting skunked like others. We’ll definitely keep doing our snow dance, but we’ve doubled our snowpack in the past week and have 75″+ in our alpine zone.

Here’s longer video from Jeff, shot last weekend/week in our terrain.

The B3 from JR helicopters gets here towards the end of the week for our annual guide training and set up- we can’t wait to hear the sound of the blades!

We open on the 13th of January and have good availability still through the 1st of Feb.

Deep pow in the Cascades!

La Nina is back. We’ve doubled our snowpack in the alpine in the last week and it’s skiing mighty fine.

Here’s a a video shot by Jeff December 30th.

Still good availability opening weekend and though most of January. Unlimited vertical + deep pow? What’s not to like about that equation?
