March 2024 Heli Skiing News

Preview: Filming at Ripley Creek

After a 7 year hiatus, we hosted a small film crew in February with the goal of producing a new promo video. This year we chose to spend the entire week at Ripley Creek. As with all heliski trips the weather has a big influence on these shoots – and we had it all. 

New for this project was the introduction of FPV drones. For those of you who haven’t seen these things in action, they fly VERY fast and to the uneducated eye appear to be out of control most of the time – which they are not! We are definitely set to see some unique angles.

Grant Baldwin who has produced most of our past videos [see here] was once again behind the camera, Jason Hummel was taking stills and Harry Morris was the ‘drone guy’. Skiers Lucas Wachs and Emily Childs make some of our more challenging skiing look easy.

We look forward to sharing the finished product, later this year.

March Ski Report

March opened to blue skies and a chance to ski runs that have not been visited in ages. The ski program then quickly transitioned to deep tree skiing with the arrival of a Pacific storm that dumped 70cm [27″] of fresh snow.

The skiing remained off-the charts good into the middle of the month with another 50-70cm [20-27″] of POW. Month to date, we are sitting at well over 150cm [59″] of new snow, which is a welcome reprieve after a drier than usual February.

This week we had a few days of Springlike temps throughout BC. Our guides are being put to the test to sniff out preserved powder stashes up high. The outlook calls for a breakdown of the high-pressure system early next week and cooling temps.

Momentum remains strong and options are becoming thinner as we approach the peak of our 2025 booking season.
