Northern Escape Heli-Ski March 9-16, 2007

Had an amazing trip up to Northern Escape Heli-Skiing this year. There is SO MUCH SNOW up there! 7.5-10 Meter base in the Alpine and snowing almost every day we were there. I met my friend Max (heli ski partner from Chile this summer) and his two friends all from Barcelona and we added Remo and John to our group most days. Great group to ski/ride with, we had a real blast! Great staff at the Lodge, ate way too much, fun night in Terrace on Thursday (who would have thought that Terrace has fun night life?), and some really great skiing!
The crew: Me, Max, Alberto, Enric, and Remo
