me and the heli
Another Blue-Bird day, today we were supposed to have the 4 person heli and get more runs in as the group had ridden together 2 days prior. On the first run, the pilot crashed a little and ruined the landing ski of the 4 person heli, so after the first amazing run, we were put back on the 12 person heli and had to combine groups. We still got 9 runs that day, and one was free for the inconvinience, so no complaints.... it was AMAZING POWDER ONCE AGAIN. This just taught me that I rock at snowboarding, because nothing they gave me gave me any sort of difficulty really.... I would have liked more drops to tell you the truth.... the biggest jump/drop we got was a cornice I did that was over hanging about 15 feet. I did about a 30 foot drop into pow pow, and my dumbass brother was filming right up to where I was about to jump and then the lens of the camera closed. Oh well.... I will always have the image in my mind! The rest of the trip after today was spent riding the mountain with lifts and we took a quick day trip to pemberton to see what it was(hick town is what it seemed). Overall, goood times!
