Let’s face it, every time the air turns cold and the snow clouds begin to roll in, our thoughts turn to hitting the slopes. Once that frisson of excitement subsides the lingering question remains, ‘Will my equipment live up to expectations and is there any must have kit that well… I just must have?’ We can answer that for you with 3 of the hottest products to take your luxury heliski holiday to the next level.
There’s no doubt that ski design has come a long way since 2m skis were on the short side of acceptable. The latest trend for those who look for deep snow is rocker technology. Having a rockered ski that bends skywards at the front and back offers more floatation in the powder so you use less energy and can really make the most of your day in the deep stuff. K2 pioneered this technology with the Pontoon and it continues to lead the way as one of the best powder skis money can buy.
Tired of having to always take your pack off to get at those essentials? Fed up with the lumpy avalanche gear swinging around on your back? The North Face Powder Guide Vest is the answer to your problems. Stylish, compact, and comfortable, the Powder Guide Vest has all the storage exactly where you need it for a great day in Revelstoke’s backcountry.
What better way to relive that perfect day heliskiing than showing off your amazing footage in the Bighorn movie theater? GoPro offers HD quality video from a camera that’s smaller than a juice box and a range of mounting devices that means you’ll always catch that enormous grin on your face as you put another turn down the perfect powder slopes of the Monashee Mountains.
