Fly North (or South) for your 2024 powder fix

Elemental Adventure •

If you haven't had your fix of powder in winter 2024, it's not too late! The season in the arctic latitudes of Iceland, Greenland and Alaska will soon be under way and, under the cover of darkness, the snowpack has been building up steadily... Alternatively, could 2024 be the year for a "summer" ski trip to the Southern Hemisphere?

A more distant, end of the earth type place would be hard to imagine and for the past four years I had dreamed of skiing these gigantic volcanoes that rise so abruptly from the mythical sounding, Sea of Okhotsk.

Heli-Ski Safari

This is not your regular Canadian heli-skiing. This is big wild northern British Columbia and compared to southern BC with all of its heli-ski operations sandwiched together; it’s like a different country.
