So I just came back from my first heliskiing experience. When I asked my friend "what was it like your first time" (clearly a tad nervous) she said she was too busy with how beautiful it was. She was just so right. You get off the helicopter (which in itself is just the coolest thing) and just wow, wow, wow, there aren't words to describe it. I was honestly too struck by how beautiful it was to be nervous. Then i laid down some turns and i was hooked. But it was not just the scenery (which was out of this world), but it was the people too who made the trip. The safety training was thorough, and they made sure you understood, the gear they had was great & the guides knew everything inside and out, and they totally enjoy in the experience with you. I had the awesome pleasure of touring with Dawn and Chris - both of them were incredible, but I would have gladly toured with anyone there.
And Juneau, it is a great town too. Chill, people were super nice and the location of the heliport is riiiight outside.
Simply put, my one in a lifetime adventure turned into a "i'll be back" - thank you everyone, rock on! ~
