March 5-10 Conditions… EPIC!

This week was truly epic with cold temperatures, tons of fresh dry powder, and a extensive tour of our tenure. We skied the classics runs  Notre Dame, Waimea, Cathedral, Plasticos and Belt Grinder in the Dore Wendle area of the Cariboos, and headed to the trees on Friday to ski Highlander, Immortality and Lagavulin among others. In the Rockies we had a fantastic day in Mount Rider on Scotty’s, Haggard Glacier and Primero and hit fantastic tree skiiing in the Morkill including Valentinos, Kickin’ Country, Piano Man and OTK. 

A huge thanks to all who joined us to make this such a fun and memorable week!

A Family Affair

This week marked a first for Crescent Spur Heli-Skiing-  3 generations skiing together! It’s been over 20 years that the Wilcox family has been skiing with Crescent Spur, and between Warren and his 2 sons Andy and Russ, they have skied a total of 57 weeks us. This past week Andy’s son Rylan joined us for his first (of hopefully many) heli-skiing trips (aka Father-Son bonding). 

The family has seen some changes over the years.. additions and upgrades to the lodge, the use of different helicopters, and now Warren is co-owner of Ascent Helicopters, with our pilot Trent Lemke. Over the last 20 years the Wilcox’s have become more than just guests, they are part of the CS family. It is rewarding for us at CS to see parents and kids experiencing the mountains together, passing on their love of heli-skiing, and we are always honoured when they choose to do it with us.

January 29 – Feb 3 Conditions

We had up to 70 cm of new snow with minimal wind at the beginning of the week and spent the first few days skiing in the Morkill and Macleod Creek. Mid week the skies skies cleared and we ventured into the the infamous glaciated terrain in the Cariboos where we skied from the mountain tops to the valley bottoms on dry preserved powder. Overall a awesome week!
