Fall 2011 – Winter is in the Air

It was a  short fall season – just enough for most of the flowers to finish blooming at the lodge before the first hard frost finished everything off in early October.  Now the lodge, at 2000 ft elevation, is seeing lots of rain.  But just 200 feet up at highway level, it’s snowing!  The fall leaves were stunning, but they have now fallen and the mountains are white with accumulating snow. It looks like it will be the big winter that forecasters are predicting.

It’s time to get the winter tires on and tie up all of the lodge projects.  The arrival of the first guests is just 10 weeks away and everyone at Crescent Spur Heli-Skiing is feeling the excitement, especially when reminiscing about last winter’s epic conditions.

You will see lots of familiar faces with retuning staff – all of our guides and flight staff are returning, as are many of our lodge staff.  You will also meet a number of new staff which we welcome to the Crescent Spur team.

Guests from last season will remember Erin, our friendly bartender.  She not only looked after you at the bar but was also at the door to greet you at the end of each ski day. She is our new House Manager and it will be her cheerful voice that you hear when you call our office.
