Damn, not another one. I wonder what operation it was? I have a friend at Stellar right now and I believe they operate somewhere near that area. RIP and condolences to both families.

Snowwater Heli skiing. No news on skiers. All the best to the families.It's not so much the model year, it's the high mileage or meterage to keep the youth of Canada happy

I got tricked by that map; didn't look at it close enough. Since it was in the Bonningtons, I should have recognized it was Snowwater. Damn, that's too bad. I've know Patric and Maria for quite a few years and know this will weigh heavy on them. Most of their guests are repeat clients and they get to know them fairly well and become friends. This has to hurt them. Again, RIP to the victims and condolences to their families, friends, and the crew at Snowwater.

Very sad news, my condolences to the victims and rescue team. I can say from personal experience that Snowwater Heli is an incredibly safety-conscious outfit and have only top-notch guides who I would trust with my life.

^^ Me too. I feel very badly for all involved. Patric and Maria are friends. This has to be weighing on them, heavily.
