    I dunno--those rotor tips were awfully close to the snow. I'm impressed.
    Friend of mine was involved with a high angle rescue in the Winds--helicopter hovered with rotors inches from rock while he stood with one foot on ledge and one foot on skid helping to load the victim. I assume he was anchored, but still . . .
