    Dean Cummings went full-bore crazy

    I can’t figure out why a heli op stiffing people and being blasted for it all over the internet is a bad thing.

    Shit. Does that make me FLDS???

    Carpathlan: LDS AND FLDS are two very different things. I have grown up surrounded by LDS people and they are some of the best, most family oriented, honest people I know. Dean grew up surrounded by the same.

    I am sure FLDS people can be awesome too. But some of them move to remote locations and then take over towns and have 12 year olds marry their uncle, cousin, etc. Some of them kick out members and give their family (Wives and children) to other members. There are boys that get kicked out of the church that literally are left on street corners in St. George to fend for themselves with little education and no money. All of this causes me to judge that group harshly.

    For full disclosure, I grew up with Dean. While we were never real close, I skied with him a lot. and kayaked with him a little. At the time I knew him, he partied too hard, but was someone I would trust. You could argue I did trust him with my life, because that is what Kayaking is.

    My saying he took an aggressive line in marriage is a recognition that a girl who grew up in a polygamist community, might not be real open to outsiders, and might have some demons arising from a unusual family dynamic. From my perception, they polygamist community within the FLDS is one that has understandably had guards up for generations, and will drastically turn on those that threaten them.

    Usually the truth is somewhere in the middle. If Dean set up his life in a way that his wife's family had influence on his business, and then his marriage went sideways, there may be more to his video than pure conspiracy crazy. I'm sorry it went this way for him. If he ripped people off, I hope they are working with the proper authorities to get their money back.

    good thing he didn’t swipe a pair of skis from a rack.
    from what i’ve read here from others, that’s a potential
    capital offense punishable by extreme measures.

    Consider it a Public Service Announcement (PSA) to let the general skiing public know that Dean has been taking everyone's deposit money and NOT honoring his commitments. It's a trend with him - taking money/not being honest to settle his debts/fraudulent behavior.

    It has nothing to do with religion. It has to do with someone that has potentially mental health issues that is blaming the FBI, the Governor, the military, the mafia, the church, Powder Magazine, his employees for his current business condition. For those of you that have been around awhile know that Dean has not been able to get helicopter operators from any local Alaska helicopter company - he's stiffed them all over the years to the point where he was having to ferry a ship all the way to AK from Colorado the past couple of years. Of course, some will still want to believe that all these organizations are "out to get" a small business that has supposedly uncovered "Scooby-Doo-esque" conspiracies and now these shadowy forces are plotting his destruction.

    Here's another example: his entire guide staff and support team quit en masse mid-season last year due to his lunatic state. Again, the staff had no religious affiliations, they just wanted to guide and work in AK under someone sane and "normal".

    I posted the link to Dean's 20 volume YouTube manifesto as a warning, it's slight better to be simply bat-shit crazy than a full-blown fraudulent con-man/huskster that is simply using his name to swindle people out of their money.

    *Consider it a PSA to the general public that the buyer should be aware of what's going down in Valdez*

    I do not know why the OP felt the need to save us from Dean, Although I would agree with the second paragraph. I just stopped by the Forest Service and his permit was revoked this spring. So if he swindles you out of heli money you probably deserve it now. I imagine the sharks will be circling for the permit.

    Funny side note Al, about 10 years back when the new 20/20 ppl bought Ski Smithers they upgraded the office space there on Railway Ave.

    In the office behind the reception counter was big blown up poster close up shot of Dean making big jump turn on a steep spine in AK with a bunch of heli bamboo LZ markers in his pack.

    I remember asking the manager lady why that pic and not something more local like a pic on Hudson Bay Mountain and she gave solid non-answer.

    It might still be there for all I know...

    yeah not a suprising answer anyhow lotsa change sine then

    the office was moved over to main street

    just one owner now he hired a real accountant who is running the hill/counting all the beans which is a good thing

    I deal with buddy for the run cutting and he is good to deal with, he makes sure things stay lean and in the black

    that manager lady and her hubby have been out of the business for quite awhile,

    they moved away but he was killed very recently in a plane crash up the babine river doing thermal imaging to look for old forest fires ... tragic eh

    Looks like the USFS took H2O's permit away:

    Turns out the Feds don't give their land to total criminals/liars. Sucks to be Dean.

    You're joking, right?

    You didn't see this thread before today?

    If he's really still taking people's deposits after pulling stakes on his buisness then it's criminal
