    TR- A tale of a girl(ski) and her heli

    It was around New Years Eve, I was crashing at casa de Squirrel and Z-bo for a long weekend of PNW pow farming. I am near passed out after a day of Stevens bc with rodent, Uncle Dash, Midget, hop, BC-Flow and a guest appearance from Jimmy Page...and my phone rings and it's my old man aka the man who gave me the gift of skiing.

    GS: Hi dad.
    Dad: Hi...wanna go to the Monashees?
    GS: You mean like heliskiing...FUCK YEAH I wanna go to the Monashees!"
    -at this point, all parties in the room with me are tuning into the conversation
    Dad: It's in March
    GS: Uh-huh
    Dad: For 7 days...and I can't go. So if I can transfer the name to you, you have a free heli-skiing trip.
    GS: HOLY SHIT!!!!!!!

    So yeah...My old man still ski races and his team, at a very well funded race, won last year and the prize was a week of heli-skiing with CMH in the Monashees. He couldn't go and was able to transfer the trip to me. It was not something that I ordinarily would have sought out, partly because it is so damn expensive. But it was one of the most amazing trips I have ever taken. Thanks dad!

    I have been home for almost one month now, but life after my trip was insane and I am just now getting around to picking out the pictures that I have wanted to share with all of you.

    It was all around P-L-U-S-H. I couldn’t have asked for anything more. Our accommodations were luxurious





    My crew was a group of great skiers who loved to have a good time

    We ate like kings…breakfast, flown in on hill lunch, after ski snacks, 4 course dinners...and didn't have to lift a finger (well ok maybe one)



    And the guides were not just qualified, but CUTE
    (I heart heli guides)



    For the men folk…let me introduce you to one of our guides, Steph aka the Perfect Woman

    I'm sure he's nice and all, but he scares me in a Marshall Applewhite sort of way.

    The lodge sits right on the Columbia River surrounded by the Selkirk and Monashee mountain ranges. When we had arrived, it was raining. The group that had left ahead of us had skied maybe 40K vert ALL week. There is a 100K vert guarantee and at the Monashees most people meet that by the 3rd day. They hadn't flown but knew that it was DUMPING up high. The Monashees are renowned for steep tree/pillow skiing. But they never see bluebird.

    Here is what I woke up to my first morning...and every morning for the rest of the trip




    Gotta go, my ride is here



    Ah yes…our pilot Dave. I’m right here sweetheart…

    Awesome trip for you, Girlski. We were in Revie from March 16-18 with Selkirk Tangiers and never flew. We got 4 runs of 6" of new glop on top of a bulletproof base at Powder Springs. It was the only skiing we got. Glad you hit it good! What dates were you there?

    Where we skied our first day. The trees on lookers left were fucking buttery

    The guides were really sick of these three hot chicks molesting them all of the time.

    Midweek we were treated to pow skiing in the morning, followed by about 6 runs of the most PERFECT corn...3500 vert per run all the way down to the heli pick up on the river. You don't go heli-skiing for corn, but it was pretty incredible. And then we skied more pow after lunch. I wasn't too heartbroken.







    You can't be me, I'm a ROCKSTAR

    Nice TR! My friends love the Monashees.

    If that's the same Stephanie I met at BB's , to be euphemistic,lets just say she wasn't very popular with anyone in our group!
    Calmer than you dude

    Stepping out of the heli onto...nothing



    Too bad this place is so ugly





    To borrow from a sticker that Monique made this season-
    "Honey, does this rock face make my ass look big?"



    I went heli-skiing and came back a farmer

    Looks awesome, glad you enjoyed it.
