Heli-skiing – the phrase had always sent cool chills up my spine. The elitist, expert, edgy sport sounded too risky and remote for me. I grew up skiing in-bounds at Eastern ski resorts. Still, my hard core skier friends and my husband (who has long craved a week-long heli trip) insisted it was the ultimate, and a lifetime must. So, I swallowed my fears and took flight last week. Greg and I heli-skied in Bella Coola, British Columbia, and it was as extreme, exciting, and epic as my highest expectations.
