Paying Attention: Spring officially arrives on 20 March 2014. Which means that there are 13 days left of winter and winter skiing and then the spring skiing season starts (always a favorite). Just in case you haven’t taken your Official Ski Trip yet, here’s a little something to get you in the mood: a video on the ultimate side of the sport–Helicopter Skiing. Ski deep, ski steep, ski untracked powder and bring your very best technique with you (that would also include understanding the dynamics of avalanches and training in skiing safely in the backcountry). Here’s something to get you moving–a very nifty nine minute plus film from CMH (Canadian Mountain Holidays), the pioneers of the sport.
