Shot between Christmas and New Years Eve, 2011, photographer Jordan Manley and filmer Anthony Bonello from b4apres Media joined Rossignol athletes Dave and Tessa Treadway at Great Canadian Heli-Skiing (canadianheli-skiing.com) to shoot and capture some unique images and angles.
The exact location of the shoot was in great Canadian's Burnt Forests. These are sections of forest where a fire has destroyed the undergrowth, leaving beautifully spaced trees, and wind protected powder snow. The Burnt Forests are numerous in Great Canadian's terrain and provides amazing skiing when it is DUMPING snow, allowing guests to continue to HELIski while other operations might be experiencing a 'down day' or jumping into a slow, smelly, noisy snowcat.
The staff and guests at Heather Mountain Lodge joined the crew in the evenings for food, drinks and even a bit of a sing-along. Enjoy.

La Nina is back! That means even more epic conditions than usual! Great Canadian Heli-Skiing, the most accessible Canadian operation from an international airport, is located between Golden and Revelstoke BC in the heart of the world’s heli-skiing powder belt where it snows +46ft (14m). Most guests can leave their homes in the morning and be eating dinner in our lodge that same day! Since 1988, Great Canadian Heli-Skiing has been skiing exclusively in small groups of 4 and with Unlimited Vertical (i.e. no extra vertical charges). With the greatest flexibility in the industry guests can choose ANY trip length (2, 3, 4, 5, 6+ days) and start ANY day of the week. We will work to your schedule! canadianheli-skiing.com
