Eagle Pass, Heliskiing, B.C.

Travel

A new Revelstoke heliski outfit serves up virgin slopes in a 600-square-mile domain.

The chopper thumps up Victor Creek and lands on a ridge somewhere above Revelstoke, British Columbia. Eagle Pass Heliskiing guide Norm Winter exits into the Crayola-blue Monashee morning. Winter—who has the sky-matching blue eyes that all mountain guides seem to share, deep-set in a face that's all angles—skis down to timberline, then stops to dig a snowpit and gauge avalanche conditions. Satisfied, he clicks into his bindings.

Last Gasp

Travel

Head south to 17,300-foot Chacaltaya, where the air is thin, the skiing is poor, and the entire place might melt before you get there.
