Congratulations to the Grand Prize winner of The 2012 Warren Miller’s World Tour Sweepstakes, Nathan K. of Columbus, WI who has won the trip of a lifetime. Nathan and a guest will fly round-trip, via Alaska Air, to Canadian Mountain Holidays (CMH) in British Columbia to shred 100,000 feet of vert on a seven-day heli-skiing vacation. A guiding company to the core, CMH invented Heli-Skiing and has been guiding guests on skiing adventures since 1965.
Most skiers who have become identifiable by more than family and friends have won gold medals or set speed records. Scot Schmidt gained recognition by leaping off cliffs.
For Scot, the route to the edge of a cliff began in Helena, Montana, and had its roots in a promising racing career. After graduating from high school in 1979, Scot moved west to Squaw Valley to continue the search for points and ever higher rungs on the competition ladder.
