CMH Heli-Skiing and K2 Skis Announce Ski Demo Trips for 2010
CMH Helicopter Skiing and K2 Skis offer guests the opportunity to participate in the
development of new backcountry skis. All guests get free skis at the end of the trip.
Banff, Alberta (Vocus) July 17, 2009 -- CMH Heli-Skiing is pleased to announce a new partnership with K2 Skis
with the launch of two ultimate back-country CMH / K2 Ski Demo Trips for ski-gear junkies: Heli-Skiing from
the Monashee Lodge, March 13 – 20, 2010, and Helicopter Assisted Ski Touring from the Adamants Lodge, April
10 – 17, 2010.
Beyond the powder-addicting joys of wilderness skiing, the CMH / K2 Ski Demo Trips will provide guests the
added experience of participating in the testing and design of K2 prototype backcountry skis that will be released
to the general public for the 2010/11 winter season. Guests will have the opportunity to demo different skis
throughout the trip; provide real-time and valuable feedback on the performance of the skis they have tested, and
learn about the process of ski design from on-site K2 designers and engineers. In addition, once the skis are
perfected and put into production for the 2010/11 season, participants will be the first to receive a free pair of
these K2 Skis compliments of CMH.
Helicopter assisted ski touring takes place in the Adamants, April 10 - 17, 2010. This seven day trip features a
daily helicopter drop in the mountains for a full day of backcountry ski touring and K2 ski testing. Each evening
guests will be picked up and flown back to the lodge for a relaxed dinner, soak in the hot tub, and drinks by the
fire. Cost per person $3,700 CAD based on twin occupancy.
A full-power seven day heli-ski trip takes place in the Monashess, March 13 – 20, 2010. This trip features a
skiing guarantee of 30,500 vertical metres (100,000 vertical feet) and daily K2 ski testing. Cost per person is
$10,440 CAD based on twin occupancy. The Monashee mountains are world renowned and admired for their
long, consistently steep-pitched runs
