A few years ago I had the dream trip of a lifetime – a week with my wife at the Canadian Mountain Holidays (CMH) Caribou Lodge, which had been described as possibly the best skiing on earth. In a case of destiny, it was the rainest week in the ENTIRE history of CMH and they refunded/credited all of the guests, but as a snakey, freeloading writer, the offer was not extended to me. The little wannabe heliskier in me is still crying four years later.
But, here’s another chance. All you have to do is complete an essay (video?) of why ski touring is so great, and if you win, you’re in. Greg Hill narrates this video and I’m hoping that next year CMH will offer a contest where you have a chance to win a week of skiing with Greg Hill if you have the winning essay on why heli skiing is so great. Either way, you can’t lose.
