CMH Heli-Skiing and K2 Skis Announce Ski Demo Trips for 2010 (20-Jul-09)

CMH Heli-Skiing has announced a new partnership with K2 Skis

CMH Heli-Skiing has announced a new partnership with K2 Skis with the launch of two ultimate back-country CMH / K2 Ski Demo Trips for ski-gear junkies. The trips are Heli-Skiing from the Monashee Lodge, March 13 – 20, 2010, and Helicopter Assisted Ski Touring from the Adamants Lodge, April 10 – 17, 2010. In both cases guests get to test new gear and will receive a free pair of the perfected skis created as a result of the testing the following season.

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.

The first week of helicopter assisted ski touring takes place in the Adamants from 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 is $3,700 CAD based on twin occupancy.

The second option is a full-power seven day heli-ski trip takes place in the Monashess from 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, offering some of the best tree skiing on earth.

Both CMH / K2 Demo ski trips include accommodation throughout at casually luxurious lodges (Monashees or Adamants), all meals, snacks and non-alcoholic beverages, ground transportation from Calgary International Airport, Services of IFMGA (International Federation of Mountain Guides Association) and/or ACMG (Association of Canadian Mountain Guides) certified ski guides, training in and use of avalanche transceivers, use powder skis and poles and helicopter transfers.
