Keep heli-skiing outside Spearhead


Dear Editor,

What a beautiful Christmas. I was showing a friend of mine Lakeside Bowl. Together we looked out on one of the most breathtaking views in the world. Some of the most beautiful terrain in the world to ski tour in. Finally I said to them it will soon be connected with a series of huts that will give the tourists visiting a taste of what is to be one of the world’s most beautiful ski tours. In its completion, it will connect two of the most beautiful ski areas in the world.

So the other night an old climbing partner mentioned that Whistler Heli-skiing is interested renewing it's tenure to helicopter ski in the Spearhead area. Sorry! I used helicopter ski guide for that company. It has so much helicopter ski tenure there is absolutely no need to have that terrain of the Spearhead.

It would completely destroy the whole experience of the huts and touring on the spearhead. Whistler Heli-skiing has a ridiculous and sufficient amount of terrain in its tenure for helicopter skiing. If they love the mountains and respect the experience of ski touring let this go. I ask Parks to stand up for what they know is right and do not allow helicopter skiing to renew any tenure on the Spearhead Traverse. Those huts will be amazing and those travelling to and between them need the peace and serenity of the snow and peaks for their days and nights. Please you have enough terrain don't spoil this for your children and their children's experiences. Leave them something un-mechanized and untouched. You have plenty.
