The first ski areas in all of North America have officially opened for the 2010-2011 season. Loveland and Arapahoe Basin in Colorado are always battling it out to see which of the high elevation resorts can reach a stable base first. Loveland took the honors for the second time in a row this year, offering skiers an 18-in base on its terrain which is above 10,000 ft. They're still making snow in order to open all the runs, so they're not complete yet, but an important milestone has been reached for skiers throughout the U.S. and Canada.
That gets us super excited here at Mica Heli Guides. Our terrain is so epic, it's taunting us with its bare slopes. The snow has started to fall on the upper slopes, but we're still waiting for that first big drop. We're getting plenty of moisture already, but the snow level just hasn't dropped far enough. We're waiting for a good solid mass of cold air to start making its way down from the Arctic. Once that happens, the weather will be in champagne powder making mode.
Everyone that ever visits our tenure always leaves raving about how deep and dry the powder is here. From ski professionals to ski and snowboard enthusiasts, everyone is stoked about heli skiing
at Mica. With our incredible terrain, powder, and service, we've quickly become one of the leaders in the heliskiing industry. By offering exclusively small group tours, we preserve the uniqueness of the backcountry experience, providing you with what the backcountry is all about: freshness.
Fresh tracks, fresh snow, fresh everything. We've put a lot of work into developing our operation into a premier destination, and it shows in how fast our tours fill up every year. Many are already sold out for the upcoming season, and we're not sure how much longer space will be available. If you're ready to see what heliskiing
is all about, book with us and let us show you.
