The Revelstoke Search and Rescue team is one of the busiest groups of its kind during the winter here in British Columbia. They are the first responders in the case of an avalanche, and with such great backcountry here and in the surrounding area, it’s no wonder they're so busy. Which is why it is excellent news that the Columbia Basin Trust has seen fit to make a donation of $25,000. That money is actually a match of another $25,000 given to the team from the province. With this new infusion of cash, the SAR team is upgrading a lot of its equipment, mostly communications gear. The money will put a new radio repeater tower on Sale Mountain to provide better coverage. Personnel radios are also being upgraded, and new equipment is being purchased. Heli skiing BC
This is great news for lovers of the backcountry here in Revelstoke. From skiers and snowboarders to snow mobilers and others, there are lots of people that head into the untouched wilderness for some great fun in the powder. Unfortunately, that fun always comes with the risk of an avalanche, which means proper safety precautions are always mandatory. With the upgrade to the SAR team's equipment, backcountry powder lovers can rest assured that there is someone waiting should things go wrong.
If you want to access some of the best big mountain slopes in this area in complete safety, then a trip with us here at Mica Heli Guides is the best option. We've got more than 177,000 acres of some of the best terrain on the planet. Covered in delicious B.C. champagne powder, our slopes are a delight to ski all season long. Sadly, space is limited, as we only run small group tours, which we've found provide the best experience for our guests. However, because there isn't much space, tours fill up fast, so book yours soon before it's too late. Heli boarding
