Recommended Cat trip ?
I've seen the the thread for Resort recommendations, but couldnt find anything on CAT/Heli trips ? Any of you had a killer Cat trip worth mentioning ? Preferably Montana, Oregon, Idaho and B.C.
My annual Cat trip to Peak Adventures came to a halt, all because of the state of Idaho. The owner (of 17 years) Steve, sold it to a young couple from Colorado and Idaho state shut them down with a line of B.S., so now I'm looking for a place that I feel will be hard to match Peak Adventures.
Three years ago I planned a Heli trip for me and my buddies 25th year riding anniversary. We were never so disappointed in our 25 years of riding, it wasn't the terrain, the conditions or the guide, it was the false claims on North Cascades Heli's website. You are guaranteed 5 runs and so many vertical feet, well those 5 runs took us approx 1 hour, from the time we got to the Heli Barn in the morning, to loading up the Heli and making our 5 runs, it was under 2 hours total, their secretary even asked if we were back already and that she hadn't even made our lunches yet. The false claim I was talking about is that on their website it says " Come and join us for a full day of untouched powder turns", FULL DAY under two hours, I cant figure out how you can possibly make that trip last all day, when we did our 5 runs in a hour ? and all that for $900+, I will spend my cash on Cat trips from this point on, it definitely wasn't the 25th Anniversary snowboard trip we were hoping for.
