SNOW TRUMPS ECONOMY: PHENOMENAL SNOW CONDITIONS INCITES DEMAND FOR GREAT CANADIAN HELI-SKIING TO OPEN 3 WEEKS AHEAD OF SCHEDULE

Great Canadian Heli-Skiing’s season usually starts just after Christmas, but due to the 2 metre (+6ft) snow-base, over 1 metre more than the yearly average for this time of year, the industry leading company is opening early in order to satisfy consumer demand.

Golden, BC, Canada (December 4, 2009) – Great Canadian Heli-Skiing is ‘stoked’ to announce that the first paying guests will go heli-skiing this Sunday, December 6th, 3 weeks before the normal start date! This lucky private party, which includes the only North American delegate to be invited to judge the snowboarding events at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, shows that amongst Great Canadian’s guests, snow is definitely trumping the economy!

The next scheduled group to go heli-skiing was to be on Boxing Day. However, due to numerous calls into Great Canadian Heli-Skiing’s office by guests demanding to come heli-skiing in order to enjoy the amazing conditions, the decision was made to meet consumer demand by operating much earlier than scheduled. The next group of lucky skiers and boarders will arrive Friday, December 11th for a 3 day trip. As of press time, only 8 seats remain.

Further highlighting how snow is trumping the economy, November bookings to Great Canadian Heli-Skiing were 30% higher than any other previous November and it was the 2nd biggest month in the past 6 years.

Tim Wilkinson, Director of Marketing for Great Canadian Heli-Skiing, said “With a slow start to winter in Europe, Eastern North America and the traditionally snow sure states of Utah, Colorado and California, now is the right time to finally book that trip to the powder-choked interior of British Columbia that you have always talked about. As availability is extremely limited, we strongly suggest that if you want to experience the amazing snow conditions that we are having, you should call us as soon possible to reserve a spot!”
