Heli-Shred With Transworld

Deep in the Selkirk Range of British Columbia lies the Galena Lodge--luxury snowboard outpost and base of operations for the Transworld/Canadian Mountain Holidays Shred Sessions.

This is a special place, buried in snow and surrounded by Mother Nature’s version of a snowboard park; deep powder, pillow lines, open bowls, and endless white waves make up the terrain. Transworld Photo Editor Nick Hamilton and Editor In Chief Kurt Hoy agree: “It’s the world’s best snowboarding.

For that reason, Transworld has partnered with CMH--the inventors of heli-skiing--for two “Shred Sessions during March, 2008.

Each of these trips is the chance of a lifetime, open to anyone with strong riding skills and a healthy appetite for powder. You’ll shred the terrain of your dreams with legendary pros, CMH guides, and the Transworld crew. Nick Hamilton will be there (on his 185 swallowtail) to document the action; slide shows will go down midweek, and he’ll send you home with a CD and a custom print to prove that it was real. Board giveaways, bonfires, and a guaranteed 71,000 vertical feet of riding (five-day trip) are all a part of deal.

The Galena Lodge holds only 44 people, and seats in the helicopter will fill up fast. For more information, go to canadianmountainholidays.com.
