The search for untracked powder drives many of us to search for ways to get the goods as we gaze at distant peaks from local resorts full of powder. Yes a helicopter is one of the best ways to access the goods and enjoy the pristine mountains. The Lake Tahoe area has many resorts and lots of back country access and now will have heli access.
Pacific Crest Heli Guides will operate this winter in the Lake Tahoe region.
"The following is detail we found on their web site: "Our adventures range from Helicopter skiing, and snowboarding, to summertime adventures such as heli fishing, heli hiking, and downhill mountain biking. Our location is poised just minutes from the world class ski resorts of Squaw Valley, Alpine Meadows, Northstar, Mt Rose, Heavenly, and Sugar Bowl.
Wether you choose heliskiing at Lake Tahoe in our deep powder snow, or our remote helihiking tours to relax at distant mountain lakes, flightseeing tours, or downhill mountain biking, you will benefit from our conveinient locations near Reno, Sacramento, and San Francisco.
We fly our tours from the Truckee Airport, as well as the South Lake Tahoe airport, and can pick you up from several other locations around Lake Tahoe as well."
Looks like the fun meter was just provided another bar to reach for Tahoe powderhounds.
