Eagle Pass Heliskiing Perfects the 'New Wave' in Heliskiing by Utilizing New Technology

Share Article

A new wave is taking helicopter skiing by 'storm'. The new trend for heli-skiing companies today is to venture into the mountains while skiing in small groups. In order to increase the level of safety, Eagle Pass Heliskiing is taking advantage of new technologies and development, supplying each participant with a 'SnowPulse Lifebag' inflatable backpack. This device represents a revolution in Avalanche safety technology.

Our goal is to provide the ultimate skiing holiday, but without sacrifice to safety or the environment.

As a progressive company, perfecting the 'new wave' in heliskiing has meant addressing both the areas of improving safety and environmental stewardship. Regarding safety the 'SnowPulse Lifebag' is a functioning backpack which contains a refillable compressed air cylinder and airbag within the shoulder straps. When deployed by the user the airbag inflates in a horseshoe shape around the users head and thorax and acts as a massive lifejacket and airbag, keeping users on the surface and protecting them from trauma injuries. This is the latest in avalanche equipment technology.

The company is also the first helicopter skiing operation to offer guests the opportunity to offset their carbon footprint. As part of Eagle Pass Heliskiing's corporate responsibility and awareness of the growing impacts and magnitude of climate change, clients can purchase and direct their contributions to the highly rated "Planetair" which supports renewable energy projects. These projects are managed by 'myclimate', one of the world's most trusted offset providers, which adhere to the most widely accepted quality seal for voluntary carbon offset.
"We strongly believe that the safety and environmental measures we have taken go a long way to cementing our position as the elite 'new wave' heli ski company in British Columbia," claims J Shepherd, the cheif Mountain Guide for Eagle Pass Heliskiing. "Our goal is to provide the ultimate skiing holiday, but without sacrifice to safety or the environment."
