Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)
Remember me:
👁 durr, I forgot...

World's largest heli-ski operator taken over by world's largest ski resort developer

Poster: A snowHead

Canadian Mountain Holidays - the pioneer heli-ski operator founded in 1965 - has been taken over by Intrawest, the major ski resort developer. [reported by PG in Bourg St Maurice]
CMH is the largest heli-skiing operation in the world, originally developed by Austrian-born Hans Gmoser in the Cariboos and Bugaboos...

It is owned by Alpine Helicopters Ltd. Intrawest formerly owned 45% of that company, but has now purchased the remaining shares. A press conference is being held today 16 December, and press reports are bound to follow. In the meantime, more information is on this press release onIntrawest's website.

We have a continuing thread on 'The World of Intrawest', which now includes China. The company is not free of controversy, and has been linked to the destruction of ancient pine trees in Les Arcs for its major developments there. Equally interesting, for those more taken with heli-skiing, is the history of CMH
