Then men's FIS Alpine World Cup was back in action this weekend after a brief respite following the World Championships. The location for the event was Bansko, Bulgaria. Sunday featured the slalom race, and it was all about redemption for Austria's Mario Matt. He had previously lost his spot on the team due to lack of performance, but has hit a new stride in the New Year. He had a string of top 10 finishes going into the World Championships, and he has now won his 13th World Cup race. It was also a great day for Michael Janyk and the Canadian team. Janyk took fifth, the ninth time he's placed in the top five in slalom races. He is now just the third Canadian to rack up so many top place finishes in slalom. Fellow Austrian Reinfried Herbst joined Matt on the podium in second, while Jean-Baptiste Grange of France followed in third.
The snow conditions for the race weren't that bad considering the hard time Europe has been having this winter. It's been the complete opposite here at Mica Heli Guides. We've been enjoying powder dump after powder dump on our 72,000 hectare tenure located north of Revelstoke, British Columbia. With so much terrain to our tenure, you can imagine how epic the heliskiing is. With every kind of feature imaginable and some stunningly steep alpine peaks, heli skiing
and heli boarding here is like nowhere else.
We've quickly established ourselves as one of the premier heli ski
destinations thanks to our exclusively small group tours and excellent service. After seeing how all the bigger operations had taken all the fun and excitement out of heliskiing by cramming as many people as possible into the helicopter, we decided to offer only small group tours. This gives you a more personalized experience, and gives you more time to enjoy the mountain with your friends and family, as well as more time with the guide. Book a tour with us today, and let us show you just how fun heli skiing in Canada can be.
