Full Moon Film Stars Leanne Pelosi, Marie-France Roy and Annie Boulanger return to Mica

From honouring one of Mica’s 10 year returning guests to having three female snowboarding stars take over the lodge for four days, the month of March has been a busy one at Mica Heliskiing! March 6th – 10th marked the second trip of the season to Mica for Marie France Roy and Leanne Pelosi. The first took place in January, when they visited Mica to film for their two year project; Full Moon Film an all-female snowboarding flick produced by Pelosi that is set to release in Fall 2016. After spending five days filming in Mica’s famous pillow zones like Pillow Talk and Hanging Garden, the girls had captivated the other guests at the lodge with their infectious energy and excitement about being at Mica.

Skiing with a Legend: Scot Schmidt at Mica Heli

by Izzy Lynch When I received an e-mail from one of Mica’s lead guides that read: “Scot Schmidt is in my group this week and we have an extra spot in the heli. Would you like to come up tomorrow?” there was no thinking twice. Meeting, let alone skiing with one of freeskiing’s pioneers is not an opportunity that comes up every day. I have always been inspired by the originators in the ski world. They pushed limits and rebelled against the boundaries of the sport, skied lines that have never been skied, and inspired a culture, a community and a lifestyle that we call freeskiing today. (And they did it all on long, skinny skis. That, my friends, is talent.)
