Abstract: Five seasons of operation with no serious accidents were halted last season (1988) because of insurance unavailability. The situation resolved itself for this season, at least, and we will be operating again. History will ultimately prove whether Canadian style helicopter skiing, using natural avalanche paths as ski runs, is insurable or not. This presentation is designed to let the avalanche community in on operational and geographic specifics, just south of the Canadian border.
