Heliskiing is an equipment-heavy experience. From having proper clothing to wearing skis suitable for the terrain, merely being ready to ski at all requires guests to wear and examine a considerable number of items. Following this, Heliskiers also need emergency equipment in case of events like avalanches, and the Helicopters themselves must be kept in top shape at all times and possess their own network of parts and personnel. Few companies could possibly handle everything themselves, but like many other businesses, Mica doesn’t have to.
In order to provide guests with the ultimate Heliskiing experience, Mica has partnered up with a multitude of companies and formed a broad support network. The official sponsor of goggle and eye wear for Mica, Smith Optics, helps guests see the terrain regardless of the weather, while The North Face provides the cutting edge apparel and outerwear encouraged for use as part of the Mica experience. Some gear is provided by Mica and does not need to be brought along; all visitors are encouraged to ask about what gear is available at Mica before packing in order to help avoid burdening the helicopters with too much weight.
The helicopters themselves are run by partner Arrow Helicopters, which supplies and services multiple vehicles depending on the current guest list at Mica. Different packages may have different vehicles assigned to them, and Arrow Helicopters’ emphasis on maintenance and safety has greatly helped in creating a safe, accident-free experience.
These are only a few of the many partners who have linked up with Mica Heliskiing in order to provide the best possible service to all guests. Visitors who would like to know more can visit Mica’s website and search under the ‘Partners’ tab, which has a more complete list as well as links to these companies so that guests can see for themselves who is helping to give them the ultimate Heliskiing experience.
Mica Heliskiing has worked hard to provide an unforgettable experience for their guests, whether they are on the slopes or in the lodge/chalet. To experience them for oneself, review their website at www.micaheli.com, email them at [email protected], or call 877-837-6191.
