SKI

FIRST IMPRESSION­S

-

It takes a lot to wow a ski photograph­er, especially one as prolific and well traveled as veteran shooter Grant Gunderson. Yet during his first trip with Bella Coola Heli Sports, Gunderson was “completely blown away” by the terrain on offer—the largest heli-skiing tenure on the planet. Gunderson and skier Sam Cohen were grounded during the first seven days due to weather, then the skies cleared and the pair took flight. “It was an amazing first day out,” recalls Gunderson. “Perfect bluebird conditions with all runs starting at 6,000 to 7,000 feet in the alpine and skiing down directly toward the ocean.”
