I know the title sounds sexy. I actually met him at the lodge helicopter skiing Canada ,and we had a couple of meals together. He and his Oakley film crew were off in their own chopper (and I can’t believe he poached my line!). I also met Kazu Kokubo, an amazing Oakley team rider and nice guy.
I saw this video on the Last Frontier Heli-Skiing Helicopter Skiing Canada site, and it reminded me of that great trip. It was the second half of a heli-safari, having spent the first week at Ripley Creek with Team Salomon – but that’s the subject of another blog post.
Last Frontier Bell 2 is all about small groups, excellent terrain, high-speed tree skiing runs and cabins with a wood-burning stoves. I have been there a couple of times. What’s not to like?!
Back to Seth Morrison. He is one cool dude. Unassuming, soft spoken and genuinely friendly. We screened his life-documenting video, Ordinary Skier, one night while he provided narration. It’s a “Documentary about Seth Morrison’s journey from middle class suburban kid to world famous skier, and his struggle to stay on top of a rapidly evolving sport.” Very interesting journey….and he really pushes the limits.
He is no ordinary skier, but he’s a pretty ordinary guy. Very refreshing on a Canada helicopter skiing trip.
At the end of the trip I gave him a HELISKI.com hat, which I am sure he wears daily….Thanks, Seth!
