What is Heli Skiing?
It’s where you take a helicopter to the top of a mountain and go down its fresh powder. To put that into perspective, I was above where they let off the explosives for avalanches. Yep, 13,400 feet above the Rocky Mountains and I made it down in one piece. Above is the proof.
What You Won’t See In My TV Land Video:
You know the lyric in America, The Beautiful where it says “For Purple Mountain Majesties”? Well, now I get it. When I was on top of Potosi Peak, the mountains didn’t look white, they looked purple. I thought my perspective was so unique, until our guide politely called me out, saying, “Well, yeah, that’s why they call it purple mountains!” Duhhhhh. So, next time you’re above the Rockies, don’t be me, be the guide, and point out why America, The Beautiful has that lyric. You’re welcome.
