Banff – The day that changed EVERYTHING!

070220 – 0500 – The alarm goes off, I had barely any sleep. The reason for that was that today I knew would be a very special day! Me and Anders were going to be picked up in one hour and fifteen minutes with a bus taking us back to Panorama and RK Heliplex. It was time to take the virginity of flying a helicopter and also do some heli-skiing!!

The white mini-bus in form of a Chevy picked us up just outside the front desk at Hidden Ridge. First we stopped at a few hotels in Banff to pick up a few more people before we were on our way. Read the rest of this entry »

Yesterday it had been a bit misty and some snowfall (about a cm o two) but today the sun was again shining like crazy and I thought about was Jamie told me about Tunnel Mountain and thought, that could be a good thing to do today.

13 January – Thoughts about Banff

Well, why not?

Banff is really positioned very nicely, 1.5h from Calgary with all it’s amenities and services, it has about 10.000 people living here and Jamie said it’s a friendly town, everybody knows everybody.

It’s a metropolitan for adventures that I thuroughly enjoy, the mounaineering, the skiing, the climbing, the iceclimbing, the caving, the hiking, rafting, canoeing, dogsledding, you name it, you can do it.. Read the rest of this entry »

Panorama – Summery of 2006

Summery of 2006 and little more…

It is really unbelivable what has happened!

The last couple of years have really been amazing. It has been hard work, blood, tears, some swearing and a few arguments but when I look back it is amazing.

I was telling my mum just before Christmas over the phone that it is pretty cool what I have accomplished on such short time. Read the rest of this entry »

November Stories

18th to the 23rd of November 2006

061118

– The saturday was quite long, since I didn’t have to much to do, so I just walked around the village to get a feel for the place and so that I could find my way around it as well.

061119 –

The sunday was even longer and I soon got quite boored since there’s nothing really you can do. I went into Invermere to shop for some groceries and got a ride down the mountain quite easy and got it explained to me where to shop, where to go to catch a ride up again the easiest way. Priceless information, all free ;)) Read the rest of this entry »
