Week 10 belongs to our new owners

This week we welcomed our new owner Nicolas Saverys and 3 generations of his family. For many of the team here it was the first time to meet the family that make it possible for us to run the awesome Heliskiing program at TLH.

Nicolas has also recently purchased Tyax Wilderness Resort and was pleased to see the progress of our renovations on site as we prepare for the new Summer program.

But it was not a work week for them! We took off into the mountains every day with fresh snow conditions most days and bluebird skies for most of the week there was a lot of skiing to be done! Over 31,000m of Vertical. (So much so that it kept our massage therapists busy each night)

Nicolas has been a guest with TLH Heliskiing for over 7 years and in true Victor Kiam style he "liked it so much he bought the company".

This week only went to prove he had made the right decision, the group were all smiles and overheard Nicolas's nephew say "I just had the best day's skiing of my life!".

And whilst we entertained the family on the slopes all day, they entertained all the staff in the evening. Our guests turned into our hosts for an evening as we got to know, and become part of, his family.

I chatted to his daughter who was here for her first heliski, she had been training for months hoping to be good enough to make the most of the unlimited vertical on offer and she was so pleased at how great the skiing had been and that her fitness regime had paid off.

Apart from the skiing we had a competitive game of ice hockey (Belgium v Canada) and toured around the lake on the snowmobiles.

It was great to meet the family and sad to see them go, but we're looking forward to showing off the renovated resort to them when they come back this Summer. See you then guys!

For now here are some photos of the week
