We had our first helicopter ride here. It was rather exhilirating! We flew over the beautiful snow capped mountain ranges of Whistler and Blackcomb. It was about a 30 minute flight. We had headphones so we could hear/converse with the pilot. We dipped down low to see glaciers. The sunlight refracted the many faceted pieces of ice into fragments of brilliant, vibrant colors. It appeared as a mighty ice sculpture of rainbows. Quite awesome. An experience that was incredible and off the beaten track.
