Eagle Pass Announces New Staging Facility

Eagle Pass Heliski has announced a new Day Heliski/Board Staging Facility for the 2015 season. This 5,800 square-foot facility, designed and built by Shawn West and Eric Chevalier ‐ two of the heli outfit’s Lead Guides ‐ will be the new central meeting spot for all Day, Private and Media guests.

Located directly on the Trans Canada Highway heading west, a 6 km drive from downtown Revelstoke, guests will meet each morning to collect all safety gear and powder skis (both free for all guests), complete training, then step onto one of three choppers parked at the facility for an epic day of heli Nirvana. By meeting at this facility, the Eagle Pass operation will now be that much closer to its tenure, resulting in shorter flight times, and guests enjoying the deep, dry Monashee powder as soon as the sun rises. As a bonus, since all the media crews that visit Eagle Pass will meet at this facility ‐ like Absinthe Films, Poor Boyz Productions or Sherpas Cinema ‐ you never know what pro skier or rider you might bump into before taking off for the day.
