Whistler Sabbatical – A Heli & A Blonde Rocket

Whistler Sabbatical – A Heli & A Blonde Rocket

Two videos this week as Whistler Sabbatical Project winner “Lucky” Luke Dillon and his buddy Tim cap off their one-month, powder-filled sabbatical by hopping in a helicopter for some virgin pow and bluebird skies with Whistler Heli-Skiing’s head guide, John Furneaux. Living the dream and the video is above.

As the snowstorms kept rolling in the boys embarked on a day of deep tree skiing with Whistler local and Olympic Skicross gold medalist Ashleigh McIvor. Ever see a double double-ejection before?

Feet Banks moved to Whistler at age 12 so his parents could live the dream and ski as much as possible. He ended up living it too. After leaving home Feet did a few good stints in warmer climates and 4 years of writing school before returning to the mountains to make ski movies, hammer out a journalism career and avoid the 9-5 lifestyle as long as possible. He’s been a hay farmer, a hole digger, a magazine editor and has a jump named after him on Blackcomb Mountain, Feet’s Air. It’s tiny.
