    Cheaper to buy your own helicopter and pilot?

    I'm sure it will be a good operation. I have skied quite a bit with one the guides Hugh Barnard over many years in NZ, India, Kamchatka & Europe. Also met Mike Overcast many years ago when he was at Chucagh Powder Guides in Girdwood. Spoke with Hugh about it last month in Wanaka and certainly sounds impressive, but I am long past the stage of committing that sort of money up front for a week. I just do all my heli time now in NZ where it is much more flexible and relaxed.

    Have been with PNH in Alaska =way cheaper than that, I think about $6000 US per week [exchange rate was excellent then.]
    Its true that some weeks w PNH the helis cant fly and that they can get shit snow conditions when its dry and windy leaving an icy crust.
    Did meet a German man from the Bahamas who is doing the Tordrillos.
    Can confirm that it would be awesome but a bit much money on something so weather dependent.
    When I joked about his job in the Bahamas there was definitely no comment !!!!!!
