Heli Skiing Internship for Outdoor Rec Grad
An update from Brett Menter, a Colorado Mountain College Leadville Spring Outdoor Recreation Leadership grad, whom is currently in Alaska learning hands-on from Majestic Heli Ski for his Outdoor Recreation Internship.
Aside from being in the field, I have been doing a lot of office work for the company. Social media, flight following, radio control, helicopter fueling, and much more. I have been picking up clients from Anchorage along with random jobs around the lodge. From serving our high end dinners to organizing and maintaining all of our gear, I am really getting the all around idea of how much work goes into running a heli-ski operation.
One thing I haven’t mentioned, is the ice climbing. As I have experience in the climbing world, I have been selected to assist in taking clients out to local waterfall-ice area about 10 miles from our lodge. If the weather isn’t clear enough to fly, Teague and I will take clients ice climbing. I didn’t imagine getting ice guiding experience too, but when the opportunity came, I jumped on it. I enjoy climbing a lot and could see a future in becoming a climbing guide.
