Heli-skiing in Canada, the giant twin turbine Huey passed right over our heads quite close to the mountain and the photographer snapped a great picture! Definitely a "wow" moment!

"I was roped in on the side of the heli and when I gave the thumbs up they unhooked me and I took a leap forward with a view that I have never seen in my 16 years of snowboarding, and probably will never see again.
I have to say it was the most exciting thing I have ever done in snowboarding. I was a little worried about the downdraft from the heli blades, but when I saw the landing my mind was clear and ready. From my view it looked about 50-60 feet. I hit the snow pretty hard and rode down the hill to have the heli pick me up asking if I wanted to do a second. Once was enough
.......
.......
Three weeks later I got the photos back. As soon as I saw the photo I started getting the shakes. I was more scared looking at the photo than I was doing it. The heli drop was supposed to be about 50 feet"
