I'm gonna say the same thing about heliskiing in the wasatch. For years a lot of people have been fighting to stop the operation of motorized vehicles(helis) from operating on our nonmotorized (forest service) lands. Most people tour to escape the shit show of resorts and enjoy the peace, tranquility, and satisfaction of "earning your turns". Until you have had a heli land on top you or constantly fly over you or ski down on top you it may be hard for you to understand. Factor in the indescriminatebombing of avvy prone slopes in the name of snow stability testing
Which destroys trees, harrasses nature (golden eagles etc) and weakens the snowpack endangering others and you have a debate that could go on for pages and has for years. WPG is bad for the Wasatch. It isn't like Canada or AK it is a fairly small mountain range with a hell of a lot of pople living close by. Tha forest service has turned a deaf ear to the repeated complaints of local skiers and enviormentalist. WPG has spent and continues tospend a lot of $$$ to influence politicians and others to continue they're operation. They have the ablity to fly away from crowded areas within an hours hike of 7 resorts, but due to fuel costs and ease they repeatedly fly/ ski in their/our backyard.
if you are lucky /blessed you may be able to hit American FK or the Sessions and experience some good skiing without the Wasatch hippies heckleing you.
[Spam] feel free to contact http://www.wasatchpowderskis.com/ cause if it's good you sure as hell want to be riding some kick ass powskis. I'll throw in the Powder cords (wink) [/spam]
Or consider Exum guides or Solitude ski resort provides AT equipment and guided trips to the same areas. The Powmow heli operation is much cheaper and operates in a less crowded area.
Hope I explained things a little better For what it's worth I go heli skiing every winter, but it's poor mans heli skiing, One ride in to a yurt a week of skinning/skiing and one ride out.
