I've never been heli-skiing before. Should I go?

Most people who have been skiing at resorts at an advanced intermediate level or better are ready to heli-ski or ride. You should be comfortable riding blue to black runs in all conditions. You also need to be able to side-step, traverse, kick-turn and control your speed at all times. Experience skiing in deep snow is also VERY helpful, as well as being fit enough to ski multiple days in a row if you are on a multi-day program.
