Who says heli skiing is a young man’s sport? Last year, CMH set a heli skiing world record when 94-year-old Gordon Precious joined them at their Cariboos location for a few days of bluebird skies and gently rolling powder runs.
Just days before his 95th birthday, the Ontario native who has skied all over the world cruised down a run called “Nectar” in the Cariboos with legendary guide Roko Koell. His flowing style and boundless enthusiasm give away nothing about his age.
“It’s so inspirational to see the unbridled joy that skiing can bring to people at any age,” said Gordon’s grandson Trevor Young. “Whether it’s my kids learning to ski at Caledon on the 100 meter Ontario hill or a 95-year-old who has skied most of the world, it’s still that same exhilarating delight of careening down a mountain on snow.”
Congratulations Gordon! Hope to see you up there next year.
