…and a Happy New Year to you all!, whenever the date may fall for you and your kind. Here’s some memorable times from last season, a day out with Whistler Heli on April 4th, 2011.

Planks underfoot are the infamous DPS Wailer 112RPs, and yes, they be Pures. Drop a line below if you’d like to demo a pair in Whistler (hint, hint).
