Bucket List Publications Makes A Bucket List Reader’s Dream Come True

Brian Bailey, what is your number one bucket list item? What is the one thing you’d love to experience more than anything else in the world? Lets make it come true!

Brian submitted his bucket list to Bucket List Publications a week ago and it all seemed over the top. He is a true adventurous spirit, including bucket list items such as canoeing the Yukon river from White Horse to Dawson City Landing, attending the Pukkelpop music festival in Belgium, and a cross Canada tour. As I read his list, I wanted to meet him; I wanted to be his friend; and more importantly, I wanted to make his dreams come true. The top item on his list was heli skiing. I couldn’t even put heli skiing on my bucket list because I’m just not that capable when it comes to skiing. I mean, it seems like something only stunt men do in the movies. What type of person has the ability to ski through wide-open glaciers, high alpine bowls, and massive old growth forests? When I read that heli skiing was his biggest dream, I wondered if he was actually capable of doing it now and I needed to know more.

I emailed Brian with curiosity, asking him questions like, “Are you a professional skier?” “When did your passion for skiing start?” and “If you could go heli skiing, would you have the physical ability/endurance?” His answers and his location fueled the fire in me to make his dream come true.

But where do I start with all of this? How do I go about making this happen? I researched heli skiing opportunities in the area and watched, in awe, several heli skiing videos. One company emerged above them all. Situated in Revelstoke, British Columbia, labelled “The heli-skiing capital of the world” by The New York Times, Selkirk Tangiers Heli Skiing is the ultimate winter destination. For over three decades, their exclusive half-a-million acres (200,000 hectares) of terrain in the Selkirk and Monashee Mountains have lured skiers and snowboarders from around the world. Their tenure has over 200 established runs with countless options for exploring the powder playground.They are in the business of making dreams and bucket lists come true!

I contacted Selkirk Tangiers and after some negotiations and planning, Brian, along with a friend, Kevin, is going to live his powder dreams with Selkirk Tangiers Heli Skiing in British Columbia, Canada.

On March 6th, Brian will arrive at The Sutton Place Hotel for three nights stay. He’ll be skiing at the Revelstoke Mountain Resort on the 7th and heli-skiing with Selkirk Tangiers on the 8th. The Sutton Place Hotel is located at the base area at Revelstoke Mountain Resort. Every suite offers outstanding views across the Columbia River to the Monashee Mountains. Revelstoke Mountain Resort boasts North America’s greatest vertical at 1,713 metres (5,620 ft). They also offer 3,121 acres of fall line skiing, 13 areas of gladed terrain, and phenomenally groomed terrain. Revelstoke Mountain Resort is also the only resort world-wide to offer lift, cat, heli, and backcountry skiing from one village base. They simply offer the best snow in the mountains and make sure you have the best possible time out there.

In cooperation with Selkirk Tangiers, Bucket List Publications is helping others live each day to the fullest and making their most burning desires come true.

  2. Wow, really thinking about my bucket list now…but how to prioritize…i want to see the polar bears, the northern lights, puffins, want to publish a book, take photography lessons, care for more abandoned or abused animals (esp rabbits and guinea pigs), I think but am not sure that I want to be in another play worried that my ability to remember lines and directions are not still intact, I want a ride in a blimp. Funny thing, I thought my list would be short,, but once I started typing I realized my list is great and long and will keep me entertained for years to come. You’re doing a great thing here Leslie. In in the words dedicated to my adventure muse I say Mel Torme….see my blog if you want find ou thow Mel torme changed my life, and that I am passing that spirit to the next generation.


  3. Heli-skiing has always looked awesome, but I’m definitely way too terrified to try any kind of heli- snow sport! What an amazing entry – it’s so nice to read something like this, and it’s great that it turned out to be such a doable thing once you looked into it. I hope we get to read about his experience! Cheers!
