Hi Guys

The Second Great Coppermine Heli-bike!
Who's In

Date is more or less confirmed now.
Same as last year. Suitable for a wider range of riders of grade 3 and up.
We do this trip for those of you who would not normally have it in you for the full Coppermine loop and if you have never done the Coppermine at all, then this is a great way to get a look!
The ride down is about 40 minutes of bliss! Or if you are not up to Grade 3, then you can take the Grade 2+ option back down the Dun Mountain trail.

Cost is $90 per person
