It is that time again as ISSW (International Snow Science Workshop) is just around the corner. HSUS will have a presence as a sponsor to the DIVA night.

Many guides are starting to look for work and this is a great time to introduce yourself to an HSUS Guide member or Operator.

HSUS is also pleased to announce the new full membership of Valdez Heli Ski Guides in Valdez. VHSG’s went through 2 years as a Prospective member and then had the review process this past season and were voted in as full members to HSUS at the annual spring meeting.  HSUS is please to have Scott Raynor and VHSG’s as full time members.

With the addition of VHSG’s, there are now 3 full members to HSUS from Alaska. The arrival of 3 new operators in Alaska this coming spring, there will be 17 heli ski operators in Alaska for 2013.

We are also pleased to announce, Scott Raynor from VHSG’s is the now the director of the Alaskan Chapter for HSUS. He is a great candidate for this position as his operation is in the heart of Thompson pass and surrounded by 7 different operations there.  You could say, he will have his finger on the pulse. We welcome Scott!

Stay tuned here as more updates will be coming as the snow starts to fly for 2013!
