The Greatest Place on Earth
This is the greatest place I've ever been, shared with the greatest people I could ever share it with, my brothers. Heli-skiing in New Zealand was a childhood dream come true. We were raised on the white stuff, to love the outdoors, the joy of the climb and the thrill of the descent. It was a lapis-blue day, the temperature just below freezing, the ever so subtle breeze brushing the mountain peaks. The helicopter made laps all day, time taken out only for a gourmet picnic lunch of hot soup, assorted cakes and coffee on a pristine high alpine meadow. We have skied all over the world, but this trip will remain forever in our memory as the greatest we've ever taken.
