Is Heliskiing a Leading Economic Indicator?

Heliskiing demand is an excellent leading indicator of the economy. Although traditional economic signals are mixed and uncertain, heliskiing bookings are bullish on 2012.
John Forrest, GM Northern Escape Heli-Skiing, says, “ Our reservations for next year are very strong as well. We are currently up 100% on reservations to date over last year. Most of the increase is actually in our Classic program while the high end Private bookings seem to be lagging a bit, but still up 50% over last year.”
