Heliskiing DOES disturb wildlife in an unimaginable way, but as long as there is money involved many people find it convenient to ignore this fact. There is no place one cannot get to on skis to enjoy the same slopes if they are willing, experienced and committed to the effort involved. Having the money to pay to make life extremely simple and easy is no excuse to pollute the environment and ruin the lives of the very nature people seek to enjoy. Genevan do not allow tourist flight boats to land on Lac Leman or noisy water jet-skis to ruin the lives of those enjoying the Swiss lakes, so why are the animals lives given no consideration? If people are too lazy to get to the regions they want to ski, let them take up a sport they can actually handle - say. golf…. Let them continue and pretty soon they will pay some company to put them on top of the Matterhorn, since that too requires a little effort.
