True, in the case of the Rocks, but be very careful on the Alberta side of them. The mountains in Baffin and en route Alert a different beast altogether. Same with the Tourngats in Labrador, stunning but be careful. Got quite a bit of experience in these, bit of a knee trembler towing a survey bird up and down them contouring at 240ft AGL when the bloody thing on a 180ft line.......
Most scary for me was years ago flying seismic in Alberta dropping a survey crew off at around 10 grand in a Notar. Got nailed by a downdraft as we were climbing up to the pad. VSI was pegged at the stop....finally got spat at the side.The holy [email protected] handles came in handy that day, we were along for the ride....
