Skiing is fun. But skiing is gnarly when you jump out of a helicopter first! And Essex Prescott from Hayden, Idaho does it for a living! 


Prescott calls Schweitzer Mountain his home base and his two teammates Leo Zuckerman and Dylan Siggers, make up "Team Vacation." In September they will be looking to compete in the Call Up contest for the World Heli Challenge in New Zealand. The Call Up contest looks for teams with great skiing, creativity and filming ability to compete for some Big Mountain Lines in the Southern Alps. 


If you like what you see, and want to see Team Vacation compete, give them a vote! You can vote daily until August 28th, and the team with the most votes gets to go to New Zealand to compete for 9 days!
