crashed near Dillon, CO : when the pilot took off from a mountainous ski area, light to moderate snow was falling and the winds were coming up the valley at 5 to 10 kts. During the flight, he encountered an estimated 35 kts upslope wind as he was proceeding on the upwind side of a ridge at an elevation of about 12700ft. With the updraft, he was able to reduce power. The horizon was not visible but he could see the mountain to his left rear area. Just prior the accident, the aircraft was traveling at about 40 kts at 100 to 150 ft AGL. Thepilot stated that while he was still in an updraft with reduuced power, he looked back, no more than 3 to 5 seconds. As he looked forward again, he encountered a wind shiftwhich put him in a downwind, low power situation. Feeling there was insufficient space to turn downhill, he turned uphill, added power and flared. The helicopter touched down hard on steep terrain at about 12500 ft, then became airborne again. It impacted a second time after dropping 15 to 25 ft and came to rest. The tail rotor and tail rotor gearbox separated during the sequence. 3 on board escaped uninjured.
