Terms and Conditions
Run length varies depending on the terrain and snow conditions. Our exclusive terrain offers runs that vary between 2000 and 2500 vertical feet of treeless skiing in sheltered basins, bowls and wide rolling mountain flanks through to steep and gnarly chutes.
Heli-skiing / boarding takes place in an alpine environment, above the tree line and is weather dependent. When booking, we suggest you register with us for daily heli-skiing as soon as you arrive in the area and allow some flexibility in your schedule. Snow in the backcountry can vary from fine powder to crud to beautiful spring corn. Check with us for the latest conditions.
