Confident intermediate to expert ability is required to go heli-skiing. All types of mountain conditions can be expected during your trip. Ultimately snow and weather conditions are out of our control, however our guides will strive to find the best snow on each run. You should be comfortable skiing/riding in most snow conditions including deep powder, heavy powder, hard pack, ice, wind-crust, etc., and able to handle extreme and rapid changes in weather. You must be able to maintain control in a variety of backcountry conditions on a variety of slope angles and aspects and be fit enough to ski massive vertical feet and keep up with the pace of the groups. Please be honest with yourself and your guides about your ability and fitness level, as everyone's safety and enjoyment depend on it. We reserve the right to adjust groups to match ability levels or end a guest's program if they are unable to keep up or pose a danger to themselves or others.
