Heli-Assisted Touring

Our guided Heli-Assisted Touring program offers a unique and economical way to experience prime backcountry touring terrain in the North Cascades. The early-morning helicopter flight straight to the goods eliminates the long energy-draining approach - and we land you on a peak for a warm-up run right off the bat. After touring and shredding powder all day you get a helicopter flight back to the Heli Barn. Our guides have unmatched knowledge of the terrain and snowpack to fully maximize your day of backcountry alpine touring or splitboarding. This trip must be booked by at least two guests. Proficiency and experience in backcountry touring is required.

$650 per person plus tax (save $50 when you book two days and $150 when you book three days)

This trip includes:

  • Certified guides
  • Small groups of four with one guide
  • Helicopter access to and from the field each day
  • As many daily ascents and descents as possible depending on group objectives, fitness, ability, weather and snow conditions
  • Safety equipment - BCA transceiver, shovel, probe, and backpack (if needed)
  • Delicious heli-ready sack lunch prepared by the Mazama store
