Helicopter assisted backcountry touring provides an opportunity for experienced backcountry ski tourers to get further into the backcountry and ski in harder to reach zones.
Our guides can help arrange the day’s plans based on the group’s ski objectives and goals, snow conditions, avalanche hazard, skier experience, and weather outlook. Helicopter assisted backcountry touring is only for established and experienced backcountry ski tourers. Skiers need to have all their own equipment (including all touring gear) and be physically fit to tour for a day.
The ski day starts at the Helicopter staging area first thing. Your guide will go over the day’s plan, do a quick safety briefing and make sure you have all the appropriate gear for the day. Depending on your ski plans, your drop-off location will likely be a peak or ridgetop. After your first ski run, you will put your skis on to obtain your next objective and so on. At the end of the day, you will likely ski back to the valley or get picked up by the Helicopter
