Helicopter Assisted Backcountry Tours with Telluride Helitrax

Telluride Helitrax Offers Special Helicopter Assisted Backcountry Touring

Heli-assisted backcountry touring trips are perfect for established skiers/boarders looking to experience a new, hard to reach zone and/or professional guiding in an area they have not been before. These trips are an ideal way to combine helicopter skiing with backcountry touring.

Who Qualifies

In order to embark on a helicopter assisted backcountry touring day with Telluride Helitrax, each person in the group must have their own touring equipment (and know how to use it) and must be proficient at touring. This trip option is perfect for established backcountry tourers with good fitness.



The cost for single drops is calculated by how many people are in the group and the flight time to reach the drop off destination-
1 Guest – $375 plus flight time
2 Guests- $285 per person plus flight time
3 Guests- $260 per person plus flight time
4 Guests- $245 per person plus flight time

Flight time is $150 per minute (total). Each group will have one guide that will suggest drop off locations and touring that makes sense for the ability level of the group and current conditions. The group is certainly welcome to provide ideas for the day or let us know what they would like to ski. Most drop off locations are within five to eight minutes of our take off zone.


If helicopter assisted backcountry touring is of interest to you, please call our office at 970.728.8377 and request to talk to Joe. We will help you through pricing questions, ideas for your day and help you pick the perfect guide.

We hope you can join us on an adventure of a lifetime!
