Day Prior Confirmation
The day prior to your first available heli-ski day, it is necessary to confirm you’re skiing with us by phone, email, or in person. You must do this prior to 2:00 pm MST.
This is to confirm that you are still planning on skiing with us and there have been no changes to your plans. In addition, we will provide you with the most up-to-date conditions and if there are any changes to the schedule for the day. If you have any changes or questions regarding your reservation, please contact us at 970.728.8377 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Day Of Confirmation
On the morning of your heli-ski day, you are required to call the Helitrax status phone line (970.728.0688) at 7:30 am. Occasionally this time will vary, but we will inform you of any changes when you confirm the day prior to your trip. This call is dedicated to important info about your day.
Your Ski Day
Dress & Gear
Please come dressed as you would to ski or ride all day on the ski resort (please bring your own ski or snowboard boots). You may leave any extra gear, clothes or valuables at our office and headquarters in the Peaks Resort. We will supply you with an avalanche airbag pack. There is room in this pack for 1-2 small items only.
Our headquarters is just outside the south (spa) entrance to the Peaks Resort in Mountain Village. Our Physical Address: 136 Country Club Drive, Mountain Village, CO 81435
(Mountain Village is connected to the town of Telluride via a free 15-minute gondola ride. The two towns are very pedestrian friendly, with easy access to one another. If you intend to drive to Mountain Village, please allow yourself plenty of time for parking and riding the intercept gondola.)
Meet & End Times
Normally we meet at 8:30am, but this can vary. The office will verify this when you confirm with us the day prior to your trip. Meet time can vary for a number of reasons so please make note of the meet time for your day on the status line the morning of your trip. We expect you to be prompt, but request that you refrain from arriving early. A typical day ends between 2:00pm and 4:00pm back at the Peaks Resort.
Gratuity is greatly appreciated. If you feel the Helitrax team provided you with an exception experience, the suggested tip is five to ten percent of your trip cost per guest (i.e. $60 to $130 for a single day of heli-skiing).
