Your guides are the most integral part of your heli skiing experience and work very hard to ensure you have the trip of a lifetime. A respectable gratuity is greatly appreciated and is also very important to your guide’s revenue stream. A gratuity of 10%-15%/$100.00 a day (per person; for your guide) of your package cost is a great reference point as how much to tip your guide. Also please extend the appropriate gratuity to the lodge staff and to any staff member you would like to show your appreciation.

Please note that access to a bank or cash machine may be difficult, so you may want to plan ahead. A cash tip is the preferred currency (though credit cards are accepted) and will make your guide extremely happy.
