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 $100.00-$125.00 a day (per person; for your guide) is a reference as how much to tip your guide. Also please extend the appropriate gratuity to the lodge staff/server/chef/bartender/ground crew ($15.00 a day per person as a reference).

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.
