Terms and Conditions
We ask all of our guests to thoroughly read the information supplied on our website in addition to calling or emailing to ask any questions before signing-up for a heli ski trip.
Individuals or groups can purchase Guaranteed Reservations for skiing on specific dates on a first come, first served basis. Reservations require a 50% per seat deposit with full payment due 60 days prior to your reservation date.
Credit and Refund Policy
The Majestic Heli Ski seven day package includes 90,000 vertical feet of skiing. If you fall short of 90,000 vertical feet of skiing during your visit due to inclement weather, or a mechanical breakdown you will be credited at a rate of 100% on the price/dollar amount of your package, or refunded at a rate of 50% on the price/dollar amount of your package. For example; if you skied 45,000 vertical feet (because of no-fly days/weather or a mechanical) you would receive a 45,000 vertical feet credit, (which is equal to 50% of your package cost towards a future trip in this example), or a 50% refund (which is equal to 25% of your package cost in this example) on the 45,000 vertical feet not skied.
Credit and refund values are based upon the original purchase price of your trip and are a fixed value based on that original dollar amount, and that dollar amount will be applied to any future trip credit or refund.
Your credit is valid for up to the next 3 years; the next 3 heli seasons.
The same credit and refund percentages/dollar amounts stated above are used for our three day package (30,000 vertical feet) and our five day package (60,000 vertical feet). Private packages are based upon the Hobbs Hour Meter (flight time). 15 hours is the flight time for our private packages with 8 hours being the guaranteed flight time. The same credit and refund percentages stated above are used for our private packages based on the 8 hours of guaranteed flight time.
Snowcat skiing is included in the price of all of our packages. There is no substitute for heli skiing, and this is not intended as one, but our snowcat may allow us to ski on days when the weather prevents helicopter skiing. The amount of vertical skied while snowcat skiing will be applied towards the vertical of your package.
Purchasing additional Vertical
Once you reach the vertical feet of your package you have the option to purchase additional vertical feet at the price of $50.00 per 1000 vertical feet. For example; an additional 10,000 vertical feet would cost $500.00. A minimum of 4 guests (per helicopter/group) is required as well as a minimum amount of vertical feet (to be determined at the time you which to purchase). Additional restrictions may also apply. Please note that the additional vertical price is just that, this is not the price for a day of skiing, if you show up early, or want to extend the length of your package. We will never charge you additional vertical without your prior knowledge and terms will be stated before any additional vertical.
