Shovel, Probe, & Transciever: Includes BCA Tracker2 beacon with harness, BCA shovel, and BCA Stealth 300 probe. All of the products are key components to a safe excursion in avalanche terrain.
Crevasse Rescue Gear
Harness and Carabiner are provided for use while skiing in and around crevasses. Our harnesses come in a variety of sizes and will be sized to each guest during orientation.
Boots are the one item that we can’t provide, we suggest carrying your boots onto the plane.
Marker Sole ID bindings are ISO 5355 (alpine norm/19 mm height) and ISO 9523 boot soles (grip walk/28 mm height). Some touring boots may not work with our bindings! Dynafit/tech bindings are not recommended for heli skiing, and we strongly suggest alpine bindings/alpine boots for heli skiing in AK.
Safety is Our Cornerstone
Majestic Heli Ski has created a culture of safety that colors every aspect of our operation. This starts with our professional guides and staff. Our expert guide team will assess the terrain and conditions and take you to the safest and best possible ski conditions. Plan on a safe, fun and memorable week.
Training & Teamwork
All guests will take part in a general orientation to familiarize you with what to expect during your stay. We will then do hands-on training regarding avalanche and mountain hazards, how to use our safety & rescue gear, companion rescue and skiing protocols. An aircraft briefing will educate you on helicopter procedures and safety.
Snow and weather conditions largely determine where we ski and the terrain often dictates how we move through it. Our guides will keep you informed about weather, terrain hazards, helicopter safety, skiing protocols, snow stability and avalanche hazards throughout each day. We rely on teamwork, and each person has a role in group dynamics and safety.
Helicopter: A-Star B3: The A-Star B3 Helicopter from Airbus is a high-powered machine that is perfect for mountain flying and heli skiing. The A-Star accommodates one pilot, one guide, and up to four guests. Weight restrictions apply and can play a role in determining how groups are structured.
