Cheap Heli Skiing Canada – Lowest Price
The lowest price heli skiing is going to be a resort – based operator. These heli skiing operators cater to first-timers. The number of runs and the vertical feet are very low, compared with destination heli skiing operators. These bucket-lister offerings require safety briefings every day. The first run is usually very mellow, to make sure everyone can hang. This is often combined with a long lunch, and quitting early. Here are some of the cheapest heli skiing options in 2023 (as in lowest price).
|Operator||Price ($US)||Runs||$/Run||Extra Runs|
|Eagle Pass DAY Program||$1,400||7||$200||$92|
|Silverton Mtn. Colorado, US||$283||1||$283|
|Phantom Heli (Whistler)||$1,473||Unlimited (8-12)||$147||$0|
Cheap Heli Skiing Canada – Best Value
Calculating the cheapest heli skiing based on the amount of skiing, or value, is more challenging.
There are two pricing models in Canada: Unlimited Vertical and Base Price Plus Extra Vertical. So the more vertical you get, the less expensive the former and the more expensive the latter becomes. And the price of extra vertical, and the vertical feet included also vary.
Further, the relative value requires considering all of the other important factors in choosing a heli skiing operator and trip. Those include location, terrain, snow quality and quantity, number of groups per helicopter, the size of the groups, lodging, food and amenities, travel, guides and safety. Read our blog for more.
Here is an example of the analysis I did for a client who was trying to determine which pricing model fit them best:
|Base||Feet Included||Extra Vert / K||0||80,000||90,000||100,000||110,000||120,000||130,000|
|Northern Esc. Unlimited||$8,819||Unlimited||$-||$8,819||$8,819||$8,819||$8,819||$8,819||$8,819||$8,819|
I hope it’s obvious that the calculations can get complex. But, I love doing it. Let me know if I can help you choose your next heli skiing adventure.
