Unlimited Vertical Heli Skiing Options

When Is Unlimited Vertical Heli-Skiing a Good Idea?


Unlimited Vertical Heli-Skiing is priced higher than base plus or pay as you go.  When is it worth it?

The answer depends on the prices (unlimited price and base price + extra vertical price), conditions, skiing pace (including group size and number of groups), the weather and the season.     

Later in the season the weather is better and the days are longer.  Further to the East, helicopters fly more often.  

You may be surprised at the break-even points!

At the Extremes:

The lowest price base + operator is less expensive unless you ski over 200K vertical! 

The highest base + becomes more expensive than unlimited vertical at 120K vertical.

The Average

The average base + becomes more expensive than unlimited vertical at 140K vertical. 

Extra vertical rates range from $40 to $60 Can. per 1,000 vertical.  So depending on the extra vertical rate, you may never hit the break even.
