BOOKING WITH US IS AS EASY AS 1-2-3

THE BOOKING PROCESS

Our goal is to make the reservations process informative and straightforward. There are two ways to complete a booking: by phone or email.

Let’s talk. Booking online works great for hotel reservations and rental cars, but your heli-ski day deserves a conversation. We like to make sure everyone gets top-notch customer service, and that means hearing your questions and responding to your needs. From there, it’s easy.

First, by phone or email, we answer any of your questions about the program, if your preferred date is available, how many seats you need and who’s on board.

By phone, we take all the relevant details, including credit card information, then your booking is secure and you get a confirmation by email.

Or by email, we send you a link to a simple confirmation form to collect all the important details, then a secure link to pay online. Step one, step two, then your confirmation lands in your inbox – all set!

From there, you just get to wait in anticipation! We’ll stay in touch with some info to prep you for your trip, and we’re always available for as many questions as you have.

Ready when you are!
