Let it snow.
We can safely operate in a variety of weather conditions, from cloudless blue sky to variable and under freshly falling snow. Different conditions will often mean different terrain choice, and we will do our best to find the best snow quality whatever the weather. We have plenty of skiing in gladed and treed areas of the subalpine forest that provide excellent visibility reference for those grey and snowy days. Although for many people, a blue-sky day is how they picture perfection, the snow is just as good (and sometimes better!) on those stormy and overcast days too.
An important note on forecasts: they’re unreliable! We’re not kidding. Weather conditions in the mountains are prone to rapid and extreme changes, and often unfold very differently than the forecast predicted. It is not uncommon to see different weather conditions than what was predicted only the night before! For those seeking the perfect day to secure their booking, it is important to be prepared for the unexpected. Mother Nature will always keep us guessing.
Because weather can improve (or worsen) dramatically in the course of an hour or two, we ask all guests to meet us in the Heli Lounge in Winston Lodge at the appropriate start time regardless of how things look first thing in the morning. The decision to go or postpone the day will not be made immediately, until we allow some time for it to change.
If heavy fog, high winds, or other poor weather prohibits safe flight, you will either roll your vertical for that day into the subsequent day(s), or we will attempt to reschedule your reservation for another day within your holiday. If this is not possible, full refunds apply to complete cancellations, or partial refunds apply for not completing your vertical allotted.
