Advanced reservations with a deposit ($400 per day, per person) are required to
secure a seat on your preferred day. Call at (307) 733-3274
for reservations. Full payment and any outstanding balance
is collected on the day that you go heli-skiing. Any reservations made less than 14 days in advance will be charged the full amount for the day ($1250/day, per person).
Form of Payment: Payments
may be made by cash, traveler checks or major credit card.
Personal checks are accepted only fourteen
days in advance.
Rental Powder Skis: Powder skis (the new Rossignol Super S7) are available for rent right in our
office. You may reserve
them when you make your heli-ski reservations or when you
check in with us on arrival to JH. Arrive at our office 10
minutes early with your boots to have the bindings adjusted.
Confirmation/Check-in: We would like you
to check in with our reservation desk (307-733-3274) as soon
as you arrive
in Jackson Hole so that we may update you on current conditions,
weather forecasts and what to expect. If you plan to be arriving
late, please let us know. Our office is open from 11:00 am
to 5:00 pm daily. Please give us your local telephone number
at this time should we need to contact you in the event that
weather prohibits us from flying.
Teton Springs Lodge & Spa
Guests: If you are on one of the Teton Springs Lodge & Spa
packages, your first reserved day is the day following your
first nights stay at the Lodge.
Because heli-skiing is so weather dependent, you must participate
each day that we can fly. Lift serviced skiing at Grand Targhee
or the JH Mountain Resort will only be on any non-flyable
weather days. If you choose not to participate for any reason
and the helicopter flies that day, you will be charged the
full amount for that day.
Cancellations and Obligations:
made 14 days in advance of a reserved ski day will receive
a complete refund less a $50 per person/per
day administrative fee.
- Any cancellations made less than
14 days in advance of a reserved ski day will result in
loss of deposit ($400
per person/per day).
- Any cancellations made less than 24 hours in advance of a reserved day will loose the full amount of the day ($1250 per person). It is not the responsibility of HMH to remind you of your reservation. It is the responsibility of the guest to be on time (9:00am) on their reserved day. No credit will be issued in the event of a no-show.
- Any requested changes to a
reservation date, if feasible for the reservationists,
will be charged a $50 per person/per
day administrative fee.
- If HMH is unable to deliver a
reserved day for any reason, we will try to roll your reservation

available day. If we are fully booked and are unable to accommodate
you, a full refund (less a $20 credit card processing
fee) will be given. You have no obligation in the event of a
day cancelled by us due to weather.
- Due to the fact that heli-skiing is very dependent on the weather, we sometimes get cut short by weather. In the event of a day cut short by weather, snow conditions or something beyond our control you will be charged as follows: 1 run - $495, 2 runs - $670, 3 runs - $830, 4 runs - $990, 5 runs - $1150
Weather delays: You have no obligation
in the event of a day cancelled by us due to weather. However,

any other activities you might choose without obligation.
