You're right, High Mountains Helicopters is the only operator here.

I've gone with them about four times, the last time nearly 20 years ago. They fly to some incredible terrain and I would highly recommend them.

I don't know of any way to get a discount. They're typically fully booked at their normal rate whenever the weather is good enough to fly, so I don't think they discount much. Having said that, years ago they used to have a little-known deal where you could sign on to be a last-minute fill-in if someone else cancelled. They would call you in the morning and if you could be ready to go by the time they were ready to fly, you could get a better deal. I have no idea whether they still do that, but it might be worth a call just to check.

There's also cat-skiing at Grand Targhee. We did that for my wife's birthday a few years ago and had a wonderful time.

I'll vouch for the quality of the cat operation @ Targhee. Best day on skis in my meager 6 seasons.

Two things on Targhee cat skiing. First, it is going away in a season or two. Virtually all of Peaked Mountain will be lift served when the new lifts are done. So if you want to do the cat ski thing, this would be the season. Second, I've had mixed results with the cat skiing at Targhee. When things are good, they are really good. Big fun (although not exactly remote). However, when the cat has not been out in a while, they seem to get revenue hungry & will take folks out even if the snow is kind of crappy. This can lead to a less than satisfying experience. If you sign up for the Targhee Snow Cat, I suggest you keep an eye on conditions & cancel ahead if things look sketchy.
