Helicopter skiing returns to Lake Tahoe

"The operation will be limited to a maximum of 16 guests per day with a ratio of one guide per four guests. The cost structure will be based upon flight time rather than vertical feet allowing like-minded guests to customize their experience based on their budget, their desire to ski/ride as much vertical as possible and/or their desire to explore a variety of different zones. Full day trips will start at $899 per person."


It's going to be based on flight time because ferrying four groups to and from the ski zones from the airport is going to burn a lot of hobbs time. Hopefully they can set up some remote fuel stops.

I spoke with Dave a couple of years ago and he seemed like a nice guy.  I hope he makes it, but it's really tough when you have to fly far horizontally.

Yeah, that's kinda what I was wondering.  Where is their permit area & what peaks will they be able to access from Truckee?

I really don't know, but their cat permit area is behind Squaw. That has to be at least 10 nautical from the airport.

The heli ski operation is closed and no longer in operation.
