Eagle Pass requires that all guests are able to ski at an advanced level (black diamond runs). Guests MUST be experienced skiing ALL types of terrain in DEEP POWDER conditions (knee deep) – trees, glades, steeps, chutes, and variable snow conditions. Eagle Pass Heliski does not have any intermediate terrain. Previous Heli, Cat or Ski Touring experience is mandatory.
Refunds will not be given to guests that are unable to competently Heliski due to lack of physical fitness, skill level, or experience. If a guest cannot complete their day due to fitness level or ability, they may be asked to wait in a safe area in the backcountry until lunch is served, or for the remainder of the day.
Heliskiing is a demanding physical activity. It is recommended that guests assess their own fitness level well in advance and prepare themselves accordingly – through on-slope skiing or by undertaking a regular fitness routine.
While we try our best to group skiers and boarders by ability level, this is based on each individual’s perception of their own abilities. Until we have Heliskied with each guest, it is impossible to assess a guest’s true ability. While we can always accommodate a single guest, we require them to have previous backcountry experience. It is always best to book as a complete group of 4 to ensure that everyone skis/boards at the same level.
