Our goal at STHS is to deliver an exceptional experience that soars above your expectations. However; freezing rain, extreme avalanche/weather conditions or unforeseen circumstances could have you visiting Revelstoke Mountain Resort instead of our tenure. Our operation averages 2-3 “Down Days” per month. If we are unable to take guests heli-skiing on their scheduled day, we have the fairest refund policy in the industry.

If rebooking is not possible, you will be given a 100% refund. *STHS will NOT provide ski passes to RMR

  • If you only ski 1 run and rebooking is not an option, you will be charged a flat rate depending on the package type.

IF WE CANNOT FLY

Every multiday package with Selkirk Tangiers includes a certain amount of guaranteed vertical meters. If the guaranteed vertical target is not reached during your visit due to inclement weather, mechanical helicopter reasons or avalanche conditions, you will be refunded at a rate of $165 plus tax per 1,000 vertical meters. We do not refund guests who do not reach the guaranteed vertical amount due to poor skiing ability or fitness, illness or injury. If you choose not to ski on any given day during your package, you will still be charged for the minimum meters skied by your group.

Guarantee by Package

Package Vertical Meters Included Vertical Meters Guaranteed
Classic 3 Day – 3 Rotations 12,000 meters 9,000 meters
Classic 5 Day 23,500 meters 20,000 meters
Classic 6 Day 27,500 meters 23,500 meters

When calculating the amount of vertical you would be refunded for if you were unable to ski the vertical included with your package for the reasons listed above, use the “guaranteed vertical” amount. For example:

  • You were booked on a 3 Day Classic Package including 12,000 vertical meters and a guarantee of 9,000 vertical meters.
  • Due to inclement weather, mechanical helicopter reasons, or avalanche hazard, you were only able to ski 8,000 vertical meters over the length of your package.
  • Therefore the difference between the guaranteed 9,000 vertical meters on your package and what you skied was 1,000 vertical meters. You would be refunded for $165 plus tax.

Conditional Credit Policy

In rare cases, circumstances can arise that impact the total amount of vertical that can be skied during a heli ski trip with Selkirk Tangiers. In these situations, STHS will provide a conditional credit to guests. The additional credit must be left on account and is applicable for future heli skiing trips. It is provided if, for reasons of mechanical breakdown, inclement weather or avalanche conditions, you have skied less than:

Package Vertical Metres Credit Refund
Classic 3 Day 7,200 metres $500
Classic 5 Day 14,000 metres $800
Classic 6 Day 16,500 metres $950

This credit is in addition to the vertical meter refund. This will be kept on account with STHS and can be used towards future STHS heliski package bookings within the next two years. After two years the credit will expire and is non-refundable. The credit is also non-transferable and applies to the person who made the original booking only.

If this guarantee is not reached during your group’s visit due to inclement weather, mechanical helicopter reasons or avalanche conditions, each group will be refunded at a rate of $6,160 plus tax per hour (or portion of an hour) for Private 205 packages. We do not refund groups who do not reach their guaranteed flight time due to poor skiing ability or fitness, illness or injury. If a guest chooses not to ski on any given day during the package, the groups will still be charged for the flight time used by the other members of the group.

  • Due to inclement weather, mechanical helicopter reasons, or avalanche hazard, you were only able to fly 2.8hrs for the duration of your package.
  • Therefore the difference between the guaranteed 3.0hrs flight time on your package and what you actually flew was 0.2hrs. Your group would be refunded 0.2hrs x $6,160.00, so $1,232.00 + tax.
