SUN VALLEY HELI SKI GENERAL TERMS & CONDITIONS 

Sun Valley Heli Ski (“SVHS”) takes great pride in the Helicopter skiing and riding experiences and exceptional customer service which we provide. In return, we ask that our guests understand that we must make advanced financial and time commitments in order to provide these services. Helicopter skiing and riding is a complex experience.  We ask that you understand that certain elements of the experience are beyond our control, including weather, snow conditions and skier ability levels on a particular trip.

SUN VALLEY HELI SKI WITH KIM REICHHELM PROGRAM

Reservations and Payment

The full purchase price of the Sun Valley Heli Ski with Kim Reichhelm Program requires a $1,500 deposit in order to reserve your reservation. The remaining balance is due upon your arrival in Sun Valley.  Failure to pay the final balance on the due date will result in the cancellation of your reservation and the loss of your deposit. There are no exceptions to this policy and your reservation will be subject to reassignment if the required payments are not met.  

Weigh-In Policy

·      Each guest will be asked to step on the scale at our office prior to skiing, so we can accurately calculate weights and safe grouping.

·      At the elevations we fly to in the mountains, there is an upper limit group and gear weight which cannot be exceeded in order to operate safely.

·      Due to weight limitations, we reserve the right to split your group. Additionally, an individual weighing 240 pounds or more may expect to pay all or part of an extra seat.

Insurance

Sun Valley Heli Ski strongly recommends that all guests carry Trip Cancellation Insurance, Trip Interruption Insurance, Medical Insurance, and Emergency Evacuation Insurance. These insurance types safeguard you against unforeseen mishaps that can occur before or during your heli vacation with us. OUR REFUND AND CANCELLATION POLICIES ARE ABSOLUTE. IF YOU INJURE YOURSELF BEFORE YOU COME OR HAVE CIRCUMSTANCES WHICH CAUSE YOU TO CANCEL YOUR TRIP, YOUR PACKAGE WILL NOT BE REFUNDED BEYOND THE TERMS OF THE ABOVE POLICIES. Depending on the carrier and the policy, such insurance is usually a small fraction of the overall package price and could reimburse you the entire cost of your trip in the event of your cancellation. SVHS recommends using Travel Guard insurance.

 

FULL DAY HELI SKI AND RIDING RUN POLICY

SVHS guarantees its guests 6 runs per day for full day heliskiing. If you do not get in 6 runs, you will receive a refund of $95 per run per person.  If you would like to ski or ride additional runs, we will try to accommodate you, subject to weather, snow conditions, logistics and other matters in SVHS’s sole discretion. Extra runs cost $150 per run per person. SVHS reservations are based on run achievement. If you choose to miss any skiing or riding for any reason, you will be charged the runs achieved by the groups in the field for that day.  In the event that SVHS is unable to provide helicopter skiing services due to weather or any other reason on any given day, whether within or without of SVHS’s control, SVHS will charge each client a $250 fee for that day for additional administrative and other services that will be performed under those circumstances.

AS WITH HELI-SKIING AND RIDING ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, IT IS POSSIBLE THAT ANY HELI SKI AND RIDE PACKAGE COULD BE CANCELLED IN ITS ENTIRETY OR SHORTENED DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER CONDITIONS. IN THIS CASE, REFUNDS ARE BASED UPON THE ABOVE RUN POLICY. THIS CONSTITUTES YOUR REFUND IN ITS ENTIRETY.
