Free if you're flexible

From Silverton Mountain's email list: Looking for a Few Heli Skiers- We would like to bring in the heli for avalanche control on a more regular (but still limited) basis. It is the best tool for quickly opening new terrain, so if you would like to be added to our heli ski list let us know. The heli drops are usually on short notice as we don't know exactly when we will want to conduct heli control work. The heli drops are obviously lots of fun and the least expensive way you will heli ski in the lower 48 at only $150 per drop.

As far as we know there are no other places in the lower 48 where you can pay by the run. Most drops occur across the valley from the lift in Zone 4, and occasionally when all the stars line up we also drop the lines off of Storm Peak in Zones 5 & 6. Please email the best number to reach you on short notice (evening number). Helicopter services provided for Silverton Mountain by independent contractors.

If you have your own group and want to book a private ship for just your crew we can also do that at a fixed hourly rate and can usually try to book that in advance. The heli holds 4-5 people, so making a group in multiples of 4 is a good way to go.
