Default Heli-Boarding Advice

Hey Joe,
We give free heliboard and heliski advice and recommendations.

We have been to Snowwater, as well as many other heli operators - we represent about 50 locations, essentially all of them.

We have a free article on the Top 10 Things to Consider in a Heliski/board Trip, which may help you.

Snowwater excels at the following:
Snow amounts - surprisingly, they get coastal influence
Tree riding
Small groups (3 groups of 4)
Small Lodge - 12 guests max
Night life (not kidding, they like to party)
Catski/board backup - So no dreaded 'down days'. They are very good at seamlessly switching from chopper to cat and back, too!
Vertical - many packages include unlimited vertical, and they are psyched to rack it up!

Room for Improvement:
Travel is not as easy as some (3.5 hr. drive from Spokane, WA)
Not the least expensive
Snow can be heavier than some at times

You can see our summary on Heliboard.com
And read my recent interview with co-owner Maria here

Regarding the board, most operators carry Burton Fish or Malolo. Call or email them to find out what they have for use.

I am happy to answer questions and/or research the best trips for you, or anyone else.
Best,
tj
