Booking Policies

Trip Confirmation

Confirmation of your trip will be sent by email within 48-hours of receiving the booking form. Included with the confirmation is pertinent information and a detailed itinerary of your trip package. Liability release and acknowledgement of risk waivers must be signed by each participant prior to any trip activities.

Pay as you Play Policy

Our pay as you play policy enables participants to book a trip with APD without reserving any heli time. You simply add half day, full day, lift tickets, and other activities as you go based on the weather and current snow conditions. This policy applies to all APD Packages.

Please note that the minimum number of laps charged per day will be 4 even if you can only fly 1 or 2 laps due to weather or conditions.

All listed rates are subject to change based on current jet fuel prices and the amount of flight time used per day.


A 50% per person deposit is required to hold a reservation for your group. We accept Visa, Mastercard, check, wire transfer, or cash. For half-day and full-day trips, the remaining balance is due on the trip date. For weeklong & weekend packages the remaining balance is due at the end of your trip.

Cancellation Policy

A full refund will be given for cancellations 30 days or more prior to a trip departure date. For any package reservation cancelled less than 30 days the deposit becomes non-refundable but a credit is applied for future trips.

In the event there are no-fly days due to bad weather, high avalanche conditions, or mechanical issues with the helicopters, we will issue you a full refund for unused flight time. Often on no-fly days we can still access the backcountry at our local ski area. You may also choose to add other guided activities with our company.

Travel Insurance

Alaska Powder Descents reserves the right to cancel or change any trip due to inadequate sign-ups, weather conditions, client’s not meeting physical & skill level requirements, safety concerns, and any other reason not listed above. In such a case, a full or partial refund is given, but APD is not responsible for additional expenses incurred such as non-refundable airline tickets, and non-package meals & lodging.

APD recommends purchasing traveler’s insurance, medical insurance, and researching the various elements of risk involved with helicopter skiing & snowboarding activities prior to signing the liability release forms.

Participants must be 18 years or older unless accompanied by a parent or guardian.
