Booking Policies


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.

Rate Changes

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

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.
