Plan Your Trip

The policy details you should know in advance of your Alaskan mountain adventure with CPG

What you need to know before your heli-ski adventure with CPG

We may be renowned the world over for our incredible heli-skiing terrain, but it's our attention to every detail of our guests' stay with us that truly sets us apart. We do everything we can to accommodate our guests' needs, changes, unforeseen mishaps and cancellations. Due the lead times required to effectively manage helicopter contracts and the costs associated with hospitality and guiding, cancellations are difficult to accomodate. We strongly recommend purchasing trip insurance. (See recommendation)

Payments and Deposits
To book your reservation with Chugach Powder Guides we require a 25% deposit for Single Days, Packages and Charter reservations (90 days prior to your first ski date the remaining balance is due). The deposit and a signed tour participant contract is required to confirm your reservation. Failure to pay the final balance by the due date may result in the cancellation of your reservation. CPG accepts all major credit cards, wire transfers, Paypal and checks. Please contact our office for any information you need to make a payment.

Refund Rates are subject to the terms specified in the customer contract. Refunds are only issued when you do not attain the minimum flight hour or vertical foot guarantee of your trip for the following reasons: CPG does not achieve the Hobbs or Vertical Feet due to inclement or unsafe flying weather, a helicopter mechanical issue, or extraordinary safety concerns as defined by CPG. No refunds are issued in part or in whole for unused days due to late arrival, early departure or any other reason. No refunds are issued for unsatisfactory weather or snow conditions. No refunds are issued for missed skiing due to skiing ability, fitness, equipment failure, or personal choice. If a skier becomes injured, ill or requests to leave the field prematurely for any reason, no refund will be issued.
