Itinerary at a Glance
Intro to Powder Package:
Board the complimentary shuttle to the resort in Blue River where you'll have the chance to unpack, familiarize yourself with the lodge and its amenities, and get fitted for your complimentary equipment. You’ll also attend to some official business before dinner, with a waiver signing and mandatory safety meeting.
On Day 1 there will be a safety briefing in preparation for the powder days ahead. Guests are encouraged to join in on the free stretch class before breakfast to stay limber and prepared for unlimited vertical.
For the first day, you will have the opportunity to familiarize yourself with the snow conditions using a snowcat for uplifts instead of a helicopter. Fully certified ski instructors will help you build skill and confidence in all types of terrain with private lessons before moving on to helicopter skiing.
Each day, you'll depart for skiing at 8:30am. Some groups will leave by helicopter, while others will be shuttled to a staging area by van, to get you closer to the best snow with minimal delay. Then it’s all about the powder, with a packed lunch enjoyed in the backcountry.
With live music in the Silver Buckle lounge and a host of relaxing options on the resort, there are evening activities for all tastes. Friday nights are a special celebration for our guests and a chance for us to hand out the “Skier of the Week” award.
Off the snow, you’ll find every luxury, for body and soul, in the Blue River Resort. Experience helicopter skiing as it was meant to be.
