EpicQuest and Sun Valley Heli Ski Guides Open Early

Heavy snowfall in the Rocky Mountains has prompted the early launch of operations by EpicQuest and Sun Valley Heli Ski Guides. EpicQuest has opened its entire 750,000-acre ski area in Idaho for skiing and snowboarding 10 days earlier than expected. 

Skiers and snowboarders can take part in a day of heli-skiing (up to seven runs) including lunch and hotel transfers from $1,100. For those with more time on the slopes, the Escape package bundles in two days of heli-skiing in the mountains surrounding Sun Valley, one day skiing at Sun Valley Resort and four nights lodging from $3,200. The Classic Sun Valley package includes five nights at the historic Sun Valley Lodge, two days of heli-skiing and two day passes at Sun Valley Resort from $4,750.

Guests can stay at the Smoky Mountain Lodge, the only fly-in heli-ski lodge in the Lower 48 states, offers a more private experience just west of Sun Valley. While guests can tear up the untracked snow in the surrounding mountains by day, they return to the six-bedroom lodge at night and meals prepared by a private chef. Packages start at $4,800.
