Why do we use vertical feet?

„How much skiing will I get“ is a frequent question we hear.  Almost every heliskiing operation in the worls uses vertical feet and there is a reason for that.

For the last 5 years in operation we had flight time included in the packages. The flight time was measured by the Hobbs meter in the helicopter that starts running when the helicopter lifts from the ground. Our experience shows us that using flight time is not guest friendly and total nonsense to be honest. It is confusing, impossible for skiers to keep track of, and it doesn´t tell you how much skiing you will get for the money you´ve spent. 

By using vertical feet we want to gurantee certain amount of skiing, no matter what. Decisions made by guides, change in weather or othere reasons that might cause more flight time will not affect the amount of skiing that you have already paid for. Vertical feet is easy to understand and with today´s technology it is easy for skiers to keep track of their own skiing and make sure that they get what they pay for.
