Although accidents are rare and evacuation is rarer, sometimes it's necessary.


  • The typical helicopter extraction cost from our tenure is $2,000, and for snowcat or snowmobile it's around $1,500. Powder Mountain needs to be able to choose the most suitable vehicle for any extraction based on our assessment of the situation.
  • For an optional $50 Cdn daily charge per person, our insurance covers your costs for transportation from the injury site to the the public highway. It does not cover medical or other expenses.
  • If you do not take this optional insurance and you require evacuation, Powder Mountain reserves the right to charge your evacuation costs to the card used to book the trip.
  • Where several people are booked on one card, and where our insurance is not purchased, that card will be charged with any evacuation cost for the people booked with it.
