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.
