I fail to see it here. Maybe the heli-skiing is worth the price?? For $179 I expected more than four runs of 2,000 vert a piece. The first two runs were fantastic. The second two were only about 30% pristine. The 70% was down a tracked-out ravine choked with avy debris. We spent most of the day waiting as one skier at a time came down. I guess that is the price to pay for a "taste of the back country". The consensus among the locals in my group was that we would have skied much more fresh at Telluride or Crested Butte that day. From what I saw, Squaw Valley and Jackson have better expert terrain. I won't be back. The views were awesome and the snow quality was excellent. Still not worth the price.
