Happy New Year! Starting Jan. 1st, 2018, the Powderbird Helicopter Skiing Operations Report will be located on Powderbird.com. This Operations Report blog will remain live for archival purposes, however will not be updated moving forward.

With current conditions in the backcountry, Powderbird is delaying commercial operations until conditions improve. We are hoping to see a pattern change later in the month that will bring in the storms we need. A weak system this weekend should bring about 4 inches of snow to the Cottonwoods and another one later next week which is a step in the right direction. We will keep you posted on our plan to begin commercial operations. If you have any questions give us a call at 801-742-2800.

Welcome back to winter and we hope everyone is looking forward to the season ahead. The first half of December we will be conducting our annual guide training where we will be practice our medical, avalanche, and rescue skills in preparation of the upcoming season. We plan on beginning commercial operations December 15th, conditions permitting. Once we begin commercial operations this blog will be updated daily with information on where we skied that day and notes on conditions in the backcountry as well as where we intend to ski the following day. The blog is intended to be used as a information and planning tool to better inform the multiple user groups enjoying the Wasatch backcountry. We hope everyone has a great season and stay safe. We look forward to seeing you and if you have any questions give us a call at 801-742-2800.

Today 4-9-2017 we did not operate. The Wasatch received a good amount of snow over the last couple of days. Tomorrow 4-10-2017 we will be using our last earned Monday to operate within the Tri-Canyon Area. We earn Mondays to operate within the TCA if we give up a Saturday of operations in the TCA and throughout our permitted season we can potentially earn 3 Mondays. We will be skiing in multiple drainages and you can expect to see us in Cardiff, Days, Silver, and Mineral Fork. You may also see us in American Fork. If you have any questions give us a call at 801-742-2800.
