Today we had no operations due to lingering weather. Tomorrow 2-17-2015 we will not be operating in the Tri-Canyons. As of now our intentions are to operate one helicopter in American Fork. A second helicopter will be also operating in American Fork and further south in Cascade. We will update if this plan should change. If you feel the backcountry has too much user traffic in the core of the Wasatch, there are some places you would rarely see us. The designated wilderness areas and more specifically the Lone Peak, Twin Peaks, and Mt. Olympus wilderness areas in the Wasatch Front are places we do not land a helicopter unless specific circumstances arise. Some of our ski runs and alpine tours are on the boarder between the National Forest and Wilderness and some enter the wilderness zones which, just like you, we have every right to do so. While we may ski in the Wilderness areas, when commercially operating our helicopter LZs and PZs are outside the wilderness. Have a great day and if you have any questions give us a call at 801-742-2800.
