Sometimes the Crystal Ball is cloudy…
especially when it comes to pricing

Trying to make decisions about the future is tough. Even tougher when the crystal ball you’re staring into is filled with clouds and snow. The last two years have seen a huge worldwide economic transformation. Early 2008 was a very different world than what we see and know today. We set prices then for the 2010-11 season. Fuel and the cost of doing business were skyrocketing. Later that year, the worldwide economy began to come apart. We made price adjustments through the implementation of the EBI (early booking incentive) and a myriad of trip options, all in an effort to respond to the changing economic landscape.

Perfect solution? Not entirely.CMH Heli-Skiing

We asked, you told us…

The early booking credit helped take the price down but the question remained for us; what to do in the coming years?

We began asking more questions in earnest. Firstly, we wanted to thank those of you who were subjected to our many price value questions, surveys; phone calls and e mails. Our CMH world is filled with strong opinions (you know who you are.) Most importantly, and to our tremendous benefit, an overwhelming majority of our guests have the strong desire to see us be successful into the future. We have read every comment card from this season to date, thanks for taking the time to tell us what you really think.

We set a price two years ago (for the future that is today) in anticipation of where the world might be. As with any move that jumps through time, we got some things right and totally missed on some others.

Where are we going?

We’re not very good at marketing gimmicks and complicated promotions. We are pretty good at offering great skiing and riding all combined with our own unique CMH hospitality. Your many suggestions and creative ideas have helped a lot. We’ve looked at lots of different options; frankly, it all kept coming back to the simplest and most straightforward decision.

  • CMH is holding heli-skiing prices flat for the coming 2011 and 2012 seasons, maintaining the published 2010 rates. No increase, no gimmicks, no fine print.      
  • We will continue our 46 year tradition of staying out of the last minute discount game. "Price assurance" may be a new phrase in travel, it’s always been our way. Rest assured that the skier sitting next to you in the helicopter didn’t pay less than you by booking at the last minute.      
  • The Early Booking Incentive will continue for the coming season on all trips booked (with deposit) by the new date of May 7th, 2010 for the 10/11 season.
If this seems a bit too good to be true, call our Heli-Ski Experts at 1.800.661.0252 or send an email and we can walk you through all the details…We’ve always tried to be fair and transparent.

Best wishes to all of you for the coming summer season, thanks for your continued support and enthusiasm for CMH.
