Snowcat Skiing at Chatter Creek
Arrival at Golden airport and Alpine Helicopters. Man, are we stoked! We've been waiting for this for a year.

Guests unload at the door of the Alpine Helicopters hanger and then park in an adjacent fenced compound.

Departure time advances as the year progresses and days get longer. All guests receive the mandatory safety briefing at the same time and must arrive at the advertised time to participate in this.

The upper "Google Earth" 3d satellite image to the right shows the helicopter flight path from Golden BC to Chatter Creek. Both the direct route and the longer poor-weather route are shown. The flight path follows the Rocky Mountain Trench. The second satellite image to the right provides a closer look at Golden BC and its immediate surroundings. Click on either image to enlarge it.
