In the late 1960's, a Bell 47 helicopter would ferry one or two skiers at a time to the high peaks encircling the Sun Valley Lodge. In 1976, Sun Valley Helicopter Ski Guides, Inc. became one of the first operations in the United States to offer guided heli*skiing. Carl Rixon, one of the original guides, is still leading groups today. Pete Patterson, Olympian and World Championship Medal Winner, was a passenger in the old Bell 47 as a youngster. Now he, along with Rick Barker, Mark Baumgardener, and "Bozo" Cardozo make up the bulk of a guide staff with over 100 years of combined experience.

Bald Mountain lies in the heart of some of the best, most exciting skiing and snowboarding terrain in the world. For thirty years, small groups have explored this winter paradise by helicopter. Join us for an exhilarating day you will live over and over. Bring your enthusiasim and our guides will match your desire and ability to the perfect slope and snow.
