Awesome Trip

We had clear skies and 360 degree views of the surrounding area. We had a great flight and enough time to take in the signs

Awesome Experience

Such an amazing experience! I'll be back in winter for a snowy landing. This company was excellent at contacting me early to rearrange flight times when booking numbers were low. Highly recommend!!

Brief ride!

We went on the ride advertised as “25 minutes with Alpine landing”. This is not incorrect but it was 5 mins ride in each direction with 10 mins at the landing spot and back to base in 20 mins. The landing was a rocky hilltop with great views but no snow. Staff were friendly and polite. Very pleased I didn’t pay full price for this ride, but the value was still rather dubious.
