STHS Etiquette and Safety

At Selkirk Tangiers Heli Skiing, guest/staff safety is our main focus. Please read through these tips to help ensure everyone has an amazing day of skiing.

Safety Rules

  • Always listen to the guide’s instructions. Don’t hesitate to ask for clarification if you are uncertain.
  • We are in a remote mountain environment – look out for one another and behave as a team.
  • Choose your own fresh ski or board line, but always add your tracks on to the left or right of the guide’s track (guide will specify these instructions before each run). Always be aware of where you are in relation to your guide’s track, especially when riding in the forest.
  • Give a minimum 10-turns head start to the guide or other skiers ahead of you.
  • NEVER SKI OR RIDE BELOW YOUR GUIDE.
  • Ski with a partner while you are in the forest, your mutual safety depends on it. Tree wells are a serious hazard in the Selkirk and Monashee Mountains.
  • Do not use pole straps around wrist or hands - this is dangerous because poles can get snagged within the trees and act as anchors if you are caught in an avalanche.
  • If you get lost from the rest of the group REMAIN WHERE YOU ARE, your guide will find you. If you keep skiing the situation may become worse.
  • No music devices they interfere with communications with the guides and fellow skiers.
  • Cell Phones must be turned off, they can interfere with the performance of your avalanche transceive
  • No drugs or alcohol consumption during your heli day – strictly enforced. Contravention of this will result in expulsion from the group and an early end to your heli day. Please also try to limit consumption the evening before as well!

Ski Courtesy

  • Ski into re-grouping areas slowly and under control.
  • Take turns skiing behind your guide, in the middle of the group, and at the back.
  • Always ski in control. Most accidents are caused by skier collisions, or by hitting natural hazards.
  • Help fallen skiers with lost skis or equipment.
  • If a boarder is stuck on the flats, skiers can lend a pole or assist them with a push or helping hand.
  • When flat areas are encountered, snowboarders have more success traversing at the back of the group where they can ride in ski tracks made by those in front.

Other

  • No loose items can be left in the helicopter so you need to ski with whatever you bring.
  • After you are finished your ski trip please return your transceivers to the ski shop. Leave your skis in the rack outside for a staff member to return to the rental
  • area.

Please note: For the safety of everyone, STHS ski guides reserve the right to remove any skier / snowboarder from a heliski group if the above Etiquette & Safety guidelines are not being complied with.


STHS Electronics Policy

  • Any type of personal drone camera system.

  • Cellular telephones (see above)
  • Portable radios such as the ones issued by Selkirk Tangiers.
  • Personal still picture and motion picture cameras.
  • Any metal object including foil wrappers on candy bars and cigarette packages.

In the event of an avalanche or lost skier search the following actions must be taken by all persons involved directly in the search:
