Flight to Powder Skiing

Flight to Powder Skiing
Chatter Creek's Vertebrae Lodge is located about 95 km north of Golden. It is in the Rocky Mountains at an elevation of 5450 ft. Access is by helicopter from Golden Airport. There are two transfer days a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Our "Flight to Chatter Creek" photo gallery offers a peek at this scenic flight.

Meeting time at the Golden Airport is roughly mid-afternoon on the transfer day. However departure time changes as the season advances and there are more daylight hours. The flights take in arriving clients and bring out departing clients. The flights must complete in daylight, so there can be no delay in the flight schedule.

Luggage space is very limited. Most clients wear their bulky ski clothes on the helicopter and pack only a few casual clothes for evening wear. Use a small soft-sided equipment bag that can be crammed into tight spaces. Don't forget your swim suit for the hot tub.
