Platinum packages include air transfers for inbound and outbound travel. Packages which do not fall into the above categories are subject to transfer conditions agreed upon during the booking procedure.

Transfers by helicopter are not confirmed until the day of the transfer. Tyax Lodge & Heliskiing reserves the right to cancel air transfers due to weather conditions, lack of demand or capacity issues.

Air transfers included in packages will receive NO REFUND if the flight must be cancelled. Each guest must ensure that Tyax Lodge & Heliskiing is told of the location of their Vancouver/Whistler hotels at least 60 days prior to arrival so that transfers can be arranged for their closest pick-up and drop-off locations. It is the guests’ responsibility to get to the designated pick-up location 15 minutes before the scheduled departure time. If the guest misses the transfer then it is their responsibility to pay for any alternative arrangements made.

Transfers and travel times are contingent upon Tyax Lodge & Heliskiing being able to deliver these services without interference beyond the control of management, such as accidents, acts of God, road closures, government requisitions, and other causes whether enumerated herein or not. Therefore, Tyax Lodge & Heliskiing strongly discourages scheduling domestic and international flights on the day of inbound and outbound travel to and from the resort.
