I can only say great things about Alpine Helicopters. I surprised my boyfriend with a helicopter ride for his birthday. I had booked this over email. When we arrived, the women at the front desk were unable to find our reservation. I showed them my confirmation email just in case. They were still able to get us on! The safety... More

We surprised the kids with a helicopter ride. We took the 3 sisters 12 minute tour. Lovely scenery.. but my 4 year old was so enthralled with the headset .. he missed a lot of the views. Although his " over & out"s were hysterical. Super great customer service. Go about 15-20 minutes before your scheduled flight time so you... More

After spending over $700.00 for a 30 minute tour we saw very little due to low clouds. At one point the tour guide said, 'To your left which you can't see is ____ Mountain. On a few occasions I felt it was unsafe because I had no idea what was snow and what was cloud and feared going into the... More

Pete is an amazing pilot. Spectacular service, clean, professional and they know the mountains like the back of their hands. Strongly recommend. They only fly 4 in a bird to make sure everyone gets a window seat!! Clean and reliable equipment.

We took the 12 minute tour of the three sisters mountains, and the ride itself was absolutely spectacular! The staff were nice enough, although they seemed a little weary and like they were going through the motions. Understandable to a degree as I know they do a lot of tours each day, but when you are paying a lot of... More

I couldn't tell you how excited me and my fiancee were to go up in the helicopter to Marvel Pass where we got married. The pilot was really friendly telling us about different things and what the mountains we flew over were called. It was something we have always wanted to do but also getting married up there was the... More
