All guests initially meet in Pemberton at the Pemberton Airport Terminal building for a trip briefing, helicopter orientation, and waiver signing.

Meeting Times:
Saturday 8 AM

The terminal building is just east of the Blackcomb Helicopters office and Hanger. Please park directly opposite the terminal entrance. Once the pilot is happy with the weather window and everyone is clear on the logistics for the day, we will drive in convoy to our staging area at the Red Barn, in D’Arcy. It is about 45 minutes east of the airport. Please ensure you have transport to D’Arcy organized, we encourage carpooling where possible. Vehicles can be left at Pemberton Airport if necessary.
