The difference between the Himalayan Odyssey and Himalayan Excliusive is
HIMALAYAN ODYSSEY HIMALAYAN EXCLUSIVE

This package includes all Himalayan Odyssey features except for the helicopter lift and guide service. This trip has been designed specifically for those of you who may want to accompany a heliskier but would rather explore the "Valley of Gods" by foot than by ski.

The Himalayan Exclusive operates with fewer groups using the helicopter. The Exclusive is designed for skiers wanting to ski in excess of normal verticals.

The HHS Private Odyssey
Our location is ideal for corporate retreats, family meetings, or casual, private vacations. HHS has made a separate fee schedule for small, intimate groups of heli-skiers who would like the ultimate Himalayan ski experience; our area and aircraft are available for the exclusive use of your private group for the week. These Our Packages are helicopter time based. In order to help customise the trip to your group's requests, please let us know well in advance if you would like more information and a price quote.


The Complete Journey Includes
1. Your journey from New Delhi to the mountains will involve flying in aircraft that can not carry skis, or   luggage in excess of ten kilograms per passenger. 

2. The luggage travelling by road will reach Manali and Patlikul late on Saturday night. 

3. The luggage accompanying you by air should not weigh more than ten kilos and the luggage going by vehicle should not weigh more than thirty kilograms.

4. On Saturday morning after breakfast you will be picked up at your hotel for departure to our base in the
mountains. Our representative who meets you at the Delhi international airport will inform you of the time that your luggage should be ready for collection.

Please pack all sharp objects and batteries in your checked luggage.

5. We move our guests from New Delhi to the mountains by a combination of means, including fixed wing aircraft, train, helicopter and car or bus. Depending on weather forecasts and numbers of passengers we will use the most efficient means available to us to get you to and from the mountains. Please inquire with our staff in Delhi on Saturday morning if you are curious about the transport logistics for the day. In all cases there is the possibility of changes in plans, usually due to unexpected changes in the weather. For this reason guests must be prepared for the possibility of travelling a large portion of the trip overland. Those who have done this trip have commented that they enjoyed the opportunity to see the rural Indian countryside. It is quite spectacular and very interesting. In most cases the longest you could expect to travel by road is 9 hours and this in rare cases only.

6. Because of the possibility of delays on your return from the mountains to New Delhi we recommend that outward flights from Delhi should be booked no earlier than Sunday night. One extra day in the itinerary means that if your transfer to New Delhi arrives on schedule (as it usually does) then guests have the chance to see the Taj Mahal on Sunday. If guests are willing to accept the uncertainties of the service between Manali and Delhi, then flights out of Delhi can obviously be booked for Saturday night.


APRES-SKIING ENTERTAINMENT
We believe that we have more variety in the way of after skiing entertainment than any other ski area. We admit that we are a bit short in the way of discos and celebrity spotting opportunities (unless you count the possible Indian film crews and film stars) but we have other diversions. Some of them are: visiting the local moonshine distillers, seeing the local gods being moved from village to village with all the accompanying fanfare (and drinking), viewing the collection of paintings by Nikolai Roerich at the local art gallery (Roerich's old residence), bathing in the hot springs, having absurd costumes made by the local tailor (who can also make good clothes) to see if you can look worse than our pilot does, visiting ancient villages and seeing the beautiful local wood carvings, taking audience at the local Buddhist monastery, visiting the local Tibetan Thanka painting school, experiencing the ancient Hindu temples (home to some extremely important Gods and Rishis), bargaining with the Kashmiri carpet merchants or just drinking tea in the bazaar and watching life move slowly by.

No-fly days due to bad weather will happen. To date we have had less than half a dozen weeks when we have not reached the minimum hundred thousand feet of skiing. To entertain our guests in bad weather, HHS employs a local cultural interpreter who runs daily tours of the area. Guests indicate their interest and a trip is tailored to include the most relevant points of interest.


HELICOPTERS
In the 2003 season, using Helicopters will be a Bell 407 and a Lama. Both of these machines will be serviced by Swiss engineers and flown by Swiss pilots. Backup support is supplied by the Indian Air Force (IAF).

 


Reservation and Payment
Before making a reservation you must carefully read our "Guide to Skiing" brochure. To reserve a week please contact our office or representative to confirm if seats are available in your chosen week. Payment procedures will be forwarded together with advice on seat availability. A non-refundable deposit of US$2000.00 per seat is required to hold a reservation. Full payment must be made at least twelve weeks prior to your departure date.
