I flew as a passanger with ERA out of Juneau last year but we had nothing like this as a story to pass on to the folks back home.

"Juneau, AK Eleven guests from the Seven Seas Mariner participating on a dog sledding shore excursion were stranded overnight on a glacier when their return helicopter was unable to take off from Juneau due to foul weather. The group spent the night of August 16, in tents provided for the dog sled camp employees. According to an ERA Helicopters employee, this was the first time such a thing had happened in twenty-two years of operation.


Prior to leaving Juneau guests on the tour were given thick jackets and snow boots so during the long wait on the glacier everyone remained warm and dry. As evening approached and the clouds grew thicker, the camp employees started to make arrangements for the eventuality of overnight visitors. "

Certainly a story those people will tell for the rest of their lives. It is a testament to the staff at the musher camp that they are certainly prepared for surprise guests!
