Ever been heli skiing?

It’s the ultimate snow experience for a skier or boarder.

Interested? Then let us take you into the heart of the Southern Alps – a world above and beyond all others…

You’re standing in the middle of an untouched powder-kissed paradise; you click in to your bindings, take a deep breath of pure mountain air and contemplate the majesty of your surroundings. You push off and glide into exhilaration.

Powder flies, adrenaline pumps and you soon become a tiny figure amongst the immense silence of the mountain world. At the bottom the helicopter awaits to lift you effortlessly to the top of another peak. Your guide will lead you to the day’s best snow conditions. At lunchtime a gourmet picnic with an unbeatable view then it’s time to do it all again.

This is heli-skiing! Ski over 400 runs from 200+ peaks in 7 separate mountain ranges covering over 3000 square kilometres. Runs vary between 2000 to 3500 vertical feet of treeless skiing in sheltered basins, bowls and wide rolling mountain flanks through to steep and gnarly chutes. Our operations include the famous Harris Mountains and Buchanans Range, and Mount Cook region, New Zealand’s highest mountain.
