1. The Helicopter Ride
To restate the obvious… you get to ride in a HELICOPTER. And not just once—from the first ride in the morning to drop you in the mountains and every run that you take, to your ride back to the valley at the end of the day. It’s an adrenaline rush that gets your blood pumping before you even take a turn.
2. Untracked Power
Vast expanses of it, as far as your eye can see. When you heliski, every line is nothing but untracked powder. Your best turns are waiting for you, every time.
Imagine flying over some of the most beautiful wilderness in the Southern Alps. Imagine standing at the top of one of those lines you were eyeing from the helicopter. Imagine dropping into it. Now imagine that there’s nothing else in sight, and no one else around. Just you, your ski buddies, and your guide in the wilds of New Zealand.
4. No Lift Lines
Love powder, but hate the crowds it brings? Heliskiing means no time wasted in long lift lines. Ski or ride your dream line in untracked powder, and climb back into your personal helicopter at the bottom for your next run in a wintery paradise.
