Queenstown Heliskiing & Heliboarding

If you crave the backcountry and uncrowded slopes, Queenstown heliskiing is for you!

For advanced skiers and snowboarders, the thrill of heliskiing or heliboarding is an unforgettable experience!

Imagine boarding a helicopter in Queenstown and winging your way to a day (or more!) of pristine, untouched backcountry heaven. 

New Zealand’s Southern Alps are within easy flying distance of Queenstown and offer some of the most awe-inspiring skiing and boarding on earth. Depending on your stamina, as well as the weather conditions, you will normally get between 3 and 7 runs per day and lunch and personal guiding is often included.

There are single-day excursions available, as well as multi-day backcountry adventures.  Just choose the option that suits your schedule, budget or sense of adventure!

Key Information:
