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!
- Priced between $500 and $2000 per person (NZD).
- Allow 1 or 2 days in Queenstown either side of your desired day of skiing/boarding. Holding out for the best conditions is worth it!
