Full description
The mountains surrounding the world-renowned resort towns of Queenstown feature thrilling backcountry terrain and dramatic scenery. Enjoy an unforgettable day of heli-ski or heli-board bliss on Harrison Mountain before experiencing the vibrant après-ski nightlife. Choose between 3 and 4 runs. In the morning, your guide will check the weather then contact you to confirm the trip and to set a pickup time. Get picked up at your accommodation in Queenstown, then drive to the staging area where you’ll meet your pilot, guide, and fellow heli-skiers. Next, get a safety briefing that covers avalanche transceivers and helicopter and mountain safety. Then, fly off to the day’s first heli-ski run. Your team has exclusive access to a wide range of terrain, from easy rolling slopes for powder first-timers to challenging chutes and steep valleys for the more experienced. Later, all heli-ski groups meet together for an alpine buffet lunch and some downtime to relax and talk about the morning’s action. After that, it’s back to the ultimate ski experience. Enjoy more heli-ski runs to finish off your perfect day in the mountains. At the end of the day, get driven back to the staging area, then back to your accommodation for a well-deserved rest or a quick change before your après-ski evening in Queenstown.

Know before you go

  • The guide-to-guest ratio is 1:4-5
  • This experience is ideal for a strong intermediate skier/boarder or better
  • Strong intermediate means you can easily ski all the blue runs at your home ski field and can generally ski the black runs, even if you find them challenging
  • Wide-body powder skis or all-mountain skis are the preferred choices for your heli-ski trip
  • Mountain weather can be harsh and unpredictable; early in the morning, the head guide will evaluate the snow and weather information and decide if conditions are suitable for heli-skiing
  • The morning of your experience, the local operator will call you to confirm if weather conditions are suitable
  • If weather conditions prevent flying, you can reschedule for the next day
