Heli-Skiing

Discovering The Unknown

 

Heli-skiing is off-trail, downhill skiing or snowboarding reached by helicopter, instead of a ski lift.

 

For many first-timers the word itself evokes images of extreme athletes leaping out of helicopters on to near-vertical slopes. It’s not like that! Think of a helicopter as the cable car of your dreams – safe and comfortable yet capable of reaching peaks far beyond the resort crowds in search of untracked snow.

 

Thanks to its successful development, heli-skiing is becoming increasingly popular among skiers and snowboarders, from experienced free-riders to off-piste first-timers.

 

Contrary to many people’s perception, most trips that we organise are not extreme at all, they are more similar to the gradient skiing you would find on a red slope in a resort. The main difference is that with heli-skiing you will enjoy run after run of fresh powder snow.

 

We specialise in offering small groups and unique adventures in private helicopters across the world; our most popular destinations are Alaska, Canada, Europe, Iceland, Greenland, Sweden and Japan.

 

With our unique and exclusive offering, you can travel the globe and always find fresh powder away from the masses.

 

You don’t need to be a veteran skier to enjoy heli-skiing. If you are a strong piste skier and want to ski powder snow then you are ready for heli-skiing. Our most experience instructor, Christian Jensen, can help you improve your technique and confidence.
