Heli-ski Private Charters

Harris Mountains Heli-ski are specialists in private heli-skiing and heli-boarding charters. This is the ultimate adventure, with a helicopter exclusively for your use, your own guides and thousands of vertical feet of untracked snow to explore.

Enjoy the freedom to set your own pace and ski or board wherever conditions permit. Offering the ultimate in convenience and flexibility, skip from mountain to mountain. Ski and board as much or as little as you please, as fast or as slow as you wish. Your private charter reflects the exclusive desires of your group.

Whether you are getting family together for a special occasion, would like to experience more backcountry on your own time or would just like to share the ultimate snow experience with a group of mates, make the most of our expertise and let us design your heli-ski day specifically for you.

By choosing a private charter, we can cater for groups with different ability levels and even host spectators who would prefer to watch on and join you for lunch in the mountains after your runs. The number of runs achieved is dependent on the number of heli-skiers/boarders in the charter group, their ability level and the helicopter flying time used.

While we can personalise charters catering to many different needs, abilities and budgets, here are three options to give you an idea of what you can experience with Harris Mountains Heli-ski.

Heli-skiing works like this...

  1. Confirmation

    Early in the morning we check the weather, then we contact you to confirm the heli-ski trip is on, and to set a pickup time.

  2. Pick-up

    We pick you up at your accommodation and drive you to the staging area, where you're introduced to your pilot, guide and fellow heli-skiers.

  3. Safety briefing & first heli-ski

    A safety briefing is given covering avalanche transceivers, helicopter and mountain safety. Then you fly off to the day's first heli-ski run.

  4. Alpine lunch

    All heli-ski groups meet together for an alpine buffet lunch and some downtime to relax and talk about the morning's action.

  5. More heli-ski runs!

    After that, it's back to the ultimate ski experience - more heli-ski runs to finish off your perfect day in the mountains.

    At the end of the day, we drive you from the staging area back to your accommodation for a well-deserved rest or a quick change before your après ski evening in Queenstown or Wanaka.
