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.
