Heli-skiing works like this... 

HMH16 MHP 8346new
From Queenstown or Wanaka:

1 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. 
2typicalday 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 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 All heli-ski groups meet together for an alpine buffet lunch and some downtime to relax and talk about the morning’s action. 
5 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.
