Do you enjoy the feeling of that first winter snowflake touching your skin? When the summer heat becomes a distant memory, and the excitement of winter begins.
If yes, then hold tight as the season is upon us and it won’t be long until the rugged terrain, mountain peaks and secret slopes around Queenstown, Wanaka and Mount Cook are covered in the white stuff: It’s time for heli-skiing!
We’ve even been lucky enough to have a couple of fierce storms over the last few days and everyone at Harris Mountains Heli-Ski is ready on the start line.
The 2016 season was a bit slow to start but mid way through we were rewarded with our fair share of fresh powder and bluebird days. This year a couple of early snow falls has conditions up high looking great!
With the 2017 season coming up fast, our guiding team's starting to arrive from all over the globe. Our guides have been busy working the Northern winter in Canada, Alaska, India, Japan and Antarctica and will be bringing home their shared expertise.
Once settled in, our pre-season guides work to integrate the latest international best practices, ensuring our staff are leading the way with avalanche education and ski guide training, so we can continue to provide the highest standards of safety for our guests.
We have a solid base of long-term staff, who are all leading industry professionals who will ensure your safety and well-being is paramount. Our pilots are the best in the game, with extensive flying experience in alpine environments and challenging conditions.
