Winter 2017 Season Highlights
25/10/2017 12:11pm

First off, we couldn’t have pulled off such a great winter Heli-Ski season without our incredible team and the local community that supports us and has been involved in making the 2017 Winter season a huge success! 

As always, we welcomed back many of our returning guests and enjoyed exploring some incredible new terrain between Queenstown, Wanaka and Mt Cook. Looking back, we think it's safe to say that the 2017 Heli-ski season was full of epic conditions, right up until Spring and some pretty cool stories to tell. 

The season may have ended but we're already looking towards next winter with heaps of exciting plans, so watch this space - Until then though, here's a quick re-cap of our highlights...

We had some pretty cool guests...
