Ever dreamt of not only arriving by helicopter, but also being flown to fresh, untouched snow and skiing exhilarating new routes EVERYDAY? It might sound like the stuff of skiers’ dreams but it’s all a lot easier to arrange than you might think! Many of the below luxury ski chalets & lodges have helipads and all of them encourage mountain adventures from lofty heights - unattainable for the average skier. Just think… you could tick heli-skiing off your bucket list with just one phone call.
Skiing in Canada
Set in the Canadian Rockies where the skiing is renowned for being wildly exhilarating (and mainly challenging with 48% black runs), heli-skiing will take this already exciting resort to another level. Chalet Bighorn has a private helipad for ease of arrival and enabling your party to dominate fresh terrain up the mountain. The chalet itself is the height of comfort, including indoor and outdoor hot tubs, cinema room, pool table, gym, sauna, and massage rooms. What more could you want?
Skiing in Italy
San Lorenzo strikes the seemingly impossible balance of being elegantly luxurious but also down to earth, avoiding pretentious features (that’s if you don’t include the private helipad of course!). Discover the Dolomites in an altogether different way; ski with a freedom that one can only achieve through heli-skiing. And for some much needed down time, the chalet has an outdoor whirlpool, sauna and spa for muscular relaxation. Or explore the extensive wine cellar instead, or perhaps do both at the same time – glass of rosé whilst in said whirlpool anyone?!
Skiing in Iceland
Deplar Farm, Iceland
Deplar Farm is set in a remote valley surrounded by 3,000ft peaks. Guests heli-ski from mountain tops all the way to the ocean's shores or fly fish some of the world's most exclusive Salmon beats. The “Farm” exudes minimalist luxury with panoramic views from the floor to ceiling windows that stop your heart with their dramatic beauty.

And of course the ease at which one can discover virgin snow and knee-deep powder ever present with your own heli-skiing itinerary available.
