The ultimate powder skiing experience on every skier’s bucket list. And no wonder, our heli skiing trips allow you to escape the crowds and head to the wilderness to find un-tracked fields of perfect powder waiting to be explored. The thrill of being dropped-off by helicopter at the top of a remote run with only your fellow skiers and guide for company and a long, pristine powder bowl ahead of you is hard to beat.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
With our trips you will stay in a remote heli ski lodge or town-based hotel and from there you will embark on a full daily programme of heli skiing. Every day you are whisked up the mountain by helicopter, accompanied by your fully qualified mountain guide in search of fantastic deep powder. On an average day you would expect to ski between 6 and 14 runs. You would be heli skiing in groups of between 4 and 10 guests with either a private helicopter for your group or a shared helicopter servicing multiple groups, depending on the trip. Our wide range of heli skiing trips accommodate experienced skiers looking for a challenge as well as powder skiing first timers.
HELI SKIING IN CANADA
Canada is the global mecca of heli skiing boasting huge amounts of heli skiing terrain, incredibly consistent light, dry powder and the most experienced heli operator on the planet, CMH. Austrian mountaineer Hans Gmoser founded CMH in 1965 when he first brought guests out to the Bugaboo mountains of British Columbia. Since then CMH hasn’t looked back and now have over 50 years of successful operations. CMH sets the bar world-wide for heli ski holidays and has the most experienced (and largest) guiding team around.
HELI SKIING IN ALASKA
Alaska is an iconic heli skiing destination famed for its steep skiing. The stable maritime snowpack, majestic mountains and regular snowfall combine to make this an unmissable destination for the experienced skier. Our two Alaskan options include the town-based Girdwood (best for flexibility, resort and cat skiing back-up) and the remote Tordrillo Mountain Lodge (a smaller, more remote set-up with luxury lodging).
HELI SKIING IN ICELAND
Our Iceland trips are epic small-scale adventures where you can explore 1,500 square miles of incredible skiing terrain, based in a stunning remote lodge.

From steep couloirs to mellow long descents ending on the shores of the Arctic Ocean, the skiing is filled with vast and exciting terrain. This land of the midnight sun offers true adventurers extended daylight hours with more opportunity to rack up the vertical. Experience the magic of standing on breath-taking peaks and seeing the view from the top of the world.
