Heliskiing is an exclusive activity in Austria, which is one of the snowiest places in the Alps. While it is currently restricted to Arlberg, there are a number of ways to enjoy a helicopter experience along with epic skiing. Salzburg and East Tyrol are notably scenic and DO provide tours via choppers without directly placing you into the snow. Ski touring to objectives viewed from the air is a welcome challenge to intrepid skiers who still want to feel the thrill of the chopper.
Schneetal and Mehlsack are the most popular options for Arlberg heliskiing programs, the former more fit for newbies to the adrenaline-pumping sport and Mehlsack for the most daring. Most trips will depart from Lech, which is in the heart of the region (Vorarlberg), accessible from Switzerland, Germany, and the rest of Austria.
Good to Know
The Alpine climate is indicative of Austria's weather, with cold and snowy winters that spell great ski conditions. Snow can begin in late autumn and last well into spring.
How to Get There
Flying into Vienna is an easy way to reach Austria, which connects directly to most major European cities as well as New York, Chicago, and Toronto. Trips to Tyrol, Salzburg, and Vorarlberg can also include flights to nearby Munich (Germany) and Zurich (Switzerland). If you do not then take connecting regional flights to Innsbruck or Salzburg, you can catch a number of trains that connect Austrian cities both domestically and internationally.
Best Time to Visit
The prime season to ski is in winter from December through March.
