Description

The vast mountain landscape of New Zealand holds 8 separate ranges that are home to 400 ski runs.

Snowy ridges, powder basins and incredible bowls are scattered cross the white-capped landscape, ready for exploration.

From our base in Queenstown, the 1-day heliskiing freeride is perfect for skiers wanting fantastic photo and video shoots, as well as those searching for ultimate helicopter runs. What’s more, the freeriding trip is suitable for all levels of skiing ability.

The southern region covers all of the main mountain ranges that surround Wanaka and Queenstown. While the northern region covers several ranges close to Mt Cook. With plenty of 1,200m runs, this region offers some of the longest heliski runs in the whole country.

Across the whole country, the runs average 600-700 meters down excellent powder snow. And with each range being affected differently by weather conditions, we are able to customise your day suited to your skill and ability, to find the perfect terrain while minimising any risk.

Potential participants for this exhilarating heliski trip need only one requirement: to be able to ski down blue runs. This makes heliskiing open to most skiers.

Get in touch now to reserve your place among the beautiful New Zealand mountains, and experience an excellent day of heliskiing around Queenstown.
