Frequently Asked Questions

How do I schedule my heli-ski trip?

Book well in advance for your preferred heli-ski date. However, we also recommend that you contact us as soon as you arrive in the area, to allow flexibility in case of bad weather on your chosen date. For example, if you’re booked for a trip on Saturday, but you arrive in Wanaka on Wednesday, let us know if you’re also available to ski Friday and Sunday. The more options we have, the better we’re able to find you the best ski conditions! Remember, reservations must be confirmed no later than 6pm on the day prior to your trip.

Run length varies depending on the terrain and snow conditions, from 600 vertical metres to as much as 1300 vertical metres of skiing. On average, run length ranges from 800-1000 vertical metres. 

You will need to bring your own ski/board or your hire equipment.
You will need to have warm clothing and safety equipment – a windproof jacket and pants, warm gloves, snow-quality sunglasses or goggles, a helmet and sunscreen.
The day is spectacular, so don’t forget to bring a camera to capture your heli-ski adventure!
Lunch is provided, but keep in mind that you’ll be doing several hours of high-energy activity before the break. Consider packing some water and snacks to keep you going.

Wide-body powder skis or all-mountain skis are the preferred choice for your heli-ski trip. You don’t have to own your own powder skis – talk to us and we can recommend a variety of hire equipment retailers. This style of ski allows you to handle a wide range of snow conditions, faster, easier and with more stability. All of our guides use these and they’re wonderful for those wanting to go longer and harder in more advanced terrain.
