Heliskiing in New Zealand is all about no compromises. It’s for adventurers who are seeking pure adrenaline and freedom in fresh powder. If you’re an intermediate or higher skier or boarder, the South Island’s heliski operators will take you to open bowls and steep chutes that will make your toes tingle with anticipation.

The day begins with a weather check, then transport to the staging area. Safety briefings on avalanche transceivers and helicopters are followed by an effortless scenic ride to the ridge of your dreams. From here it’s all downhill through powder, as you and your guide lay lines on the slopes. After a gourmet lunch, the afternoon continues with another flight to another mountain load of fresh runs. At the end of the day, it’s a quick trip back to civilisation but it’ll take you a while to come down to earth.
