Alpine Heliski NZ

For powderhounds who are addicted to skiing or boarding virgin snow, fresh tracks are as vital as breathing oxygen. Finding freshies at the NZ ski resorts is rare, and whilst it’s sometimes possible to find fresh powder at the NZ club fields, it can be hard to have a nut-cracking good time considering the general lack of facilities. The ultimate alternative is a helicopter – it’s a million times better than a nut-cracker rope-tow! And with a helicopter you can hit the backcountry where there are thousands of hectares of untouched snow – it’s music to a powderhounds ears!

Alpine Heli Ski NZ provides a range of heli skiing packages and charter trips in the spectacular Southern Alps near Queenstown, Wanaka and Mt Cook. Their packages are suitable for seasoned pros or heli skiing virgins. However if you haven’t been heli skiing yet, be warned. Go heli skiing once and you’ll begin a love affair that you may not be able to break off!

Where is Alpine Heli Ski Located? The Alpine Heli Ski office is located in Queenstown.

Alpine Heli Ski’s playground is within the stunning mountains near Queenstown, Wanaka and Mt Cook.

When Does Alpine Heli Ski Operate? The Alpine Heli Ski season starts on July 1st and continues through to September 30th. Peak time is during August.

As with all New Zealand heli skiing, fly days are very contingent on the weather. The choppers may be grounded every second day on average, so keep your itinerary a little flexible. Thankfully there are a plethora of other world famous Queenstown activities to keep you entertained.

Heli Skiing and Heli Boarding Terrain

The terrain on offer is vast to say the least. It’s more than 1,800 times the size of Coronet Peak, so the guides have lots of slopes to choose from to find the best snow conditions. The terrain is appropriate for various ability levels, from blue-runners through to experts.

The alpine terrain includes powder bowls, ridges, chutes and glaciers. Run length varies somewhat with an average vertical drop of about 600-700 metres. In the Mt Cook region the runs are generally much longer, with some runs in excess of 1,200 metres so you’ll need to undertake an intensive pre-season training regime!?!

Another highlight of the heli skiing is the opportunity to be up amongst the spectacular terrain in the Southern Alps. Chances are you’ll become really snap happy, so take an extra memory card for your digital camera.

Alpine Heliski Refund Policy

A full refund can only be guaranteed if cancellation is received 24 hours prior to skiing.

Minimum number of 3 people required for heliskiing to operate.

If adverse weather prevents flying, your money will be fully refunded. If some heli skiing has been possible but less than the runs booked, you will be refunded at NZ$100 per run not skied 'or' downgraded to the next lowest package, whichever is the least cost to Alpine Heliski Ltd.

Refunds are not given due to injury, lack of ability or fitness.

Alpine Heliski reserves the right to cancel the days heli ski operations for any reason.
