If you have ever gazed at the pristine, untracked snow on the peaks visible from Mount Washington and yearned to carve it up, this could be your winter! Join us for a day of heli skiing right here in the Island Alps. Start the day by meeting your guide for safety briefings. Then it’s into the helicopter and up into the mountains for a great day of wilderness skiing. Suitable for advanced/intermediate or above skiing ability.
When do we heli ski?
To go heli skiing, we need the right combination of weather suitable for flying and good stability in the snow. Typically this happens right at the same time that you've finished carving up the fresh stuff at the ski hill and are yearning for more!
How it works:
Contact us if you are interested in heli skiing and we will put your name on a list of people who are keen to go when conditions are just right. When that time comes we'll contact you and offer you the chance to join us for a day trip. The Decision to go will be based on weather forecasts and avalanche hazard forecasts done by our expert guides. You'll usually have somewhere between one and three days' notice that it's "game on"!
Included in the price:
- 1 day with an ACMG guide
- Heli drop and pick up for 6 runs
Not included in the price:
- Transport to and from meeting point
- Extra runs (available for $130/run)
Avi Kit rental $10.00
Includes Transceiver (modern, digital 3-antenna), Shovel and Probe. This equipment will be signed out to you for the duration of the course and you will be responsible for any loss or damage. If you are bringing your own avalanche transceiver, be sure that it is a modern, digital, three antenna transceiver and that it has fresh batteries in it. Malfunctioning or inadequate equipment uses up precious learning time for all participants. Please come properly prepared.
