Heli-skiing is undoubtebly one of the most prized experiences in snowsports, this is partly due to the high costs involved and also due to the fact that a certain level of technique and fitness are required to fully appreciate and enjoy the experience. Groups consist of 1 – 4 clients, a professional guide or specialised backcountry instructor and of course the pilot and helicopter. We take into consideration several factors when organizing a day or more of heli-skiing, they are; current snow conditions, weather forecast and your or your groups level, The overall cost depends on how many drops you do and the individual cost depends on the size of your group if you plan to share the cost throughout your group.
