5 Sky-High Heli-Skiing Adventures 

 

#1 French Alps

For perfect powder in the French Alps, Val Heliski has the hookup. The Courchevel-based outfitter has pioneered 32 drop zones throughout Valgrisenche, the Courmayeur Valley, and the Col du Petit Saint-Bernard Pass, ensuring ideal terrain and snow conditions at every run—no matter your skill level. Enjoy long descents with views of nearby Mont Blanc or the Matterhorn as well as luxurious chalet accommodations for plenty of après-ski R&R.

#2 Jackson Hole

Conquer deep and dry powder in Jackson Hole with High Mountain Heli-Skiing, a 44-year heli expert offering top access to the best open bowls and steep chutes throughout the Snake River and Palisades mountain ranges. Spend a day flying from peak to peak—those with a daredevil streak can tackle six runs totaling up to 15,000 vertical feet—and then take it easy with wintery adventures like cross-country skiing and snow biking. For the most exclusive way to heli, stay at the Snake River Sporting Club, a private ski community with overnight accommodations and easy helicopter access to the pistes.

#3 Park City

With the Utah-based outfitter Powderbird, first-time heli-skiers can expect access to more than 80,000 acres of fresh powder in the Wasatch Mountains via their own private helicopter. And thanks to the hundreds of inches of snowfall that descend on Utah every winter, the perfect conditions for a first-time heli run are virtually guaranteed.

#4 Telluride

Telluride’s best-kept secret is that the best snow comes late in the season. Take advantage of that with a high-flying adventure through the San Juan Mountains with the experts at Telluride Helitrax. During the late winter months, skiers can expect deeper snowpack and more stable snow conditions—perfect for first-timers. Base yourself at the Madeline Hotel & Residences to ensure your après-ski activities include plenty of pampering—the Auberge Resorts property features one of Telluride’s largest spas.

#5 The Dolomites

In 2009, the Dolomites were added to the UNESCO World Heritage Site list for their intrinsic beauty, fossilized atolls, and spectacular vertical forms. They’re also a spectacular place to get acquainted with heli-skiing. Take advantage of this rare blend of adventure and history by booking Ciasa Salares’s heli-skiing experience, which takes adventurers through the ledges and plateaus of some of the region’s most famous mountains. Post-run, the hotel’s new penthouse, which features a private terrace and hot tub for those achy muscles, is the ultimate place to recuperate.
