5. Queenstown: Harris Mountain Heli-Skiing Experience
The mountains surrounding the world-renowned resort towns of Queenstown feature thrilling backcountry terrain and dramatic scenery. Enjoy an unforgettable day of heli-ski or heli-board bliss on Harrison Mountain before experiencing the vibrant après-ski nightlife. Choose between 3 and 4 runs.
In the morning, your guide will check the weather then contact you to confirm the trip and to set a pickup time. Get picked up at your accommodation in Queenstown, then drive to the staging area where you’ll meet your pilot, guide, and fellow heli-skiers.
Next, get a safety briefing that covers avalanche transceivers and helicopter and mountain safety. Then, fly off to the day’s first heli-ski run.
Your team has exclusive access to a wide range of terrain, from easy rolling slopes for powder first-timers to challenging chutes and steep valleys for the more experienced.
Later, all heli-ski groups meet together for an alpine buffet lunch and some downtime to relax and talk about the morning’s action.
After that, it’s back to the ultimate ski experience. Enjoy more heli-ski runs to finish off your perfect day in the mountains.
At the end of the day, get driven back to the staging area, then back to your accommodation for a well-deserved rest or a quick change before your après-ski evening in Queenstown.
