Queenstown heli-skiing Credit: Harris Heli-Skiing

EVER BEEN HELI-SKIING? It’s the ultimate snow experience for a skier or boarder. Imagine, you’re standing in the middle of an untouched powder-kissed paradise; you click in to your bindings, take a deep breath of pure mountain air and contemplate the majesty of your surroundings. You push off and glide into exhilaration. Powder flies, adrenaline pumps and you soon become a tiny figure amongst the immense silence of the mountain world. At the bottom the helicopter awaits to lift you effortlessly to the top of another peak. Your guide will lead you to the day’s best snow conditions. At lunchtime indulge in a gourmet picnic with an unbeatable view then it’s time to do it all again. This is Harris Mountains HeliSkiing, the perfect escape from the everyday and the perfect way to recharge your senses.

SIMPLE ANSWERS TO YOUR QUESTIONS How well do I have to ski to go Heli-skiing? Ideally you are a strong intermediate skier/boarder or better, with a sense of adventure. Harris Mountains Heli-Ski has exclusive access to extensive terrain including easy rolling terrain for powder first timers, wide open bowls and challenging chutes with steep valleys for the more experienced. You’ll be part of a group of four led by a guide who is committed to your safety and enjoyment of this alpine environment. Ask Ski Express for our Ability Questionnaire to help establish your ability and the best group for you.

How does the Heli-ski day work? After an early morning weather check, we collect you from your accom & take you to the staging area. Start with a safety briefing covering avalanche transceivers, helicopter and mountain safety, before flying off to the first heli-ski run. All groups meet for a alpine buffet lunch with time to relax. The afternoon is back to the ultimate - more heli-ski runs.

Do I need powder skis? No but the new wide body powder skis will assist you to ski even better, we can recommend a variety of hire equipment retailers.

How long are the runs? Run length varies depending on the terrain and snow conditions. Our exclusive terrain offers runs that vary between 2000 and 2500 vertical feet of treeless skiing in sheltered basins, bowls and wide rolling mountain flanks through to steep and gnarly chutes.

What do I need to bring? You will need to bring your skis/board or hire equipment & warm clothing - a windproof jacket and pants, warm gloves, sunglasses or goggles and sunscreen. The day is spectacular, so bring a camera to capture your heli-ski day.

What’s included in the Heli-ski day?

How does the weather affect Heli-skiing? If adverse weather prevents flying, clients will receive a full refund. If some heli-skiing is possible but less than the guaranteed vertical, they will refund NZ$100 per run. Note: Refunds are not given due to lack of ability, lack of fitness or injury.

It takes a certain kind of person to jump out an aircraft 15,000ft into thin air. It takes courage! Harnessed to an experience jumpmaster, expect sensory overload as you step out of the aircraft door and for some 60 seconds plummet towards the ground at 200kph. Achievement doesn’t come sweeter. Trip duration 3.5 hours and depart every 30 minutes.

ONSEN HOT POOLS While Queenstown is generally done at full pace, Onsen Hot Pools takes a step back to let you take in the beauty of the surroundings and simply relax. With uninterrupted views across the Shotover Canyon, our Cedar Hot Tubs are heated up to 39.8C during the winter and can accommodate up to four adults.

LOCATION Centred in the middle of the North Island, half way between Wellington and Auckland, 4 hr drive each way. Mt Ruapehu is an active volcano, and has two ski resorts, Whakapapa (pronounced fukka-puppa) on the North-west slopes, and Turoa, on the South-west slopes, the only ski resorts on the North Island, both accessible with your Mt Ruapehu lift pass.

TERRAIN Huge snow filled basins, steep chutes, drop offs and collectively boasting the largest terrain and highest lift in NZ. Whakapapa has 4 lifts, 3 T-bars & 3 carpet lifts, while Turoa has 5 lifts, 2 platters & 1 Sunkid Carpet Lift. Great for all levels of ability. Whakapapa is home to Happy Valley, NZ’s premier beginners’ area that sits in a stand alone valley, away from more experienced skiers and boarders.

WHY WE LOVE Ski on an active Volcano! Even if you don’t ski, you can take the scenic chair to the top and enjoy the stunning views over the North Island at one of NZ highest cafes!
