Heli-skiing in New Zealand
New Zealand's famous Southern Alps with the iconic Mount Cook are ideal terrain for helicopter skiing. New Zealand has fantastic snow-capped mountains, many of which are only accessible by helicopter.
Most New Zealand heliski operators have hundreds of thousands of acres of skiing terrain and hundreds of slopes. The alpine terrain (no trees) is incredibly diverse, from easy, rolling terrain for powder beginners to steep open bowls, twisted slides, and jumping features.
Given that New Zealand has the highest per capita number of helicopters seems a crime not to go skiing or snowboarding via helicopter. One of the benefits of heliboarding and heli-skiing in New Zealand is that you don't have to be an extreme or expert skier or a hardcore snowboarder jumping out of the helicopter or jumping off cliffs. The ideal season is between July and September.
