Granted much of the experience heli skiing is left up to mother nature but the delivery is rather important too.

We showed up as a group of 6 (day 1 & 7 for day 2) so they informed us it was only $100 more expensive per person to private charter a Heli for the day, a decision that was money well spent over the max vert (7 run option) we ended up getting 11 solid runs each day in some... More

We recently had two days heli and last day heli charter. Andy the guide was awesome and also Roachy and Froggy as well. They are safe, efficient and friendly operators. They will cancel if conditions are unsafe but full refund, safety is key. Spectacular scenery, good pitch at run tops opening to more touring style at the bottom.

The challenge with heli skiing is getting the weather and snow just right. Weather reporting isn't that good in NZ, and given the tumultuous nature of mountain weather you will need to have at least a day either side of your desired day to ensure you get airborne and powder carves. Harris Mountain were responsive upon booking online and worked... More

I had the chance to go up with the first group of the season. While the snow in parts was a little icy, for the time of year Anna (our guide) was able to find us some great spots. Think this will be a repeat affair! Fantastic day out!!!!

You will be blown away by the skill of the pilots and the overall professionalism shown by all employees. First day I only did the easier option as it was my first time heli-boarding.
