New Zealand is home to some of the most unique terrain in the world. The mountain ranges offer some of the best skiing. It will be distinctly different from heliskiing in Interior BC, which is mostly known for deep powder, pillows, and tree skiing. New Zealand might not be known as a powder snow destination, but don’t be fooled, there are tons of fresh tracks to be had. Skiing in New Zealand is much more similar to skiing in Europe or South America. Expect most days to be blue skies, wide open views, large powder fields, and open bowls. The terrain is massive and expansive. It’s no wonder that heliskiing in New Zealand is so popular among skiers and boarders from around the globe!
Southern Lakes Heli Ski offers several different packages, some based out of Wanaka and others with charters out of Queenstown. Their single-day packages come in a variety of durations, with shorter days for less experienced heli skiers and unlimited packages for the more adventurous. They can cater to private groups, or you can join them as a single rider. Contact our team to learn more or check out their packages listed on the Heli marketplace.
