If you are an experienced skier, you likely have heli-skiing on your bucket list. Why not cross it off and enjoy one of the most adventurous activities winter sports can provide? Helicopters are a rarely experienced luxury when it comes to skiing, which is why they are so sought after. Think of it this way, you are basically getting to ski in a place no one else has been, seeing areas no one else has seen and doing it in the most envious way possible.
Why take a helicopter for your backcountry skiing?
Many other options are available for you, such as hiking to these areas, etc. but why do that when you can take a helicopter?
Helicopter travel is unmatched in efficiency and speed and gets you to the peaks faster. Not only that, but after your awesome descent, the helicopter will be waiting to either take you back up again or to another location.
Helicopters also leave less of an environmental impact than ski-lifts do, in fact, the most that these aircraft affect the environment may be the slight print of the landing gear in the snow.
You have the ability to carry all of your equipment with you in one go. Unlike hiking trips, you won’t have to carry anything. Helicopters used for heli-skiing are equipped with inside or outside cargo areas to transport all of your gear.
They’re safer. As a matter of fact, helicopters assist majorly in mountain rescues every year, so having your own at your disposal for the day just makes you a safer skier.
What will you get with a heli-skiing reservation through FairLifts?
You mean other than the thousands of feet of vertical, bottomless powder, nonexistent crowds and endless terrain choices?
Get to the best slopes: As we explained before, you will have the ability to ski remote locations not accessible by traditional means. These backcountry skiing exclusive areas are untouched, unexplored and completely new.
Professional Guides: Along with working with professional and experienced pilots, professional helicopter operators and luxury resorts, we also can arrange a trained guide to accompany you down the slopes. These instructors and hosts have years in the area and have become masters of the terrain. They will personally monitor the snow, weather and avalanche conditions during your heli-skiing excursion and provide immediate assistance if ever needed.
We will work with your resort: So you are staying at a resort not located right in the area in which you wish to ski. No problem. We will coordinate with local resorts for transportation to and from the resort as well as keep a steady stream of contact for your safety. Often, resorts we start working with, we continue working with, bringing in business from all over the world and many offer heli-pads for easy transport as well.
Round Trips, Multi- Day Trips Available: Whether you simply want a day of skiing, just a lift up and down the mountain, want transport from the mountain to your hotel or want to reserve your heli-skiing services for a multi-day excursion, we can build a customized package around your needs. Heli-accessed ski touring is another option and simply involves the participation of the helicopter to transport you to and from the lodge to the peak and then after you are finished for the day.
Backcountry and off-piste skiing can be dangerous due to the risk of avalanche, exhaustion, weather, cliffs, rock fall and tree wells. Your guide will assist you with avalanche transceivers, shovels and probes to perform avalanche rescues. The professional guides FairLifts will arrange for you use state of the art equipment to review and observe the terrain, sky, snow pit data and remote weather station feeds prior to your trip.
Snow stability is assessed prior to picking a specific area to ski in. Detailed safety instructions and training will be provided by most guides prior to the heli-skiing trip. Safety orientations are typically mandatory by most operators. Helmets, transceivers and shovel packs can also be provided for your safety.
