- ABOUT THE SPOT
Heli Skiing in Wanaka, South Island, Otago New Zealand
The town is surrounded by the awe-inspiring Southern Alps, with spectacular mountains such as the Crown Range, Haast Pass, Roys Peak and Pisa Range and is close to Mount Aspiring National Park (World Heritage Area). Despite the mountainous landscape, the climate is considered to be continental, with fairly warm summers and temperatures that can reach up to 25°C/77°F, and cold winters with frequent snowfalls.
Intermediate and advanced skiers and snowboarders can enjoy the ultimate activity of heli-skiing. You will be transferred by helicopter to untouched mountain terrains: Centaur Peaks, Dragonfly and Triple Peaks, the magnificent Mount Cook Region and Mountain Tyndall.
Enjoy a great variety of trails for intermediate to expert runners. At the end of each trail, the helicopter will pick you up and transfer you to the next skiing/snowboarding terrain. Don’t forget to bring your sunglasses with you!
Note: Heli-skiing season is from early July to late September.
