Although being spring conditions, the guides and pilot made a huge effort to seek out the best soft snow through their expert knowledge. The terrain itself is amazing, and provides a fantastic variety for all skill levels. Thanks especially to James and Phil (Guides) for making the experience amazing. I would highly recommend.

Much more ‘heli’ than skiing. Good snow, great staff, short runs, expensive experience. A lot of waiting around, and not a heap of skiing.

Thanks for the review and the comments. They all help to make our company better for our customers. When we run a circuit we use the helicopter for up to 4 groups. Logistically this can sometimes mean a little bit of waiting time here and there. From your comments, the best option we can suggest for you would be a Private Charter. This involves an exclusive use of a helicopter and guides for just your group which gives you the freedom to go wherever you want and manage your own waiting times and terrain. Most people get between 10-15 runs in a day so great value for money. Have a chat with​ us next time and we can give you some options to meet your needs.

Thanks so much for the review. Ian is legendary and has been heavily involved in snow safety for many years so is an abundance of knowledge in the backcountry. We will pass on what you have said! Thanks again
