Mount Cook Heliski
- Duration: 8 Hours (approx.)
- Location: Queenstown, NZ
- Product code: MCHS
A day trip from Queenstown to Mount Cook to ski across six mountain ranges and over 200 runs, then return to Queenstown with True South Flights will be a day to remember.
Departing Queenstown in one of True South Flights modern, comfortable aircraft with a guaranteed window seat for all passengers, you will travel along the spectacular Southern Alps to Glentanner airport where we will introduce you to our guiding partners, Alpine Guides.
After a safety briefing you will board your helicopter to some of NZ’s highest helicopter landing areas in small groups of up to four guests per guide to ensure a safe personalised experience to suit all levels of heli-ski ability. The longest runs are four kilometres in length averaging 800 vertical metres and up to 1,300 vertical metres on a variety of terrain, runs and snow quality. You will get five incredible heli-ski runs and you will be provided with all required safety equipment and provided with lunch on the snow.
We have terrain to suit all levels of heli-boarders and heli-skiers; from cruisy powder bowls and open faces to steep gnarly chutes. We also boast more advanced-level terrain, and glaciated runs than the Queenstown or Wanaka region.
After completing your last run, you will descend back to Glentanner airport by scenic helicopter flight to meet your True South pilot. Your pilot will load you and your equipment for a 50-minute flight back to Queenstown in time to catch the Queenstown Après ski scene.
