Latest Questions about Heli Skiing - Harris Mountains Heliski ex Queenstown & Wanaka (Queenstown)

There are five of us. Anyway we can all ski together? Also, no idea how many runs to book? We are all experienced skiers. Is four runs enough? Is that a day, or half day? How long is seven runs? Need some guidance...

Comments

For 5 of you to go heli-skiing, it would depend on each of your weights if you would be in one group or in separate loads. The heli can take up to around 500kg in one load In terms of how many runs we recommend- this really depends on your abilities, if you are quite confident and fit, then I would highly recommend doing 7 runs to really maximise the day (or 10 if you're extra keen). 4 runs is great if you are just after a taster. Both the 4 runs & 7 runs are a full-day activity.

Heya , was looking at doing a heli board trip this st the 9th. I did the ability questions and it seems I'm around tier3 , however I haven't boarded in a few years . So may be a tad rusty. Curious what you would recommend and what is a good amount of runs granted I'm in decent shape. Tnx!

Comments

If possible I'd suggest to go up the mountain for a day or two beforehand just to get a bit of form and 'snowboard fitness' back. Not essential but it will make your heli boarding day so much better. I'd suggest the 7 run day. 99% of people that book 3 or 4 runs end up upgrading to 7 runs or more anyway! If you think you are tier 3 then stick with that. If the guides think you are more or less capable after your first run or so then they can switch you into a different group if possible.

Will heliskiing be possible in January 2019 ? Snow ?

Comments

Heya, Unfortunately there will not be enough snow to heli ski in January as that is peak of summer here in New Zealand you would need to come July/August for that.

what is minimum age allowed to do this

Comments

Hi Janelle, as a guide the minimum age Harris Mountains Heli Skiing generally take is 13 year olds, that being said if you have a child who is a very competent skiier and could handle heli skiing then such kids younger than 13 are often accepted if they are with their parents.

What is the ski time in minutes for each run on average ?

How many people in an advanced group ?

Comments

Hi Mark. The heli ski runs in Queenstown differ in length depending on the terrain and the snow conditions. The exclusive terrain offers runs that vary between 2000 and 2500 vertical feet of treeless skiing in sheltered basins, bowls and wide rolling mountain flanks through to steep and gnarly chutes. They can take anywhere from 10 - 20 minutes to ski depending on ability.

There is a guide to skier/boarder ratio of up to 1:5 and each heli only takes 6 passengers so you will be in a small group of up to 5 people plus one guide. Skiers/boarders are placed in groups that reflect their skiing ability. Often in the advanced groups there are less people.

What happens if bad weather prevents my Harris Mountain Heli Ski from going ahead?

Comments

Hi Ella, if bad weather means Harris Mountain Heliski have to cancel the heli ski on your chosen day you can postpone to another day, and hope the weather comes right. Alternatively, if you never get a chance to do your heli ski because of continuous bad weather we can refund you.
