Iceland – The magical land of fire and ice
Heli skiing in Iceland provides the chance to ski from the highest peaks right down to the Arctic Ocean. The land of the midnight sun provides extended daylight hours so you can make sea-to-summit runs even after dinner. Long descents over the North Atlantic Ocean are punctuated by never-ending sunsets over crystallized glaciers.
Canada – The people and powder place
Boasting some of the highest snow-covered crests in eastern North America, the Arctic Cordillera range features high glaciated peaks, some above 6,000 feet, rising through ice fields surrounded by spectacular scenery and bordered by the Atlantic Ocean. Inland fiords cut into the range providing a spectacular backdrop to soar over on your way to untouched snow.
Japan – Land of the snow gods
Imagine landing on the top of a snow-covered volcano with 360-degree views and steep, deep powder. Hokkaido, the northernmost island of Japan, is the powder capital of the world and the most popular international ski destination in Japan. It is ideally located in the path of consistent weather systems that bring in up to 60 feet of fresh, light powder annually.
New Zealand – The backcountry down under
The rugged Southern Alps extend 650 kilometers (400 miles) along the western side of New Zealand’s South Island offering thrilling skiing terrain and dramatic scenery. With the highest number of helicopters per capita, 200 snow-covered peaks and many verticals that are only accessible by helicopter – heli skiing is deeply rooted in the New Zealand culture.
Alaska – The powder frontier
Heli ski the Western Chugach Mountains to experience the abundant snowfall, deep powder and beautiful brilliance of Alaska. Ski untracked powder and drop into bowls overlooking the black sand shores of the Pacific. Arc through epic tree runs through acres of tall hemlock and Sitka spruce while taking in the gorgeous glaciers.
Wyoming – The vertical’s edge
Considered a bucket list destination because of the advanced and extreme terrain on five mountain ranges, Jackson Hole Wyoming is a Heli skier’s paradise. Skiers enjoy breathtaking beauty, rugged terrain, mind-blowing straight lines, and huge cliff drops. Through an elite partnership with the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, PJS offers a Membership Program which includes simple, all-inclusive rates with no hidden fees, 365-day aircraft availability and special perks such as VIP access to unique life experiences in the air and on the mountain.
