Heliskiing provides powder skiing tours in backcountry or glacier terrain. Rather than using traditional ski lifts, skiers are carried to very high or remote areas by helicopter. From there, skiers are accompanied by one or two guides back to a designated helicopter pick-up point. Most heliskiing operations provide packages for either a single day of skiing, or multiple days with on-site lodging included. Safety equipment, including avalanche transceivers, is typically provided to guests as part of the package. Heliskiing is suitable for those who have attained a at least an intermediate level of skill. If you have any question about your abilities, it is recommended that you speak with the company and ask many questions prior to booking your trip. Weather can be variable at the altitudes that heliskiers attain. Be sure to check with the tour operators to find out what to pack.
