Heli Skiing

Skiers of means who are addicted to the purest of white powder can skip the lift lines, and the lifts altogether. Take a whirlybird to first tracks on some of Utah’s remote, virginal peaks.

Whether you’re so good even Utah’s ski resorts are no longer challenging, or you won’t ski anything but pristine powder (and you’re not interested in skinning it uphill), or you just like spending money, heli-skiing will scratch your itch.

Grab your powder skis and hop in a chopper to untouched mountains in the Wasatch, Cache and Uinta ranges. You’re looking at around $1,200 for the cheapest option. Plan on at least six runs for a combined ~20,000 feet of vertical descent. Oh, and lunch. Twelve hundred dollars gets you lunch.

Local outfitters require guests to have at least advanced-intermediate skill level and suitable fitness. And $1,200.
