The Heli Skiing and Off Piste Skiing Experts
We are the largest Heli Ski specialists in the UK with over 35 years of experience in sourcing the ultimate powder skiing adventures for our guests. Each year we organize more heli skiing trips than anybody else in the UK put together.
Heli Skiing: Since 1978 we have been the exclusive UK representatives of CMH Heli Skiing in Canada - the largest heli ski operator in the world. CMH Heli Skiing was started by the Austrian mountaineer Hans Gmoser who, with a little bit of ingenuity and his love for the mountains, invented heli skiing in the Bugaboo mountain range in the 1960’s. We also offer a range of heli skiing trips around the world including Heli Skiing in Chile, Heli Skiing in Alaska and Heli Skiing in Turkey. We can also advise you on any other world-wide heli skiing destinations.
Off Piste Skiing: We organise bespoke off piste skiing trips to Europe, Japan and Canada to name a few. We expertly design our trips using our considerable powder skiing knowledge to ensure you have access to the best mountain guides, boutique accommodation and private transfers.
