Harris Mountains Queenstown & Wanaka Heliski Packages

Harris Mountains Heli-ski offer single day packages so your NZ ski holiday can include some heli skiing mixed in with resort skiing at the nearby ski resorts. However once you go heli skiing you might not ever want to go back to lift accessed skiing!

Typically the 3-4 run Queenstown and Wanaka heli skiing packages will suit intermediates to advanced skiers and riders, whilst maximum vertical packages (7+ runs) are only suited to advanced to expert skiers who don’t need to take things at a leisurely pace.

Harris Mountains Heli Ski also offers Mt Cook packages that include gorgeous scenic flights between Queenstown and Mount Cook.

Various options are also available for private charter and multi-day packages. Enquire above for an accurate quote.

Queenstown & Wanaka Typical Itinerary

  • Early in the morning Harris Mountains Heliski (HMH) check the weather, then they contact you to confirm the heli-ski trip is on, and to set a pickup time.
  • HMH pick you up at your accommodation and drive you to the staging area, where you’re introduced to your pilot, guide and fellow heli-skiers.
  • A safety briefing is given covering avalanche transceivers, helicopter and mountain safety. Then you fly off to the day’s first heli-ski run.
  • All heli-ski groups meet together for an alpine buffet lunch and some downtime to relax and talk about the morning’s action.
  • After that, it’s back to the ultimate ski experience - more heli-ski runs to finish off your perfect day in the mountains.
  • At the end of the day, HMH drive you from the staging area back to your accommodation for a well-deserved rest or a quick change before your après ski evening in Queenstown or Wanaka.
