Best Heli Skiing in New Zealand

Best New Zealand Heli Skiing

All heli skiing is super fun and an awesome way to get to the untracked snow without having to hike for it, but where's the best New Zealand heli skiing?

The New Zealand heli skiing companies are all very alike, particularly the Wanaka and Queenstown heli skiing outfits. So it can be a little problematic choosing which of the NZ heliskiing operations is best for you. For some people the choice is largely based on location and how the heliskiing fits into the plans for the rest of your New Zealand ski holiday, but for others it may be related to other factors.

Whilst it’s somewhat difficult to make major differentiations, there are some subtle distinctions between the NZ heliski operations.

To aid you with decision making regarding the best New Zealand heliskiing for you:
