Southern Lakes Luxury Heliskiing

Southern Lakes Heliski offers PRIVATE GROUP 3-night LUXURY heli skiing packages from the exclusive & remote Minaret Station Alpine Lodge which includes 2-days of PRIVATE HELI SKIING, however these packages are customisable and it's up to you as to the duration of your pamper trip (pending availability).

Minaret Station Alpine Lodge

Minaret Station Alpine Lodge in New Zealand is a beautifully secluded and boutique luxury lodge, with just four private chalets. Remotely positioned in a high alpine meadow at 3,000ft and surrounded by incredible mountain views, Minaret Station is an experience to inspire. Bordered by National Parks, mountains and Lake Wanaka, there are no roads at all leading to Minaret Station, so access is only possible by helicopter.

Luxury New Zealand Heli Skiing Packages

With these luxury Southern Lakes Heliski packages, you can indulge in superb powder runs and be pampered with opulent surroundings and customer service. This package emulates the North American heli skiing experience yet with a distinctly New Zealand flavour.

All packages include luxury accommodation in one of 4 chalets, PRIVATE HELISKIING (8 - 10 runs), return helicopter transfers from either Wanaka or Queenstown, the use of avalanche safety gear, fresh meals prepared by the lodge chef, unlimited beverages (including wine, beer & spirits), wireless internet and guiding with a maximum group size of 4 guests to a guide.

If the weather becomes inclement, there are plenty of other activities to do between carving up the powder such as fishing, guided hunting or other heli adventures.

This package is only available as a private heli ski package for groups of either 2 or 4 guests.

Here is a short video of what you could expect on a day out with Southern Lakes Heliski and you can see the Southern Lakes Heliski overview page for information on location, terrain and snow etc.

Minaret Station Alpine Lodge

Situated on the 50,000 acre Minaret Station up the head of a glacial valley near Wanaka New Zealand, lies 4 chalets and a mountain kitchen designed to take in the untouched landscape, whilst also providing a luxurious escape.

Accessible only by helicopter you'll enjoy a level of comfort and style never before available in the NZ wilderness. Each chalet is styled in tasteful high country design with a hot tub on the deck where you can recline and relax under the ever changing skies.

The Mountain Kitchen features two separate living areas, wood burning fires, a well stocked library, cellar and first class dining facilities.

As well as being surrounded by some of the best heli skiing terrain in the Southern Lakes Region, there are also options to take on unique services such as guided fishing, guided hunting and other heli adventures.


A luxury experience can be customised to your needs, the amount of time you've got available to be pampered, how much heli skiing your group would like to do, and whether you'll want to transfer from Queenstown or Wanaka. You can make a booking request to check availability and/or get a quote for your bespoke trip.
