A Day in the Powder with Harris Mountain

My Harris Mountain Heli-Ski day: 11th August 2015.

By Jesse Meow- Ski Rental Staff

It was a perfect bluebird day for heli skiing. Queenstown had a fresh 15cm snow fall over the Remarkables region and Harris Mountain were eager to get us going! We were divided into several groups based on heli skiing experience and riding ability, to maximize the day and group dynamics. We were then shown how to safely use an avalanche GPS tracker, avalanche shovel and probe to locate someone under the snow and ran a mock trial before heading to the helicopter.

We had a total of 8 runs (the guide up-selling the group for an additional run) and it was definitely some of the best snowboarding I have ever done. As a Cert 3 Snowboard Instructor I continually chase Winter around the world (this being my 9th consecutive Winter) and I can confidently say it was one the best experiences I have ever had. I would strongly recommend it to anyone feeling ski/snowboard adventurous, looking to chase some NZ powder or have any sort of heli experience!

Harris Mountain Heli-Ski were absolutely fantastic in every possible way; from accommodation pickup and delivery, to great safety awareness in the terrain and picking the best lines for the different groups. The guides were very knowledgeable and kept the group safe through the varied terrain with great avalanche awareness. They also brought us lunch!

A big thanks to all the Harris Mountain Heli-Ski staff! I highly recommend Heli skiing in New Zealand.
