Harris Mountain Heli-Ski

I went Heli skiing with Harris Mountain!!

Monday 11th July 2016 by Yuki

Up until just recently we haven't seen much snow on the ski fields in Queenstown, the weather has been so mild. The good news is there is still plenty of snow up higher, you just need a helicopter to get there!

(Take off time after some avalanche safety training and helicopter loading).

So I went Heli Skiing with Harris Mountain Heli Ski!!

(First run and I can't quite believe where I am).

The weather was fantastic and the views from the top of our private, untracked mountain were just gorgeous.

Not only were the snow conditions awesome, at lunch they put on a delicious spread of cheeses, meats and hot drinks- on a snow carved table.

This was my first time ever Heli Skiing and I would highly recommend it. Harris Mountain offer various levels of terrain to suit your ability so you don't need to be a world class skier to experience this amazing New Zealand trip. It's great to get away from the crowded ski fields and ski some untracked New Zealand powder.

What I was wearing from Outside Sports:

-Haglofs Spirit Jacket

-Haglofs L.I.M Power Dry Hood

-Icebreaker 200 Oasis Base layer

-Icebreaker 200 Body Fit Zone legless

-Icebreaker Oasis Balaclava

-Icebreaker Sierra Gloves

-Marmot Spring Glove

-Spyder Sport Merino socks

-Smith Optics Maze Helmet

-Dalbello Scorpion Ski Boots

-Rossignol Saffron Ski (Outside Sports Ski Rental)

Heli Skiing with Harris Mountains

Powder Heli Ski Runs

If your searching for the fantastic snow, then here's the answer - jump on a heliski trip. Epic long runs and soft powder.

Ridgeline Landing on Harris Mountains Heliski

Our experience began with a helicopter from the Motukituki Valley, Wanaka to experience the highest heli ski runs in the Southern Lakes, and the longest on top of the Harris Mountains.

From the ridge line landing the runs began in steep, technical but super soft light powder which turned slightly heavier at the lower parts of the runs. We explored powder bowls within the Stag range - AWESOME day! 7 runs in total woohooo!

Thanks Harris Mountain Heli-Ski epic day out.
