Heliski: It's a Hell of a Ride

Heliski: It's a Hell of a Ride

I can understand that sometimes regular skiing, since it's so popular, can lose its thrill. The mountains become so packed with skiers and riders - you waste a lot of time waiting on lines for ski lifts.

And those ski lifts can only go so high. That's where heliskiing comes in. Picture this - a helicopter picks you and your buddies up, takes you high above the most beautiful white peaks you've ever seen, and delivers you on top of a perfectly snow-covered mountain.

No waiting. No lines. Nobody else. Just you, your friends, and the most amazing powder you've ever seen. The views are spectacular, and the thrill of skiing the unknown even better.

You can heliski (or board) all over the world: In New Zealand, Utah, Whistler, Turkey or Chile, or Italy. It's not cheap though - packages can run you around $695 for 3 runs.

But the helicopter brings you where no ski-lift could ever go. Talk about an amazing ride.
