Powderbird Helicopter Skiing

Powderbird offers private and small group helicopter skiing opportunities in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah, the coastal ranges of Greenland, and to other exotic locations worldwide. Visit http://www.powderbird.com for more details.

For more than 40 years, Powderbird Helicopter Skiing has been guiding skiers and snowboarders like yourself through a backcountry playground larger than all of Utah's ski resorts combined. Our heli-skiing trips include awe-inspiring alpine views, pristine powder, and opportunities to ski in areas you could never experience at a resort. Heli-skiing with us is truly a unique experience perfectly suited for intermediate, advanced, and expert skiers and snowboarders alike. Our main headquarters are located in the heart of the Wasatch Mountains. With locations in both Park City and Snowbird, Utah, we are the only heli-skiing operation in North America that is within 45 minutes of a major international airport hub. Our guests can conveniently travel from Salt Lake City International Airport and be at either of our locations in less than an hour.

Did you know that helicopter skiing is not an activity reserved for professional “extreme” skiers. Most accomplished skiers and snowboarders have the necessary skills to heli-ski. Here at Powderbird, our guides will match your ability level to our broad mix of terrain, from gentle ridges and bowls to steeper more exciting runs.


Skiing in a private group is comparable to skiing with your own private instructor; you choose who you ski and ride with to create the perfect heli-skiing day. Private Groups are assigned their own team of guides and is ideal for advanced groups who wish to ski more runs at a faster pace.⠀
