New Heli Ski Product – The Gourmet Charter!

March 16, 2017

We would like to introduce this exciting new product which is completely exclusive to Southern Lakes Heliski.

The Gourmet Charter combines heliskiing with a tantalising culinary experience that is perfect for small groups of four.  This 2.0hr private charter allows you to ski or snowboard our finest terrain, followed by a decadent late lunch prepared in our luxurious Mountain kitchen. Delight your taste buds with delicious local fare and fine wines. The rest of your senses will be stimulated by the stunning scenery surrounding our remote lodge, set deep within the Southern Alps of New Zealand.


The terrain around Minaret Station Alpine Lodge is second to none. A combination of open valleys, steep chutes and endless rock drops which are perfect for all abilities from intermediate to advanced. Because of its proximity to the west coast, it gets regular snowfall creating dream conditions for an epic heliski day.

Minaret Station Alpine Lodge is internationally recognised and provides anyone who visits it with an experience like no other. Remote and set amongst beautiful mountains you can’t help but unwind and replenish yourself in nature’s beauty. If you feel like staying on after the charter, there are four luxurious chalets available. Perfect for a unique escape.


We invite you to come and have a day you will never forget. The cost of our Gourmet Charter is only $11,195 NZD. (for up to 4 people in one helicopter). It includes 6-10 heliski runs, a gourmet lunch, all safety equipment, guides, transfers and DOC fees. Leaves from either Queenstown or Wanaka. Excellent value for a sensational day!
