Our Terrain

Southern Lakes Heliski boasts the most terrain of any heliski operator in the Southern Lakes region, flying out of Wanaka or Queenstown every day.

We offer access to incredible glacier skiing, in excess of 800 Runs spread across 17 different New Zealand mountain ranges and at 2,585m (over 8,400 feet) the highest heliskiing terrain available in the Southern Lakes region.

Our extensive terrain around Wanaka and Queenstown, allows anyone from intermediate to expert to find something to suit their ability.  Our alpine maritime environment has no trees, which makes for breath-taking views, and our endless untouched backcountry features wide-open bowls, steep chutes, rock drops and natural half pipes.

Lots of terrain means we have the best chance to access any available powder on any given day.
