Have you dreamed of reaching the freshest most untouched powder in the world? LUEX can get you there with one of our many heli skiing trip options. Heli Trips are the ultimate way to explore backcountry skiing or riding. You will feel like a kid in the candy store when you soar over beautiful untracked powder and endless peaks. When the helicopter lands your real adventure begins.
Heli ski trips are great for groups or individuals, and you will always be accompanied by an experienced mountain guide. If you have the money, heli skiing is still the fastest and easiest way to reach the snow-capped peaks that you’ve only dreamed of until now. By choosing a heli ski trip you’ll have the opportunity to reach backcountry terrain that even snowcats and snowmobiles can’t reach; that is adventure at its finest. With a helicopter as your transportation, you can maximize your day, doing as many runs as you can handle, and if the snow gets bad, the helicopter will pick you up so you can have access to only premium powder. With a heli trip, the possibilities are endless.
Heli Trips are available throughout the world. With a heli ski trip, your experience is going to be amazing, but each country has something different to offer. A heli trip to Canada’s lush backcountry will be completely different from the towering Alps in Switzerland. Or head to Kamchatka for a heli trip that is a world apart from the rest. You might choose a heli trip in a familiar location, or you could choose an exotic destination where you’ll experience new culture and new landscapes too. Whatever your preference, the LUEX crew will help you to find the perfect trip for you. Do you want adventure and steeps? Or do you prefer mellow runs? Maybe you prefer luxurious accommodations, or a cozy wooden lodge? You can choose to heli ski for just a day, or enjoy a multi-day trip. Do you want all-inclusive or something special for your group or private trip? We have something for everyone and every budget.
Canada: Explore the “wild west” and Heli ski in Canada’s remote backcountry. In Canada, powder cowboys will love the top conditions, combined with safe and reliable service. Canada is to skiers and snowboarders, what Hawaii and Indonesia are to surfers: paradise. Canada Heli ski Trips offer endless backcountry because of the large expanse of unpopulated terrain, which means you could have first descents on every trip!
Alaska: This is where every freerider should ski before they die. Alaska is a land of extremes: extreme location, extreme terrain, and extreme snow. Compared to Canada, the lodges might be more rustic in average, but in Alaska you’ll experience wild and steep terrain that you’ll never forget. Because you’re often in close proximity to the sea in Alaska, you’ll often have favorable avalanche conditions. Are you ready for the next level? Alaska’s waiting.
The Alps: If the vast and wild terrain of Canada and Alaska isn’t for you, you might enjoy the beautiful Alps where service is a priority. Heli skiing in the Alps is much more regulated; you might not have the first turns and untracked freshies of Alaska or Canada, but you can be sure to have beautiful and long runs, up to 3.000 meters vertical per run with the right conditions. And don’t forget, you’ll be in the fabulous beautiful Alps!

Choosing the Right Trip:
Ability: Heli skiing isn’t just for experts. The movies might make you think that heli skiing isn’t for you, but it’s really for everybody who loves skiing or riding powder. There are trips for every level, and safety is always a priority. Ask LUEX and we can help you find the trip and terrain that is perfect for you.
Other factors: When you choose your trip, think about group size, helicopter type (does it have a large capacity for your group?), the experience of the guides, the location, accommodation options, and safety protocols. Is the terrain suitable for your level? Is it suitable for snowboarders as well as skiers? Another aspect to consider is if the package includes alternatives for “down days” when the weather is bad. Is there a snowcat backup if the helicopter isn’t able to fly? You should also think about the comfort level of the lodge for what type of trip you would like. Also consider that some lodges are quite remote and might require a full day of travel to get to.
Prices: Heli skiing in general is not cheap, but there still might be the perfect trip for your budget. Our huge selection of trips and expert service means that we can probably find something that is perfect for you. Some destinations are cheaper than you’d think and we often know a few tricks to help you find the right accommodation for your budget too. If you don’t think you can afford a heli ski trip, a day trip in the Alps might be a more affordable option than you think. Whatever your budget, heli skiing is the ultimate way to ski.
