“Ultimate skiing suited for riders who love big speed turns"

Ski the Wild West coast of Greenland with 2000 meter runs from summit to sea just south of the Arctic Circle where the sun is up for 18-20 hours a day.

Unmatched in beauty Greenland offers some other most thrilling skiing you will find anywhere on the planet. Greenland Heli Skiing is located 60 kilometers north of Maniitsoc on the Eternity Fiord in the village of Kangaamiut where you will live close to the local population as they go about their daily lives.

When you ski the Wild West coast of Greenland the one phrase that sums it up is “ultimate skiing” suited for riders who love big speed turns in spring snow with tons of glacial runs dropping as much as 2000 meters to the fiords below.

While you may encounter all snow conditions most of the skiing is done on spring snow on southern aspects, and powder snow on the northern aspects. Also with the maritime snowpack, and late season the risk of avalanches is lessened making for some awesome vertical drops.

"Taste some of the local delicacies"

Greenland Heli Skiing rent houses from some of the local families, and provide all meals, and a heli-ski lunch as part of the package. For dinner you will get to taste some of the local delicacies like reindeer, musk ox and halibut. Wine and beer are also available, but for an additional price.

All the houses are nice and warm built to withstand the harsh winters, and come with all the amenities you would expect, except for the toilets that utilize a bag system that is changed on a daily basis.

Air Greenland supplies the helicopters Aerospatiale Squirrels that have been outfitted for Artic flying with all pilots having Artic and heli-skiing experience. Safety first!

The package includes everything from when you arrive at Maniitsoq plus 6 hours of heli-time to use. Additional flying time can also be purchased from Greenland Heli Skiing.
