Heliski Arlberg

Austria: Tyrol

Get out of the lift lines and into the deep, untracked powder of Arlberg with a heliski trip!

"Powder adventure with epic terrain in the Austrian Alps"

If you want to truly experience the thrill of skiing or snowboarding, there’s no better way to do it than with a heliski trip and Arlberg is home to some of the best heliskiing terrain you’ll find anywhere in Europe. Heliskiing in the Arlberg mountains is an incredible adventure and unlike any other ski terrain in Austria. During a heliski Arlberg trip you’ll have the chance to traverse and descend from 2652m high Mehlsack or the 2450m high Schneetäli, both incredible, breathtaking runs down to the valley below. But it doesn’t end there because you’ll board the helicopter and take off on another thrilling ride. 

During this heli day trip you’ll stop for lunch in the Lech skiing region and take the Zugerberg ski-lift to begin the freeride portion of the day where your guide will help you find some epic descents and all the powder you can handle. The day will end with a drink and chance to chat and watch movies of the day while hanging out with a few new friends.
