To fly in a nimble helicopter into remote ski terrain is an out-of-body experience! Treat yourself and your partners(s) to magical descents led by our dialed guides. For the special option of unlimited runs, book a private helicopter.
Come experience refreshing, deep powder heli skiing with us in the sweet spot of America’s Northern Rockies where geography and snowy weather patterns combine to make a paradise for skiers and riders. We perform our helicopter skiing tours in the southern portion of the Selkirk Range, the mountain chain known for its reliable, deep snowpack and the world’s largest concentration of heli-ski and snowcat operators. Powder days here are plentiful and yours to savor as you join our licensed and expert guides who understand the quality and value of heli skiing in this pristine and beautiful area.
Tours require at least 4 guests in order to run.
Unspoiled Idaho State Forest land forms our heli terrain which consists of everything from cornice-topped alpine cirque bowls and huge powder fields (developed by the historic Sundance Wildfire of 1967) to narrow rock-lined chutes and, of course, the famous Selkirk snowghost-covered runs from treeline. Runs range in length up to 2,200 ft.
The snowpack remains reliable and consistent. We draw moisture from the north and south, so we’re usually in the path of storm systems all season long. That produces over 300 in during an average season with a stable snowpack depth averaging about 120 in that holds from January through March.

We ultilize two heliports: Hill’s Resort on Priest Lake (with whom we offer ski & stay packages) and Granite Aviation at Sandpoint Airport. At Hill’s Resort, we use the golf course as our briefing and meeting area; at Granite Aviation, we use their main terminal.
