With just a 1.5 hours drive to the heli pad, your tour guide will make a scheduled stop at the rental store to collect any equipment you require.

    Today you will be heli skiing and boarding a vast mountainous area spanning three 3 ranges – The Arrowsmith, Ragged and Palmer Ranges. Charge up your cameras, because this is footage you’ll be bragging to your mates about.

    Ohau is the hidden gem of the Southern Alps. With no crowds, at times it can feel like you have the mountain to yourself. There are some groomed runs, but most of the runs are off piste. With a good mix of learner and intermediate and expert runs, but those who are keen to earn their turns can hike up to the ‘Ridge Run’ for some unforgettable views and riding.

    With your legs and bodies now conditioned to riding virgin snow, your experienced heli guides will be taking you to some of their favourite spots. Tonight we’re mixing it up with dinner at the Mexican Restaurant in Wanaka.
