Peter Simson and his kids Natalia & Oscar do exactly that when they visit Queenstown in the winter. Flying out of the Alpine Choppers hanger with Stefan at the controls and Peter Rasmussan (Lead Guide) and myself on a charter to find Powder in the Mountains not far from town was our mission.
We were straight into it, finding safe lines, as we had recieved new snow over the previous days and snow stability was not the best, and route selection was the key to having a day to remember for the right reasons.
A private charter is the ultimate in Heliskiing, and Alpine Heliski are the guys to talk to when it really counts. If you want the mountains in our back yard to feel like you own them for a day or 2 as well as a helicopter then get in touch with us at Alpine Heliski and see for yourself.
Peter, Natalia and Oscar loved every moment of the day, and were skiing like there was no tomorrow, take a look at our photos of the day and picture yourself being there…
