Our heli ski area extends about 300 km from east to west and some 200 km from north to south. That makes about 60 000 square km. This area has more than a hundred peaks, all covered in snow, just waiting for you. This is the largest wilderness area in Europe and the environment for a unique experience.
The terrain ranges from easy to challenging. Close to Riksgränsen we have skiing suitable for red and black run skiers. If you want to join us for the more remote areas like Kåtotjocka/Mårma or Kebnekaise, you need to have prior off piste-skiing experience.
We have the highest level of security in terms of skiing and helicopter transport. All skiers in the group will be provided with an avalanche transceiver, shovel and probe. All our guides are certified UIAGM/IFMGA mountain guides. For flight safety reasons names and contact details for all participants must be stated in the booking.
All our guides are certified UIAGM/IFMGA mountain guides.
5 skiers/guide max.
Besides normal skiing equipment, it is recommended to bring a hat and ski goggles. There can be a lot of snow flying up from the helicopter wash. Snowboarers are welcome. Because the runs are in a big way due to fall line and we will be picked up where the slope ends it is possible to mix skiers and snowboarders in the group without anyone having to wait.
• Heli-skiing with professional mountain guide certified by UIAGM/IFMGA
• All safety equipment for off-piste skiing and glacier skiing (transceiver, shovel, probe and rope and harness for glacier skiing when needed.)
• The best possible skiing in a wonderful wilderness area.
