Heliskiing - a dream that becomes true.

Heli Skiing Arlberg

Every Freerider’s mouth waters when thinking about Heliskiing and for many it is a dream. Heliskiing in the Arlberg mountains is an unrivalled skiing adventure in Austria. According to the snow conditions and the technical skiing ability of the group the guide will decide if the 2652m high Mehlsack or the Schneetäli (2450m) will be traversed. After a spectacular exit from the helicopter a perfect sloping, sheer, endless 1100 metre descent into the Zuger Täli awaits.

However, the day is not yet over. We go back into the Lech skiing region with the Zugerberg ski-lift. At lunch (not included), the already strained skiing muscles can relax briefly. According to the snow conditions, the guide will decide on the best powder descents back to windup the day together, where over a drink, pictures and small movies will be considered and exchanged, as well as laughing about the experiences of the day.
