The time to go heli-skiing in New Zealand is between July and September. Prices are fairly reasonable, if you exclude the air fare. Four runs will cost you about $650, and the area has more than 5,000 square kilometers of terrain covered with fantastic powder. Most hills are accessible by a helicopter and the landscape is extraordinarily varied – trees, steep hills, verticals of more than 8,000 feet, moguls, and don’t forget drops.
