Heli-Skiing

More Details

The Telluride Adventure Center works with Colorado’s premier helicopter ski company, Telluride Helitrax , to bring advanced-intermediate to expert skiers and snowboarders a memory of a lifetime at some of the highest elevations in North America.

The Helitrax Eurocopter S350 B3e helicopter allots guests exclusive access to over 200 square miles of high alpine basins, cirques and summits. Backcountry enthusiasts can expect an average of 6 runs over the course of a day, totaling approximately 10,000-14,000 vertical feet.

Almost all terrain is above tree line, and while most days start with a moderate angle run (equivalent to double blue and single black runs, as rated by Telluride Ski Resort) to assess the conditions and group ability levels, our expert guides will seek out steeper terrain (similar to single and double black diamond runs) if snow conditions, avalanche hazard and group ability allow. Our guides do not consider any of the runs they bring guests on to be extreme, and the pace of the skiing and snowboarding is not rushed at any point in the day.
