Spectacular accommodations, restaurants and shopping are minutes away from our helicopter gateways to pristine backcountry powder skiing!

greenland helicopter skiing

the new last frontier

Most of Greenland lies below 1000 meters of ice, around its edges the icecap spills down into thousands of glaciers, sculpting out fjords and rugged mountain ranges. It is here, where the glaciers clash with the North Atlantic, that we are blessed with some of the most scenic and coveted ski terrain on the globe.

The central Andes of Argentina offers skiers numerous opportunities for first descents and long vertical runs in one of the world's most vast and dramatic mountain ranges. The towering alpine peaks, volcanoes, and deep valleys make the Andes one of the world's great mountain ranges, and Powderbird's top destination for helicopter skiing south of the equator.

International Helicopter Skiing
