Utah's best helicopter skiing

Founded in 1973 as one of the world’s first helicopter ski operators, Powderbird has grown into a premier, year-round, international guide service.

Today our professional guide team is dedicated to providing our clients with the pinnacle experiences in guided helicopter skiing and mountain adventures.

daily flights from snowbird & near PArk City

Powderbird provides premier single day, multi-day, and helicopter skiing + lodging packages at our home in Snowbird and internationally. Our heli-skiing/riding adventures depart daily from our heliport, located slope-side at Snowbird.

We ski on the largest commercially permitted area in Utah. With our helicopters and within our permitted area, we access more terrain than all of Utah's ski resorts combined. Our ski terrain is blanketed with over 500+ inches of the world-famous Utah powder each winter. This low-density snow blankets a variety of alpine bowls, open meadows, and chutes, drawing deep powder enthusiasts from all over the world.

the pinnacle day

Start the day with a warm breakfast at the Powderbird heliport and a weather briefing from your Powderbird guide. Boot-up and fly into the backcountry to ride Utah's coveted powder snow. Each day of helicopter riding is based on 6 runs and 7 flights. After exploring the awe-inspiring Wasatch mountain range, fly back to the Powderbird heliport to enjoy après ski and the evening's sunset. Finish the day with one of the the Cliff Lodge Spa's rejuvenating treatments or unwind poolside.

ski every day - guaranteed

At Powderbird, our search for the best snow never stops.

No matter the weather, our professional guide team is committed to taking our clients to the absolute best skiing they can find- whether that's via helicopter, or exploring the best areas of Snowbird.

Powderbird offers registered guests a VIP Snowbird skiing experience for days when the helicopter cannot fly due to weather or safety concerns.

Remarkably, our heliport is a mere 45 minutes from Salt Lake City International Airport where direct flights from London, Paris, Amsterdam, Tokyo, Los Angeles, and New York arrive everyday. Park City & Salt Lake provide a multitude of hospitality & dining options, and many activities.

explore international helicopter skiing


In 2002 our team formed Powderbird International and set off to Greenland for our first exploratory helicopter skiing expedition. Upon our arrival, we discovered a land with near infinite skiing possibilities and set about building an operation to meet the professional standards of Powderbird. Powderbird has continued to expand our international operations with trips in Greenland, South America and beyond.
