You’ve always wondered about it—maybe even seen the helicopters buzzing overhead. But you’ve never taken that first step. Why? Because you think heli-skiing is too extreme?

At Powderbird, that’s far from the reality. Helicopters are simply the tools we use to access the best backcountry skiing we can find.

The ultimate skiing experience is more attainable than you think.

Utah Heli-Skiing

Heli-Skiing in Utah: Fly out of Park City and Snowbird

Our heli-skiing adventures depart from our Heliports near Historic Park City and at the base of Snowbird in Little Cottonwood Canyon. These locations are centered near world class resort skiing at Snowbird, Alta, Deer Valley and Park City. Spectacular accommodations, restaurants and shopping are minutes away from our helicopter gateways to pristine backcountry powder skiing!

International Heli-Skiing

Greenland, South America, & custom international

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.

Largest Ski Terrain Access in Utah

Powderbird heli-skiing accesses over 170,000 acres of skiable terrain

Set in the heart of the Wasatch and Uinta Mountains, Powderbird accesses over 170,000 acres of skiable terrain with several micro-climates that often deliver more than 600 inches of world famous Utah powder. It is a powder skiing mecca that draws people from all over the world.

We build each daily itinerary by selecting from a dozen distinct operating areas, each with tens of thousands of acres of terrain. Our circuits all have a slightly different feel and offer varied terrain, such as the glacially carved features of the Northern Powder Circuit or the sub-alpine tree runs and wide open bowls we often ski in our American Fork operating area.
