Clients will have a full day experience based at the Powderbird heliport that includes breakfast, lunch and guided skiing at Snowbird with lift line cutting access and entry into The Cliff Lodge.

the most accessible

Powderbird's heliport is nestled in the beautiful Wasatch Mountain Range surrounded by an abundance of world class ski resorts, such as Snowbird, Alta, Brighton, Solitude, Deer Valley, and Park City. Remarkably, these locations are 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. With Salt Lake nearby, a day gliding through powder in the mountains can easily be capped off with fine dining or an NBA game in the valley!
